    • Al (on his controversial interview with Heidi and Spencer Pratt): When I got the assignment they said I'd be interviewing Speidi, I thought, Tobey McGuire? Is it Spiderman 4?

    • (Al's most famous catchphrase on the Today show when he segues to the local weather.)
      Al: That's what's going on around the country; Here's what's happening in your neck of the woods.

    • Al: (on if Katie Couric were to leave Today which then was unsure) None of us can worry about that, because it's not something we can control.

    • Al: (on being weatherman on "The Today Show" as he told The Associated Press) I was just thrilled to get the gig to begin with. Ten years later to still have it is not only thrilling but also somewhat of a puzzlement.

    • Al: I ate myself stupid, I thought, `I'm never going to eat like this again.' The only trick was to make sure I didn't have a heart attack before I did the deal.
