Fire and water equaled success for the blues, while the reds were doomed to scrub for a service that would end on time... albeit a little bit sloppy. And by sloppy, we mean that Ramsay was pissed off. Elise called out Gina without having nominated her... But it was good enough for the head of Hell to send the hounds after her. We're down to the dirty dozen...

... and we're going back to school, because for our next service, Hell's Kitchen is hosting the 20-year class reunion of the Culver City High Class of 1991. Q was a member of a class of '91 herself.. but a state over.

And quote of the night goes to Paul: "Anyone who said that (high school's) the best years of your life has never been to college."

CHALLENGE #6: A Class Affair (creativity and communication)

Joining Ramsay in the kitchen... three committee members. They'll talk with Elizabeth and Paul. Paul takes detailed notes for the Blues... while Elizabeth kinda zones. The theme: Hawaiian luau. That's important, because each team will cook three dishes - one starter, one main, and one fish - for the event. The dishes that best suit the theme will win reward.

And Elise heard that the theme was Asian. There are a lot of Asians IN Hawaii (myself having lived there for three years), but... REALLY, ELIZABETH?

NATALIE: Ahi Tuna on a Crostini
CARRIE: Ahi Tuna Tartare
WINNER: Natalie (Blue up, 1-0)

MONTERRAY: Roasted Tenderloin with Mango Pineapple Chutney
KRUPA: Nut-crusted Pork Loin with Bok Choy & Lentil
WINNER: Monterray (Blue wins, 2-0)

WILL: Banana-Leaf Wrapped Hawaiian Moonfish
ELISE: Guava Chipotle Scallop with Bacon Lardons (Elizabeth missed the bit about one member being a pescatarian who couldn't eat meat)
WINNER: .... guess.

... fine. SWEEP IT UP! Blues are going on an away day to a four-level luxury yacht with a bar. And speaking of sweeps, that's what the Reds are going to do, in preparation for the reunion dinner.

Blues... I'm on a boat! I'm on a boat! Everybody look at me 'cause I'm standing on a boat! "That ain't a boat, bitch. That's a yacht!" Fine, you're on a yacht!

Back at Hell's Kitchen, some people are pulling their own weights... and others are named Elise. The Blues saunter in... stinking drunk and not really remembering what was taken where... Oh Natalie... you're so gonna regret seeing this.

The next day, it's time for a high school reunion, while the Blues are moving a little slower than usual, while the Reds are putting together a three-layered cake. And since their combined cake expertise add up to something less than one, they decide to pool their ignorance into something that honestly looks like crap.

And then Elise and Carrie go at it like mean girls... AGAIN. Did I mention that the cake looks like crap?

Ramsay enters early to make sure everything is in order. The dining room looks awesome. The cake... looks like crap. No, seriously, it looks like someone dropped trou and went all over it.

We quickly forget about THAT travesty and go into another... James in a lei. OPEN HELL'S KITCHEN, you.

DINNER SERVICE #6: Hawaiian High School Reunion

Aloha, wahine, mahalo. In addition to the regular menu, we have the dishes from the challenge yesterday. That puts the Reds at a disadvantage, because they don't even know how to make those dishes.

The Blues are hoping that this'll be easy money in the bank. Sure are starting that way. The Reds... are just a little too eager. Blues are onto entrees, and Paul has an uncharacteristic weak first table with a raw snapper.

A leader is sorely needed on the Reds... Elise volunteers. And the appetizer train starts a-rollin'. Meanwhile, the train is stopped on Monterray's station with cold pans, broccollini, and a trash can. Meanwhile, Carrie's rice is being reheated. And don't think Ramsay didn't notice. Back on the blues, and Paul... underdoes the snapper. On the committee's table. Paul gets off the fish, and Monterray and Jonathon try to rescue. Elizabeth needs to redeem herself... Done. Red diners are enjoying their meals, while a very special blue table (the committee table) has yet to receive a snapper. Jonathon's .... doing... something... so Monterray is left on fish himself. He... overdoes it, and Ramsay sends the entire team back to the dorm. Thanks a lot.

Meanwhile, the Reds are finishing up dinner... and are called to serve the blue diners.... who are still waiting for food. They won't wait for long. Reds win this one in a walk, while the Blues are walking over each other over who should be the next to go.

Back in the kitchen, Ramsay treats the diners... and the Red Team... to a hula show. Well...


The Blues nominate Monterray (screwed fish) and Paul (screwed fish). Ramsay adds on Jonathon (screwed fish).

Paul says he's sick on his performance, taking full responsibility. He says his fire isn't out... Back in line.

Jonathon says he's a better communicator than Monterray. Monterray says he's more experienced. "Maybe knife skills as well." Ramsay's about to make his cut, I wouldn't talk about knife skills...

... And speaking off, say goodnight MONTERRAY.

"It was high school reunion night in Hell's Kitchen. Unfortunately, for Monterray, he flunked the test."
