QuickFire Challenge Dishes Shown:
Marcel: Frank asked me, 'Do you want to be my partner?' It was kind of like being asked to go on prom with somebody that you're not totally interested in, but for fear of not having anybody else to go to prom with, you're like, 'Okay.'
Tom Colicchio: These are about choices. Someone's gotta say, 'Hey, that looks like Pepto-Bismol we can't serve that. Let's fix it. Let's fix the problem.'
Elia: (after being told her kidneys taste too much of kidney) Is this woman for real? I'm supposed to make kidney taste like olives, with a sauce?
Betty: Marcel went for that pig's blood. Kinda looks like a vampire, don't you think? (thunder sound)
Chef Joseph Ojeda: (about the basil in the pomegranate drink) It's not very sexy to be plucking out greens out of your mouth while you're in a dinner date.
