  • Quotes

    • James Otto: So Charlie, I'm gonna have to bring Michael out on the Opry stage.
      Charlie Daniels: (to Michael) You know how many years it took me to get on that stage? And the first night you show up in town you get to walk on the Opry stage.
      James Otto: You know what I'm sayin'?

    • (After David makes a mistake that costs them cooking time.)
      Michael: (voiceover) Some chefs might start screaming and yelling right now, but that's not how I run things. (to the camera) I give my guys respect, I know they give me respect back, and at the end of the day we get done what we need to get done.

    • Michael: Charlie's gonna understand that pork is the perfect substitute for sad boneless skinless chicken.
