Has anyone heard the relatively new controller at Kennedy? She's a bit humble and seems like a rookie

So they left the gate with the door open, what would have happened if they took off with it open.

I don't think they left the gate with the control panel open. Seems more like the panel hadn't been closed properly before they left the gate and then opened by itself during taxi, which is where they probably got the warning on their displays.

Funny, but why didnt they have the guy in the car close the door?  It would have been much easier.

Does the car ever get there?

As far as i remember the JetBlue confirms the hatch is open and we don't hear from the car again

From what I heard, the car got there and the guy in the car confrimed that the hatch was open.  Because they were talking back and forth about where that hatch is located. And then, I think, the car left.

Well, what would have happened if it came open in flight.
I would not know... I guess that the pressure gradient over the wing would keep a door at the underside of the wing pressed closed.
When the door would open during take-off, it could get ripped off the plane, causing minor damage to the plane, increasing fuel consumption due to worse aerodynamics, etc. The door would likely end on the runway and need to be cleaned up to avoid accidents with planes using the runway later.
For planes with rear-mounted engines lost wing parts could get ingested by an engine, causing loss of the engine.

  like he's having a good time...

Yup, on the A330/340, there is an extendable metal ladder in the nose wheel shaft, via which you can climb down to the tarmac.
