    • Kevin Brauch: I have a new found appreciation for cutting cheese. Alton Brown: Did you ever know that you needed such a big knife to cut cheese? Kevin Brauch: Well, we've actually seen fish go down more easily than the cheddar. Alton Brown: Live fish!

    • Alton Brown: They're cleaning a really big fish, that is a striped bass, as sous chef Ryan is on fish-cleaning detail. You know, the Chairman has a saying here, "you gotta gut 'em, before you can cut 'em." Or at least I think he does.

    • Alton Brown: (as Cat Cora grates cheese) That's funny, that box grater would be demolished if she just dropped that cheese onto it. She's got a fifteen pound block of farmhouse cheddar going into an eight dollar box grater!

    • Alton Brown: To the victor I offer this cautionary proverb, "remember, the early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese."

    • Chairman: You have been here as a judge, but today you will be judged. Are you ready for a trial by fire here in Kitchen Stadium? Chef Smith: Yes. Chairman: Very good, and now our pleasant chatter will cease. Tell me, which Iron Chef will feel the burning steam from your high tech stove? Chef Smith: I share a common thread with one of the Iron Chefs. I choose Iron Chef Cat Cora.
