      • Tyson Cole: (about Paul) He was the first person the I ever worked with, where I would show him something and teach him, and then he'd come back two days later and he would have done it better than I did it. At first I was kind of threatened-
        (Everyone at the table laughs.)
        Padma: Uh, yeah, yeah.
        Tyson Cole: You know what I mean? But then I was like, "You know this guy is- he is really valuable. Like, we need to take advantage of that."
        Gail: We need to exploit that.
        Tyson Cole: (laughing) I know, exactly!

      • Lindsay: (introducing her mentor) I'm gonna look at your shoes so I don't lose it, all right? So Michelle Bernstein is my mentor. She molded this girl from North Carolina with train-wreck hair into the chef that I am, and she taught me how to balance being a badass and a lady at the same time.

      • (The chefs discuss who will return from Last Chance Kitchen.)
        Ed: You know it's gonna be Bev coming back.
        Sarah: Why would you say such thing?
        Ed: You know it is, though. I got a pack of cigarettes says it's Bev.
        Sarah: I got money that Grayson kicks Bev's ass.
        Ed: Pack of cigarettes, or are you gonna raise me?
        Sarah: I'm gonna raise ya a banana.
        Ed: Done. Pack of cigarettes and a banana.
        Sarah: Uh-oh, sounds like a good night.
