At my old restaurant the dish washers would do the majority of the cleaning, we were only responsible for cleaning out stainless surfaces.  It definitely becomes easy to get lazy.   At the new place we clean all the equipment on our line.  It`s not so bad, especially if you keep it clean throughout the night.  I make the morning/lunch crew do a proper clean now before dinner service starts, so we usually can wrap things up pretty fast.
If Chef can't see how to make hangar work in place of ribeye, me thinks she lacks creativity.

No offense, but I think it's a bit of a stretch calling yourself the 'lead line cook' when you don't have all the stations down 100%.  That said, my resume has a section under each job heading for responsibilities.
