  • Quotes

    • Michael: No kosher salt in the kosher kitchen. Ain't that priceless?

    • Michael: Pork is close to my heart, literally. (shows a tattoo over his heart that reads "Got Pork") Asking me to cook without pork is like asking a fish to swim without water.

    • Rabbi Skoff: (about Michael) Around here, he's got the reputation as "The Pig Man". He's gonna be in for a few surprises, 'cause there ain't no pig today.

    • Rabbi Skoff: Do you know anything about Passover?
      Michael: Not a whole lot. I'm a good old west side Catholic boy that specializes in pork.

  • Allusions

    • Michael: I say "koo-gill", they say "kuh-gill". Let's call the whole thing off.

      This is a play on the George and Ira Gershwin song, "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off." The song includes the lyrics, "You say po-tay-to, and I say po-tah-to … po-tay-to, po-tah-to, to-may-to, to-mah-to, let's call the whole thing off."

      The song was made famous in the Frad Astaire/Ginger Rogers film Shall We Dance?. Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong did a version, and the film When Harry Met Sally brought it to fame again 32 years after the original.
