Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Reward Challenge
      Chef Ramsay demonstrates the proper technique for filleting and portioning halibut. Then each Team is given twenty minutes to fillet their own halibut and portion into 6 oz pieces. The Red and Blue Team each produce 41 acceptable fillets, and for the first time on Hell's Kitchen, there is a tie. To break it, one contestant from each Team must select a single piece of halibut from their piles and the one which is closest to exactly 6 oz will decide the winner. Ben's piece weighs 5.9 oz, and Corey's weighs 4.8 oz, and the Blue Team wins a day on a yacht, while the Red Team must spend their day preparing all the halibut and fish stock for the next service.

    • Best of the Worst: Corey

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Jen: (as the men leave for the yacht) WHOSE HOUSE?!
      Red Team: OUR HOUSE!
      Jason: You can keep your ****ing house, 'cause we're going to the ocean, bitches!

    • Chef Ramsay: Corey, I appreciate your strategy selections, but I can not let someone I do not believe in continue. (nominee Jen looks puzzled) Sharon step up. Take off your jacket and leave Hell's Kitchen.

    • Chef Ramsay: Sharon clearly showed great attention to detail. Unfortunately, it wasn't for her cooking, it was for her makeup.

    • Chef Ramsay: Sharon, you're scaring me. You're like the female version of **** Hannibal Lecter. Put your **** tongue in and concentrate.

    • Chef Ramsay: Is it really too much to know the menu inside out--eat, drink, sleep, breathe it? I've got 3,000 dishes between my ears. Pathetic!

    • Jason: (in an interview segment) I don't think the girls have a clue what they're doing. Well, what do you expect without a man over there to lead them, of course.

    • Chef Ramsay: (to the men, on his private yacht) Gentlemen, welcome to your day of decadence.
      Bobby: (interview) I've never been on any kind of boat in my life. The only boat I ever got near to was The Love Boat on TV. (theme from "The Love Boat" plays briefly)

    • Louross: (in an interview segment) As long as I'm around here, I'm-- I'm just gonna be that loud-mouthed little boy that's gonna be like 'Come on, make that **** look sexy.' (interview segment ends) Let's make love to the fish! Come on.

    • Chef Ramsay: You have to understand what you put in the trash last night. (calls over a garbage truck) Hey, guys, hup! (whistles) I've never seen so much fantastic produce wasted.

    • Chef Ramsay: Sharon, you're scaring me; you're like the female version of Hannibal Lecter.

      This is a reference to a fictional character in a series of novels by author Thomas Harris, later made into several movies starring Anthony Hopkins. Lecter is a serial killer, cannibal and torturer.
