* In the dessert round of part 1 of "Chopped: Impossible," one of the contestants is making a tuile (a savory wafer cookie), and tries making on the stove, but doesn't have enough leverage to properly flatten it. What does she do? She gets another baking sheet to put on top of the tuile mix, puts it on the floor and then ''uses her bodyweight to flatten it by standing on it''. Ted and the judges notice this and are a little confused, but also seem to find it funny that she's doing this.

* During the Hot Pepper challenge episode, Aaron Sanchez comments that the dish could have used more habernero (habernero being a basket ingredient). The other two judges (Zakarian and a guest judge) are eating the appetizer and say that no, it has just the right amount of spice to prevent it from overpowering it. Sanchez shoots an incredulous "whatever, you guys" look over to them. Queue the next contestant (a Chinese immigrant) who didn't think the habernero was spicy by her standards, and all three judges (Sanchez included) [[FireBreathingDiner are practically smoking out their ears.]]
