  • First Mike goes catfish noodling in Oklahoma, which is basically catching catfish by sticking your hands in an underwater hole and grabbing whatever bites you. Mike then goes to Wisconsin and learns what it takes to be a septic tank technician. Finally, Mike goes to Florida and gets down and dirty with a worm dung farmer who harvests worm poo for fertilizer.

    • John: Worms are low maintenance, real easy to take care of. They basically do three things: they eat, they poop, and have sex. Mike: Man, that's a great life.

    • Mike: You know they throw poop at each other over at that other ranch. Just so you know. Chris: We're a little bit cleaner facility.

    • Mike: (while he's inside a septic tank) Are you a religious man, Les? I'm about to become one. I'm going to be real good for the rest of my life because I don't want to come here when I die.

    • Mike: If I'm supposed to let it bite me, then who's fishing who? Mike: (about the catfish) Jeez, it's like a giant hunk of snot.
