I would totally hire the American Tony!! He's calm, cool, and collected even when everyone else is frenzied. When Rocco harshly (and wrongly) chewed Tony out on the last episode, he just thanked Rocco before hanging up. Classy! made Rocco look like a big whiner.
And now Rocco has brought his italian friend Tony in -- I like Italian Tony -- he reminds me of a little boy who is a little lost. But darn it -- make like a man sometime. Quit buggin' American Tony -- find that sieve, that oregano, the big dish, and everything else yourself. American Tony has a job to do.
And what is up with Rocco's ill treatment of American Tony?? Did you see how Rocco asked for the menu from A. Tony, only to immediately turn his back and confer with I. Tony over it -- as if A. Tony were nothing more than a stooge. I tell you, American Tony holds that place together! He's already past the point where I would have gone into a hysterical rage over the fact of being ignored, yelled at by my childish boss, seeing my good work given credit to another, treated rudely, having to supervise everyone in the kitchen (plus those that Rocco brings in), having my cooking criticized while the Italian chef earns big points for adding a sh**load of salt to the pasta, and working my white-coated tail off around some guy who took all day long in my kitchen to bake a cake and prettily decorate it for Rocco's birthday.
Rocco's got some kind of grudge toward American Tony -- I hope A. Tony finds a better job soon!
