Another hilarious and manic episode for Kitchen Confidential. The Teddy centered episode is great, as we get to see his full comedic chops. The best sequence was from the narration to Tanya about what happens everytime Teddy quits. The whole yelling at the fish while cooking it is hilarious. Then, the ending where Teddy comes back in the late afternoon around 5pm, and him and Jack making up without even saying a word was great. They acted it out perfectly, with Teddy walking in with sunglasses and half-hung over and Jack quickly looking around and then giving him a pound.
The rest was interesting, Jack was back to his ego-maniacal self riding high on being featured in Food and Wine magazine for his sesame crusted Yellowfin tuna. "There's an emulsion, or a glaze, or something that Teddy did." "Talented little bugger ain't he" Great writing.
The ending brings it home, as it eschews the normal cliched learning of a moral lesson or understanding each other better part. It's just, we need him, and we're going to get him.
Definitely recommend this episode for the fans of Teddy, and to get another sense of the camaraderie of a group of crazy guys in the kitchen.
