  • Quotes

    • Andrew: What's next for me? Who knows? Iguanas in Trinidad? Armadillos in Mexico? One thing is for sure, if it looks good, eat it!

    • Andrew: (about the oyster-eating challenge) See, that's the secret... cheating.

    • Andrew: If you can't get your groove on in New Orleans, you don't have much of a pulse or an appetite.

    • Andrew: (about turducken) Good thing the first guy that walked through the door twenty-two years ago didn't come in with a quail, a goat and a cow, you'd still be stuffing.

    • Andrew: (on eating mullet) Scale of one to ten, one being just the thought of it makes me wet my knickers and ten being I would crawl across a desert of broken glass just to take just one more bite; I'm gonna give the tails about a six and a half or a seven. I'm gonna give that row about a negative one.

    • Andrew: Bizarre Foods rule number 15 is that if you can bake it, broil it, or steam it; well, you're probably better off deep-fat frying it.

    • Brett Anderson: I'll tell you what, I ate a lot, but I've got to get me one of your hollow legs.
      Andrew: Oh, really? Yeah, I can put it away, can't I?

    • Andrew: (on Nutria) It tastes like a rabbit that-that mated with a chicken and had a baby.
