The Bear (2022) s01e07 Episode Script


Thank God you found us
at 93.1 FM WXRT.
I'm Lin Brehmer, your best
friend in the whole world.
It's great to be alive.
So let's start today with a songwriter,
who has been known to climb
on the stage of the Metro
as the Christmas Unicorn,
a rare and beautiful creature
costumed in stunning colors.
And while you've heard
all roads lead to Rome,
some roads lead from Chicago.
This is Sufjan Stevens.
This is "Chicago."
I fell in love again ♪
All things go, all things go ♪
Drove to Chicago ♪
All things know, all things know ♪
We sold our clothes to the state ♪
I don't mind, I don't mind ♪
I made a lot of mistakes in my mind ♪
In my mind ♪
You came to take us ♪
All things go, all things go ♪
To recreate us ♪
All things grow, all things grow ♪
We had our mindset ♪
All things know, all things know ♪
You had to find it
All things go, all things go ♪
"This writer, as all my readers know,
"is devoted to Chicago
and for better or worse,
"the neighborhoods are changing.
"I'm fascinated by the intersection
"of the stalwart and the progressive
"and chronicling my findings.
"Can the windy city evolve
"without losing its true essence?
"We wonder at times if
nostalgia clouds our judgment
"and creates an angry desire
"for perfection with every
turned over spot
"Which is why we have chose to
revisit The Beef of Chicagoland,
"a River North staple.
"Long known as a family joint,
"the purveyor of sloppy,
"but tasty Italian beef sandwiches,
"the word we would have used
to describe The, The Beef
"before this review was 'reliable.'
"The word I would choose now,
"after my most recent meals
"at the well-loved,
if not shabby establishment,
"is 'elevated' or 'elegant.'
The menu is slightly updated"
Twenty minutes to open, Chefs.
- Chef.
- Syd, you set up?
- Uh, yes, Chef, ready to go.
- Thank you.
"and it's clear
more changes are coming."
Chef, stop reading that shit.
We got a lot to do today, okay?
We open in 20, to-go's live in 20.
Let's fucking go.
Oh, you'll like this part, Carmy.
You'll like this part, Carmen.
"Even if the walls are stained,
the staff moves are next level."
Where is Tina? She's still not here?
Uh, no, Chef, I'm covering her prep.
Um, can we maybe Should we, like
"The sandwiches
are so delicious as ever,
"but the standout dish that
"that, that encapsulates all,
"this was the risotto with braised beef.
"The rice was luscious with
a surprising ribbon of brine
"running through the sauce.
The chef obviously knew
what she was doing."
Ebra, enough, please. Back to work.
- Thank you.
- Um
- So
- Ribbon of brine, huh?
Well, I gave a dish to a customer
because I didn't want it to go to waste.
I obviously didn't know who he was.
Chef, it's all good. It's all good.
Um, okay. So, you
know, it was an accident
and, and it's fine, right?
Like, it's not weird or anything like
- Good for business.
- Right, yes, exactly.
- Hey, Syd, congrats.
- Um, and, yeah,
- I just wanna
- Yeah, you better tell your pops.
For sure. And I just wanna
make sure, you know,
like, everything's okay.
It's not weird or dumb, whatever.
It's okay, Syd.
It's not weird. It's good.
- Yeah. Okay. Thanks.
- Alright?
Sandwiches are totally
different, though.
That guy's a fuckin' hack anyway.
- To-go boxes ready?
- Uh, yes, almost.
- Thank you, Chef.
- Sorry.
I'm sorry, sorry, sorry,
sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry.
- Yo.
- Louie got suspended.
Louie, apologize to Jeff.
- Sorry, Jeff.
- That's alright, Louie.
Say hello to Jeff's friend.
- Hi, Jeff's friend.
- Hi, um, Louie.
Hey, T, we got a lot
to do today, please hustle, okay?
I need you to catch up. Thank you, Chef.
Yes, Jeff, but Louie
- What about Louie?
- Um, he needs to know
You need to teach him how
to work in the kitchen.
- Today?
- Mm-hmm.
Sure, Tina. Today, the day
we're running the new program.
Um, Chef Sydney, you got that, right?
- Yeah. Sure.
- Thank you, Chef.
"But it was the coriander"
Okay, Ebra, let's get to work, please.
What are you reading?
Oh, a review, five stars.
- Oh, shit!
- It's nothing.
- It's not
- Is five stars good?
Very good.
What's up?
I need help with him.
Yo. Go wait in Jeff's office
and think about what the fuck you did.
Uh, yeah, um, he is, um,
you know, getting into
trouble, doing dumb shit.
Is not interested in anything
So you brought him here?
Hmm. Claro que sí.
¿Por qué?
Porque you taught me.
You could teach him.
Teach him what exactly?
Uh, your skills, man. You got skills.
- Skills?
- Yes.
Shabby? This guy's a hacky fuck, right?
That's exactly what I said.
Yo. Why's he talking
about risotto, Cousin?
We don't have risotto on the menu.
That's a, uh, dish that
Sydney's been working on.
And how did this
fuckin' mamaluke try it?
Sydney accidentally
left it at his table.
- Accidentally?
- Accidentally.
Let me ask you,
what's the pickup on risotto?
Feel like that's kinda crazy, right?
We're not gonna do that.
No, we're not gonna do that.
