  • Quotes

    • Michael: (holding up thinly sliced piece of seitan) Just like pork.
      Jonathan: Only flavorless.
      Michael: (laughing) Except without any taste.

    • Michael: (to Frank Thompson) Frank, you don't understand. I'm not a vegetarian, I don't like cooking vegetarian food. If I can't wrap it in pork, I am not a happy man.
