    • Gordon : Cook the dish of your life. Show us why you're here.
      Joe : I don't care if your roommate tells you you're a good cook, your kids, your mom, we're gonna tell you how it really is.

    • Gordon : Where's the lobster meat? You know the claw is not the most delicious part of the lobster, right?
      Joe : You're young, you're good, you're sweet. They're gonna eat you alive and spit you out.
      Gordon : The plantain is disgusting, the steak is like a dog's dinner, I am not gonna argue with you, three no's, you've got no chance.

    • Joe : If you can't cut an onion, you have no business being in the kitchen.
      Joe : Anyone can cook a three minute egg, a MasterChef is defined by what they do with the other 27 minutes.
      Gordon : It's seasoned beautifully, however when you put food on a plate that old fashioned, it really does let that dish down. We're in 2010.
      Graham : I'm sorry, I need all three of you to untie your aprons....and retie them even tighter!

    • Joe : Chocolate is the devil in the box. It'll tempt you and take you down the wrong path.
      Gordon : Ok, first off, my scariest dish: Jenna's. She's doing a sandwich, you do a sandwich with leftover pork. Graham : Yeah I heard her say she's doing a 'ham' sandwich, but there's no ham anywhere in there, just because it's pork, it's not ham.
      Faruq : Watch out, watch out, cuz Whitney's coming!

      Cat Cora : I've made this dish at least a thousand times.
      Graham : Nothing says 'America' like a hamburger, you've probably had 100 in your lifetime, I probably had 50 last week, I guarantee these truckers have had more.

    • Joe : Fusion equals confusion sometimes.
      Sharone : The citrus will be in the apple reduction with the ginger, make sure you incorporate that in there too. Gordon : I love the fact that you're now telling me how to eat, I'm 43, I know how to eat properly. Should I put a bib on?

    • Gordon : If we're on a date, and you cooked that dish for me, I'd go to the bathroom, and you'd never see me again. I'd bolt out the door.

    • Sharone : I tried to make it look like a walk through the woods. Graham Elliot Bowles : It looks like a walk through a crime scene.
