Fire 31, 25! Two out on 31, Chefs!
- Still not there. Again, Chef.
- Yes, Chef.
Thank you, Chef.
Wait on 31, Chefs!

- Chef,
- I'm sorry. It got too hot
- Why?
- It didn't cool down
- Why?
- Well, it was my fault
- Go.
- Fine.

Hold on 17, Chefs!
Why do you hire fucking idiots?
Do you like working with fucking idiots?
- I'll do better.
- Say "yes, Chef."
- Yes, Chef.

Why are you serving
broken sauces? Why? I get it.
You have a short man's complex.
You can barely reach over
this fucking table, right?
Is this why you have the tattoos
and your cool little scars,
and you go out
you take your smoke breaks?
It's fun, isn't it?
But, here's the thing.
You're terrible at this.
You're no good at it.
Go faster, motherfucker.
Keep going faster.
Why are you so slow?
Why are you so fucking slow?
Why? You think you're so tough.
Yeah. Why don't you say this?
Say "yes, Chef, I'm so tough."
- Yes, Chef. I'm so tough.
- Say "fucking yes, Chef. I'm so tough."
- Yes, Chef. I'm so tough.
- You are not tough.
You are bullshit. You are talentless.
- Say fucking hands.
- Hands!
You should be dead.
the sandwich.
You giving that to the homeless guy?
Hands! Somebody fucking answer me!
Get that sandwich
Fucking Christ! Hands! Please! Please!
Yeah! Thank you! Thank you, Chef!
Now what, I put this in the trash?
Chef, do you want me to
strain that oil for you?
No, no, I got it. Thank you, Chef.
Why am I using a toothbrush, Chef?
It's about consistency
and being consistent.
We can't operate at a higher level
- without consistency.
- I like this level.
- Me, too.
- Yeah, well, at the French Laundry,
- you know how much time
- Well, go fuck your French Laundry.
Stupid fucking name.
- Alright, then at Noma
- Oh, and fuck your Noma, too!
- System, baby.
- Noma's the shit, huh?
The best. Teach you
to operate at a level
you didn't even know
you could operate at, Marcus.
And, just so we're clear,
I wanted to work here.
- Mike wouldn't let me.
- No, no, no.
You went halfway around the world
to learn all this fancy,
useless fucking bullshit.
I went to West Lawrence Avenue
and learned every lesson.
- West Lawrence? You talking about DeVry?
- Yeah, exactly!
Oh, DeVry. We're serious about success.
Oh, is that You supposed
to be fucking funny, fucko?
Yeah? Let me tell you something. No,
for real! Where else are you gonna learn
crucial database management
specialization skills
while troubleshooting
a vented Optispark distributor
- in a TransAm?
- I would never need to learn that.
Definitely not Noma!
I would legit do anything to go to Noma.
And eat bugs?
- And be inspired, stupid.
- Oh god,
- and be lame.
- The ice cream machine is broken!
- Shit.
- DeVry teach you to fix that?
You know what?
Actually, yes.
- Go fuck yourself.
- You graduated?
Fuck no.
Does anyone ever order the ice cream?
- I forgot we had ice cream.
- Hm.
every time in the same direction.
Maria forms the dough,
picking up all the flour,
so her board is clean.
She then kneads it, until it is smooth.
The dough should rest
for at least 30 minutes.
Maria roughly chops two cloves of garlic
and two sage leaves.
She wraps this up in muslin
Fire! Table 16!
17! Table 23! Order!
Go faster, motherfucker.
Why are you so slow?
Why are you so fucking slow?
Take a break, sweetheart.

