Quotes (5)

  • Jonathan: I'd love to hear why you think you deserve to be in the finals and why you think the others don't. Carisa: I guess, maybe, I have a lot to gain… from this whole experience. Jonathan: But this competition's based on merit, it's not a charity.

  • Carisa: Listen to me, please. Please? Carl: I'm listening sweetie, I wish you'd stop talking to me like a *$&@ing four-year-old!

  • Carisa: (to Matt) Your floor, my wall… let's call the whole thing off.

  • Matt: I'm in my element when I'm at the PDC [Pacific Design Center]. Like, bargain shopping? That's not what I do.

  • Andrea: I'm a little surprised that Carisa made it into the top three. She always delivers in a certain way, but she kind of does a similar thing each time. You know, if she does the same thing again, I think this time it may be, like, one time too many.
