      Diamond: We'll see about that. We shall see.

    • (After Hang Tough)
      Mike: Storm. You two have a mutual admiration society. I know Alice respects you're talents and you respect hers.
      Storm: Yeah. Very much, Mike. You know I've looked up to this woman. Growing up and being an athlete. I've really respected her and to be able to go up against her today and just have fun and to laugh. You know that's the best thing about this show, is that. We're able to do that. And she has all my respect. She's small, she's tiny but she's dynamite.
      Mike: Alice. We've got a rematch for you against Storm. Only this time, you get her on the track.
      Alice: Oh, I hope so.
      Storm: Oh wait, wait, wait. No, no, no.

    • (Speaking to the Storm, Diamond, Sabre, Viper, Elektra & Tower before the competion starts)
      Mike: All outstanding athletes in their respective fields. (In regards to the Olympic medal competitors) As well as our American Gladiators. They too, outstanding in their respective fields. Atlasphere, Hang Tough. Whatever the test. But I know they are extremely honored to be going against our Olympic Champions, Past and Present. Sabre. Your thoughts in the competition coming up.
      Sabre: Well. You know their Olympic Champions. They've competed with champions from all over the world. But they've never been to the house of the Gladiators. And here they are in the Gladiator home and it'll be tough going. The points will be few and far between. I guarantee it.
