  • The episode before, going to New Orleans!

    9.5
    Well, this is the episode before, going to New Orleans for the, grand finale. And that Stefan has this, wrapped around his finger. Sure he, maybe arrogant and have no matters, whatsoever. But I think, he has cooked the best, out of the others. I am glad that we will see no more, Leah and Hosea romance. As the former is gone. Really can't forgive either her or Hosea for leaving, poor Arianne out to dry. Carla is the only one that I like now. As she has one, heck of a great and funny attitude. And we get, our Gail Simmons back. Toby Young never got along with anybody! Not even Tom nor Padma like him at all.moreless

    • Carla: (on making the finale) I feel like am just, this tortoise, and I've been picking up speed! I'll see ya, see ya!

    • Tom: (after praising Fabio's food highly) There was one problem though, with the dish, the salad on the side.
      Padma: Wylie actually said that it looked like an airplane salad.
      Fabio: (laughingly) You got a point there. I'm gonna go back there and shoot myself, I did an airplane salad, I'm sorry.
      Tom: (laughing hard) It's okay, the airlines are always looking for good chefs.

    • Fabio: I got so many kick in my ass that sometime, when I'm in the bathroom, I still pull shoes out of my ass.

    • Medic: Do you want to go to the hospital?
      Fabio: No way! (later in an interview) Hospital?! I'll chop it off, and sear it on the flat top so it doesn't bleed anymore. Tomorrow, I will deal with nine fingers.

    • Leah: (referring to Fabio's injury) I don't know what I would have done if I ****ed my hand up.
      Carla: No, I would have just rolled with it.
      Fabio: What do you want me to do? It's Top Chef, not Top Pussy. (Leah gives him a look, everyone else laughs) I'm just kidding! (he kisses her cheek) I'm kidding.

    • According to Tom, at least one of the Guest Judges has an inkling of what it's like to do a culinary competition like Top Chef. Every year Jacques Pepin competes on the final Sunday of the Food and Wine Classic in Aspen in "Ready, Set, Cook", which is a mystery-basket cook-off. So far, Jacques hasn't lost once.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Fabio: (having trouble butchering his chicken with his broken finger) So, I get the cleaver and I start to butcher the chicken with the cleaver like Jason from Friday the 13th.
      Friday the 13th, made in 1980, was a slasher film set at a summer camp. No one was actually killed with a cleaver, but several were dispatched with a machete, and one with an axe.

    • Carla: (to Fabio) Fight it out, Rocky!
      Carla is comparing Fabio to another Italian Stallion, the boxer Rocky Balboa from the Rocky franchise of movies.