- Hey, you got time?
- Hey. Always. What's up?
Uh, I-I just wanted to say
thanks for this past week.
It's been a really
great opportunity. Uh,
but I wanna do more. I wan
- I know. You want more to do.
- More to do, yeah.
And I wanna get paid.
- You get paid.
- I get paid to stage.
I wanna get paid to work here.
I feel like I've been working here.
I-I did do some extra credit though.
It's um Lot of words.
Yeah, but th-they basically say
we're getting killed on labor.
We're open from 11:00
to 9:00. That's dumb.
We should be open from
11:00 to 2:00 for lunch
- and 5:00 to 9:00 for dinner.
- Mm-hmm.
Not to mention you're spending money
on pretty high-end stuff.
- Farmers market produce
- Is my hair on fire?
Uh, not yet, no,
but you need help, and
you do this, I mean,
these savings, 20% of them
could cover my yearly salary.
That's not even accounting
for other people's, you know?
Plus, we're sleeping on to-go's.
- That's business just sitting right
- Yeah. No, no, no.
We don't have the support
system or organization
for a food-to-go business.
We need to figure out pack
Packaging, right.
On page 27, randomly, um,
th-there's actually
some a pretty good layout
- of just that.
- Page 27?
Yeah, it's mostly graphics.
Yo, Carm!
- Listen
- Yo.
Yo. I can handle this
myself, cousin. I got this.
You're not Ron.
Ron's gone. Gone gone.
- Ron's dead?
- Who is Ron?
My partner, Ron Pager.
He passed away.
I'm running his routes now.
Nancy Chore, Chicago Board of Health.
I'm here to inspect the property.
Okay, Nancy, hi. I'm Carmine Berzatto.
- I'm the owner.
- He's the owner's brother, actually.
He's also dead.
He doesn't look dead.
No, no, I'm not dead. My brother's dead.
- I'm very sorry to hear that.
- Thank you.
Yeah, I'm sorry for your loss, too.
Can I, uh, see some
kind of identification?
Is it? It's interesting.
What's interesting about that?
It's an interesting
logo on the badge.
Nancy, you need anything, just find us.
Make yourself at home.
Okay? Thank you. Thank you.
Thank you.
Where's Tina and Ebra?!
No funny business, Ms. Chore.
- You, too.
- Okay.
I also noted on the COG
that, uh, it's not necessarily flour
that's expensive but the shipping.
So, we could just have
somebody go and pick it up.
Yeah, Marcus.
Okay, sure. Marcus. Great.
No, it can only be Marcus.
Why can it only be Marcus?
Sweeps, Tina, and Ebra don't drive.
Uh, well, what about Richie?
Suspended license.
I-I saw him drive in this morning.
I'm telling you, beware of
bitches with little notebooks.
Sydney walked in here
a couple of days ago,
and now she running shit just like that?
All fucking willowy and scribbling.
"Chef, I would
do anything to work at Noma."
Bitch, look around. This ain't Noma.
The health inspector is coming in here.
She's not nice. She's not
your friend. She may smile.
Don't See the teeth?
Those are daggers.
The point is it's one of a
hundred things we can do
- to save costs and
- Sydney, Sydney, Sydney, Sydney!
Look, I'm sure this is all
correct, okay? But, it's a lot.
The job you're describing
goes way outside
what I can afford to pay a sous,
which I can barely afford already.
But, I-I hear you, okay?
I have every intention of
turning this into an efficient,
respectable place
of business run by adults.
