    • Andrew: What's next for me? I don't know. Pine cones in Spain? Iguanas in Tabago? Piranhas in Ecuador? Who knows? You know what I say, if it looks good, eat it!

    • Andrew: Now, that's bizarre! (about bloated corn)

    • Andrew: There is very little that walks, crawls, swims or grows that hasn't crossed these lips.

    • Andrew: Basically, the weirder and more exotic anything is, the greater the chances are that somebody's gonna tell you it's good for what ails you.

    • Andrew: (about to eat armadillo) I have to tell you, the tail sitting there in the pot with the head makes the experience all the more interesting to say the least. Susana (his guide): Oh, it just reminds you what you're eating, no?
