    • Court Westcott: I want something that's going to make my inner fat kid cry, all right? That's what I want, okay? I want rich, bold flavors.
      Kameron Westcott: And more is better, here in Texas.
      Court Westcott: I have a Gummi Bear addiction. My wedding cake was a Gummi Bear, a giant Gummi Bear.
      Ed: I can't compute that someone with that kind of elegance is telling me that I should cook Gummi Bears.

    • Chuy: (while menu planning at the entrĂ©e house) The husband's a really adventurous guy. She's high-maintenance. This is why I avoid actually doing these things. I prefer them coming to my restaurant. I can kick them out there.

    • Troy Kloewer: I thought Grayson's dish looked great. It was a little rich for me, I have to be honest, for my taste buds.
      Tom: Oh, I thought it was just impossible to be too rich in Dallas, Texas.
      (Everyone at the table laughs.)