Oh my god. That's some fucking ass shit!
Does anybody know how dangerous this is?
- Yo! Yo! What's going on?
- Nah, just It wasn't dangerous
- What's dangerous?
- Ms. Chore, until you pulled it out.
I discovered a large hole in the tile.
Looks like a former gas line
next to the stovetops.
Not only was it not properly
dry-walled and caulked,
but someone clogged
the hole with napkins
and then proxied over it
with some kind of plastic.
Don't look at me.
Grease seeped into the napkins
and the proxy became unproxied.
- What does that mean?
- A potential cross-contaminate.
Additionally, no hot water
in the hand station.
Wait, that hot water actua
Okay, that one, you know, Ms. Chore,
I told Chicago Ron this a hundred times.
You just gotta wait a minute
You're gonna talk over
me? And take longer?
so you can relax
on that one. So, relax.
Cool. Good.
Health code states
any sink near a prep area
needs to deliver instantly hot water
- to prevent the spread of bacteria.
- Yeah
I haven't even delivered
the big one yet.
- There's a big one.
- W-what is the big one?
Someone left a pack of cigarettes
on the stovetop near the burners.
Not only very dangerous,
but also a potential contaminant.
- Motherfucker.
- You can say that again.
Don't actually say it
again, you fucking idiot!
You're about to get
fuckin' power-washed, cousin!
Unfortunately! These
violations leave me no choice.
- I award you a C.
- No! No, no, no!
- Wait, no, no, no!
- That's some hood shit.
You know what? I'm gonna
caulk that shit right now.
Oh, oh, oh, it doesn't
matter how fast you do it.
I can't come back to test for 30 days.
What! It'll take five
No, no, no! Don't touch that.
It will take five seconds to caulk!
- I can caulk! Let me fucking caulk!
- Richie!
Richie, there's no caulk in-house, dude.
Shut the fuck up, Fak!
See you all later.
Shut the fuck up!
Yeah, but I'm saying
there's no caulk in the house.
Dude, it's okay. We'll fix it.
Bitch at me? You wanna run
this place, you fucking slob?
How do you know
they're not your cigarettes?
Put it in the fucking window!
You put it in the fucking window!
Stop! Stop! Let's not do this.
- That's your C.
- Alright! Here's what we're gonna do.
You're gonna go to the hardware store,
you're gonna get some joint compound,
you're gonna get some caulk,
and you're gonna caulk that shit.
Okay, well, uh, FYI, I'm
not your fucking gopher.
You cocked it up,
you're gonna caulk it out.
Well, I would love to, but, uh,
my license is expired, FYI.
You drove in this morning
Sydney, you wanna help?
You can take him.
No. Time out. I'll Uber. Thank you.
Grow up.
Surge rates, fucko.
Fine. But I'm taking my car.
I I don't care.
He's that broke that took him out?
- I graduated with a C.
- We know.
er er er er
Fak, fix that fucking sound.
Fix that fucking sound.
Please fix that fucking sound!
I will fix it. Fak always fixes it.
The kids come in,
they break it, what happens?
I fix the Balls.
Fak always fixes the Balls.
- Fix it!
- I'll fix the Balls!
Such fucking bullshit.
Can you, um, can you hold this?
Never look back ♪
- You got You gotta wiggle it.
- Oh.
Okay. I should've known
that I had to wiggle it.
Th-that's on me. That's
me that I don't wiggle it.
I wasn't expecting company, by the way.

