  • TRIVIA (3)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Female Patron: Chef, you hurt my friend's feelings.
      Chef Ramsay: I hurt your friend's feelings.
      Female Patron: Yes, you did. She's very upset.
      Chef Ramsay: Why?
      Female Patron: Because you told her to **** off.
      Chef Ramsay: Oh really, did I? Okay, will you tell her I meant it?
      Female Patron: Yeah, all right, I'll tell her. Now can we get some food?
      Chef Ramsay: Jean Philippe, s'il vous plait. Escort these two ladies back to plastic surgery.
      Jean Philippe: Ladies, please.

    • Jean Philippe: (to Jeff as their patrons walk out) Right now, this restaurant is just sinking faster than the Titanic.

    • Chris: (on his teammates) Most of these people have little or no experience. I would rather be on a team with dishwashers. At least they know how a restaurant kitchen works.

    • Chef Ramsay: (upon eliminating Carolann) Some can handle it, and some can't. I'm not interested in the ones who can't.

    • Chef Ramsay: What's you name?
      Dewberry: Dewberry
      Chef Ramsay: Blueberry?

    • Chef Ramsay: Take a piece of advice- be prepared for anything and everything.

    • Chef Ramsay: (after tasting Andrew's dish) Now that, is absolute dog****.

    • Chef Ramsay: (after trying Chris' Salmon served on a Cedar Plank) I think you're a plank!
      Chris: I don't really know what that means, Chef.
      Chef Ramsay: A 'plank' means an idiot. Why is it raw on the bottom?
      Chris: Well, it's medium rare. That's how I would eat my salmon.
      Chef Ramsay: Yeah. You need to clean your glasses. It's raw.
      Chris: I don't agree, Chef.
      Chef Ramsay: Let me tell you something, and listen to me: you've a lot to learn, so be a good plank and get back in line.
