    • Andrew: (while exercising) I got to tell you, I'm just killing time until the dumpling stand opens.

    • Andrew: (about camel paw) Every once in a while, I confront a food that is crazy even for me. And, I think that might be it. I mean braised camel paw, that's as strange as food gets.

    • At the close of the episode, Andrew doesn't mention other unique continental dishes in his trademark sign-off which has since become traditional for his series.