I respect that.

Where is this shit?
We can always talk to
somebody who works here
No, no, no. I can find this myself.
Can't believe I'm taking
orders from a fucking toddler
right now. You know, my entire
life, I had to listen to everybody
acting all worried about him
all the time. "He's a baby."
Don't get Carmine into trouble."
You know?
I was a baby too once, Sydney.
Nobody gave a fuck.
Okay, um, I'm sorry about that,
but none of that, like,
messed up the wall that
we're here to fix, so
Fuck that. He's giving me crap
about not letting him work
at the restaurant when he was a kid?
You think I give a fuck
where that dude works?
It was fuckin' Mikey.
Wait, why didn't Michael want
him to work at the restaurant?
Because he's a little bitch, probably.
Can I ask, like, what
What was, like, the deal with Michael?
Uh, he shot himself in
the head four months ago.
Jesus. Uh
W-were you guys, like,
related on your mom's side
or like your dad's or
Neither. He was my best friend.
Boom! There's that shit. Told you.
Silicone, adhesive caulk,
acrylic caulk
Are you just reading
what's on the labels?
Okay, we got rubber sealant
I'm gonna find somebody who works here.
I got this.
And then, you know, the,
uh, the produce bill is due.
You know, and the power comes in,
and, uh, I-I can't build
enough of a parachute.
You know, even if we got
this place packed,
that's only, like,
a week of survival cash.
It's exhausting listening to this.
- You asked me what's going on.
- I asked you where you been.
Yeah, you're looking at it.
This is where I been.
Carm, this place is bullshit.
Alright? I mean,
you're never gonna fix it.
Y-you can't start at fucked.
You understand that, right?
- Is that really a question?
- You're operating a business
historically has a lower
success rate than
I don't know, Chicago fucking Bears.
You know, you're having
a hard time keeping
your vendors current, your crew paid.
Alright? And we're not even getting into
the money I lent your brother.
I didn't know Michael took money fromyou
He took a lot of money from me.
I mean, cash infusions for this place,
you know, term loans,
which he never paid back.
Now, I gotta hold you responsible.
How, uh, h-how much?
300 grand.
Jesus Christ, Jimmy.
Jesus Christ is right, Carm.
And it's not like he
put it into this place.
Still looks like some kid
painted it with his ass.
No disrespect, you know, your brother,
he was an animal, you know,
surrounded by dickheads,
and then he lost his mind, and now
he put you in a real tough spot.
That's why you stopped by?
I stopped by to see you.
Shoulda stopped by to break your legs,
but, you know,
I guess I'm becoming forgetful.
Why'd you give him the money?
Very good question.
You know, I, uh
I don't know. He said he was
gonna franchise the place,
but you knew that was bullshit.
You still gave it to him.
I loved him, too.
Let's just do the easy thing here,
and you sell it to me.
No, you just said restaurants
are bad for business.
Who says I'm gonna keep it a restaurant?
I'll get you the money, Jimmy.
Alright? I promise you.
Oh, shit. We're gonna be in
gridlock for over an hour
- 'cause of your new best friend.
- Okay, well
I don't even know why you wanna
work for that little stunad.
- Because he's good.
- Oh my god
Like, whether you like it or
not, he's incredibly talented,
and we could all learn a lot from him.
You know he was one of
Food & Wine's Best New Chefs
Oh, we could
- when he was 21?
- Oh my god!
He was one of
Food & Wine's Best New Chefs?
Is that what you just told me?
That changes everything!
Really good short-term memory,
Richie. Congrats on that.
You know the restaurant could be good.
Like, I know you know that.
Like, it doesn't have to be
a place where the food is shitty
or everybody acts shitty
and feels shitty.
- Like, it could be a good legit spot.
- Okay, you know what, Sydney?
You're getting a little aggressive,
and I think maybe you should just pause
and take a breath
before you start driving.
Man or woman, I'm not discriminating.
It's dangerous to get behind
the wheel when you're hysterical.
The fuck does she keep calling me?
- Hey, why do you keep calling me?
- Fuck me
What's going on with her?
Is she crying again?
What'd you say?
I'd be crying, too.
She's at this different school,
and those kids are a bunch of fuckfaces.
Hold on
Hold on.
Can I just talk to her, please?
Hey, sweetie.
How you doing? You not doing so good?
What's wrong?
Oh, you're scared?
Uh, w-what are you scared about?
I get it.
But, you know what?
You're gonna do great.
I promise.
And if you don't,
I'm gonna give you $500.
But you're gonna do great.
And I'm gonna see you on Friday, right?
Of How can you
Of course, I still love you.
I love you so, so much.
I love you more and more
every day, if that's possible.
I just
No. I don't need to talk to Mommy.
But, uh, call me after,
you know, let me know how it went.
I'm so proud of you, kiddo.
I love you.
Sorry. My, uh, ahem,
my daughter's going through a phase.
Uh, yeah. Uh
Uh, h-how old is she?
Uh, she's 5.
Like Carmy.
Food & Wine's Best New Dickhead.
I fucked up with those cigarettes.
I'm sorry, uh, about Michael.
And I got the wrong caulk, I think.
You did.
I didn't.
Oh, shit.

I also heard there's a

Listen, Sugar
I woke up in the middle of the night

I almost set my apartment on fire.
Does that happen a lot?
Did you look at the thing?
No, I didn't look at the thing.
Pete and I have been going lately,

Yeah, of course Pete would go.

Look, I'm, uh, I'm fine.
Really. You know, I just have
trouble breathing sometimes,

- What?
I-I know tons of
people that cry out of nowhere.
Okay. I just sent it to you again.
Like, I don't wanna
bother you, okay? Uh
No, you're not bothering me,
but that isn't, like, un-scary.
When did the breathing problem start?
I think maybe sometime in New York.
I was throwing up every day before work.
Oh. Okay. Well, that sounds chill.
- I kind of dug it.
- You dug throwing up?
No. No, no, it was awful.
Uh, chef was a piece of shit.
Then why'd you stay there?
I don't know. Um
People loved the food.
It felt good.
Chefs always say a big part of the job
is taking care of people, right?
Yeah. Yeah. No, I guess.
Okay, well, you can't really do that
if you're not taking care
of yourself then.
And I like when you
tell me things. Just
- I'm asking you to look at the thing.
- Mm-hmm.
It's okay to ask for help.
