Jamie: Adam, Grant and Tory have worked at ILM for some years. I worked there on one job with Grant and we became friends. Adam and Tory had worked with me or for me before then and, in fact, Adam got his first work in the field when I hired him over a decade ago. I found ILM a great place to work and that there were a lot of very talented people there. Many of the people there have worked with me over the years
Jamie: When Domino's Pizza approached M5 Industries and asked us to design and build the Steak Fanatic Pizza Couch, I knew it was something we wanted to be part of. The Steak Fanatic Pizza Couch is like a guy's dream come true -- only the coolest gadgets and Domino's Pizza all within arm's reach
Jamie: The fact that we are so different is our strength
Jamie: He brings a little bit more science to the show. Adam and I have a sense of how things work. Grant actually has an education in how things work
Jamie: I wouldn't want to be next to this when it's running in the water. Because, we built it, and it's just, you know, as likely to fly apart and send a propeller through my head or something
Jamie: Don't mess with me, duck. When I say "quack", you're gonna quack, right? I'm the boss here. Don't give me any beak
Jamie: Adam would use any excuse to run around in his undies I think.
Jamie: One way or another we're going to blow up that damn toilet
Jamie: I always had a fascination with crossbows. I've had one since I was a teenager. That's why there where no cats in the neighborhood."
Jamie: I'm a little worried because it worked too well, so now we'll go full scale, and it'll blow up.
Jamie: I understanding these things have about a million—or actually, it's 1.3 million—pounds of explosive force. I'm not sure what that means, but it sounds like a lot.
Jamie: This better work...my shirt's all dirty.
Jamie: It may look like salami, it may smell like salami, it may even taste like salami but its rocket fuel.
Jamie: There's meat everywhere
Jamie: Can we at least aspire to not be idiots?
Jamie: Adam's crossbow, you could use as a club and you could still shoot it!
Jamie: Unfortunately, humans are big heavy things.
Jamie: This is going to kill you!
Jamie: Well, it looks like we're not gonna be shooting any more guns off in the shop.
Jamie: It's smaller than my head…it's all right
Jamie:The worst case scenario today is someone dies from a bullet wound
Jamie: We're either gonna die, or we're gonna fly
Jamie: Genetic legacy? IT'S SPERM! Any kid in grade school knows that! Helps make babies
Jamie: It looks kinda like…poo

Jamie: This has got nothing to do with the myth; it's just a big boom
Jamie: Think, then act. Don't act, then think.
Jamie: I'm not sure what it's gonna do, but it looks cool
Jamie: Putting all of these greenhouses up on the roof, I think I'm gonna get checked out by the police for growing pot or something up here, y'know. It's like "What are you doing?" It looks kinda suspicious
Jamie: Yet again we're blowing things up in front of my shop. And not only that but there are noxious chemicals involved which will probably leave a residue over the whole block and, um…I guess it's okay. I'm getting used to it. So are the neighbors.
Jamie: Drown, you bastard!
Jamie: Our death ray doesn't seem to be working. I'm standing right in it, and I'm not dead yet.
Jamie: I kinda like it in here. It's private
Jamie: It seems like you have to take the car tire off in order to change the battery. What is the point? Probably because someone built the damn thing in a computer and doesn't have any sense. Piece of crap.
Jamie: Adam doesn't know it yet, but he's digging his own grave
Jamie: There's poo everywhere
Jamie: When will the fun ever stop?
Jamie: Quack, damn you!
Jamie: Don't let their looks deceive you, these are actually quite deadly
