Hugh Acheson is optimistic that the best chef will win the whole thing.

Judging time. Ribollita is not usually meaty, so I can understand Curtis’ comments about that, but it can have chicken stock. He comments to the Black team that it is a vegetarian dish and then lauds the Red Team for its authenticity even though theirs had chicken stock in it. Cue Husker Du’s Make No Sense at All. 

Black Team wins! Nicole can’t read scripts, nor can she cook Tuscan food, but she can make some meatballs. Nookie’s plan is not working on this one and he thinks that people should not be lauded for “salty balls.” 

“Regrets are a waste of time. They're the past crippling you in the present.”

That’s a line from Under the Tuscan Sun. I have no idea of its context, as I have never seen the movie, but it makes some cosmic sense here. Thanks IMDb.