Fifteen minutes to open, Chefs!
- Yes, Chef.
- Thank you.
Oh, shit.
Sydney, you blowing somebody
down at The Telegraph?
Yeah, Richie,
that's exactly what's happening.
I'm blowing somebody
down at The Telegraph.
Oh, Louiecito, get over here.
Oh, my man.
Whoa. You bulking up?
- I'm trying, yeah.
- Yeah, man, looking good.
Okay, um, can we please go
over the new system today?
You got it, boss.
Fascinating how you accidentally
gave a dish that's not on the menu
- Cousin. Hey!
- to a guy who happened to be
Do me a favor. Shut the fuck up.
No, it's just, it's hard to digest.
- Sydney, boxes.
- Yes, Chef.
- Thank you so much.
- Gary, come on.
What's a ribbon of brine?
Okay, Chefs, listen up.
Uh, I'm gonna turn
on the to-go's in 10 minutes.
So we're gonna count off, alright?
Pars all day.
Syd, salads. Count.
Twenty-five all day, Chef.
Twenty-five. Thank you.
Grilled pars. Tina, chicken?
Uh, 32 all day, Chef.
Thirty-two. Thank you.
- Ebra, beef all day?
- One hundred, Chef.
One hundred. Thank you.
Richie, go fuck yourself.
Sixty-nine all day, Chef.
And, Marcus, cakes all day?
Uh Uh, give me a sec.
Nope. Faster. How many?
I just got a little behind.
I'mma catch up.
Marcus, if you're still fucking
with those donuts right now
I'm gonna fuck your day up. You hear me?
- Yes, Chef.
- Thank you, Chef.
No, no, no. Uh-uh.
Nope. Sorry, guys.
This is the thunderdome right here.
Take the kindergarten somewhere else.
Not that I don't appreciate the giddyup,
but you're not quite there yet.
- Um, okay.
- Okay.
Can we please talk about
the new to-go system?
Yeah, you got it, boss.
Fellas, I gotta talk to Sydney.
Excuse me, lizards.
Just, um, take this
and do this over by the deli counter.
Yes. Thank you.
Ten minutes to open, Chefs.
Alright, boss lady, you did it.
Got your little dish in the paper.
A little to-go tablet.
Everything's going
according to plan, huh?
I have a plan?
Yeah, this is what you wanted
to do from the beginning, right?
You know, you push my people out.
Your people?
Yeah, you know, push
out the working man,
- make room for whatever fuckin'
- The working man?
Jabronistas this stupid
article's gonna bring in.
Sorry, um, are you the new
face of the working man?
- Right.
- Richie, congrats.
That is huge.
- Bullshit aside
- Huh?
What's your angle? Level with me.
- My angle?
- Yeah.
Uh, my angle's that
I was hired to work here.
So now I'm working here and
I'm trying to bring business in.
That's my angle.
Yeah, but it's the
wrong kind of business.
You know, you're bringing
in all these fucking strokes.
- They're gonna box out the OGs.
- Okay. The OGs?
Yeah, bus drivers,
secretaries, teachers.
- Sorry, are we just naming professions?
- You know, it's just confusing.
- I can do that too.
- People are gonna know
- Bricklayers, clock workers
- not know what's on the menu.
What's not on the menu is the risotto.
Okay, well, if there's confusion,
let me help clarify some things.
- Okay.
- Okay? Um.
We all work in a restaurant, right?
And, um, we, uh, make
food in the restaurant.
We all try to do a good job.
I don't know about you.
But, anyway, people come
and they buy their food with money
and they spend their money
and then, uh, we take our earnings
and, um, just, you know, live our lives.
That's it.
It's business.
The point of this is
that it is a business,
not, uh, some sort of a hollow shell
you can project your
dying fantasies or whatever.
You don't need to get nasty, young lady.
And you just don't need
to speak to me at all, I guess.
By the way, those OGs
you love waxing on and on about
all come here, split one
sandwich and a free cup of water
and then treat the rest of us like shit.
So this is a war on poor people?
No, this is a war on you
shutting the fuck up, Richie,
and learning how to use the tablet.
- The end, dude.
- What is the end?
The end is that I was telling Richie
that we are learning how to use
the tablet, and it's good.
And it's good for business,
and you and I agree.
Yes. Your idea, but, yes.
Yeah. But you agree w-with me
about the other thing, right?
- Uh, what other thing?
- What's the other thing?
That, That people are gonna come in here
thinking they're gonna get her food.
That's some fuckin'
- millennial shit.
- You are not even Italian.
Stop, it's a little bit messy, okay?
We will figure it out.
I just turned on the to-go tablet.
- Are we ready?
- No.
Nine minutes to open, Chef.
This is gonna be bad.
- Um, Chef?
- Yes.
Uh, sorry, I just don't, uh, feel like
we're on the same page right now.
- I feel like we're not good.
- We're good, Chef.
Let's get through the day, please.
- Chef!
- What?
Fuck. What the fuck?
- Syd?
- Uh, okay.
Um, I, uh, uh, uh.
Cool. I don't know, um.
You left the preorder option open.
O-Okay, uh No. I'm sorry.
- Yes.
- What's that mean?
That means we have
78 slices of chocolate cake,
99 French fries, 54 chickens, 38 salads
and 255 beef sandwiches
due up in eight minutes.
