  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Bruno Tonioli: The Chronicles of Dancing with the Stars has a new prince: Prince Mario!

    • Marissa Jaret Winokur: Last week we had out highest scores and then boom, we are in the bottom two, but seven yeras ago I was diagnosed with cancer an dafter surviving that, it put everything into perspective and I'm not gonna let a little red light freak me out.

    • Jason Taylor: I thank Kristi for letting me have the top spot for a week but I'm sure she'll take it back.

    • (Some of the judges comment during Jason Taylor & Edyta Sliwiska's Tango)
      Len Goodman: I must say you did a very very good job. It was a bit too much like an Argentine tango, not a ballroom tango.
      Carrie Ann Inaba: You are truly developing as a performer. I thought it was fantastic and intregingly great.
      Bruno Tonioli: I hate you because you are so beautiful the two of you. Tonight was so sexy, so beautiful. Poetry in motion. Edyta you have never danced better in all the seasons I seen you. Jason you are right on top with her. Stunning!

    • Jason Taylor: Do I look as silly as I feel?

    • (Some of the judges comments after Mario & Karina Smirnoff's Jive)
      Bruno Tonioli: That was the spirit of Rock 'N Roll. That was what a Jive should be. Fast, energenic, youthful. That's you!
      Carrie Ann Inaba: This is one dance where all that wildness you bring to the dance floor works. I thought it brought a certain flavor. I thought it completely worked.
      Len Goodman: The whole thing had a roughness about it for me. It was alright. As for the tune, what was it...Little Bitty Pretty One, (Mario sings it) I've just got to say your feet are bloody big ugly ones.

    • (Some of the judges comments after Kristi Yamaguchi & Mark Ballas' Samba)
      Bruno Tonioli: For me, you looked like a bejeweled hummingbird going from flower to flower in a tropical jungle. You always take the biggest techinical challenges over any other competitors.
      Carrie Ann Inaba: I can't believe I am going to say this...I didn't care for it. I know it's Kristi Yamaguchi and she's amazing and she's been amazing every step of the way. It was slightly a bit awkward. It felt a little out of control and it wasn't as graceful as you usual are.
      Len Goodman: Dancing is a balance and if you have too much of one thing, you lose a little bit of something else.

    • (Some of the judges comments after Kristi Yamaguchi & Mark Ballas' Quickstep)
      Bruno Tonioli: For me you are definetely a super candidate with a super ticket for the finals. That was such a great quickstep. It had such great detail. What more do you want...you're there!!
      Carrie Ann Inaba: I love that you two dance towards the judges. Everyone else dances that way (Pointing away from the judges). I thought you got a little out of sync there. Your technique is always flawless. I could never fault you on that.
      Len Goodman: I've been fed up all day, but that has cheered me up to no end. I thought it was great. Fabulous! Right back where you were a couple of weeks ago.

    • Mark Ballas: At the end of the day, it's the dancing, not the lifts, that are going to get you tens from the judges.

    • Kristi Yamaguchi: (After last week's scores) It's the first time I haven't been on the leader in this competition, but it just makes me that much more determined to go for it this week.

    • Cristian de la Fuente: No pain, no mirror ball trophy.
