    • Mike: You know they throw poop at each other over at that other ranch. Just so you know.
      Chris: We're a little bit cleaner facility.

    • Mike: (while he's inside a septic tank) Are you a religious man, Les? I'm about to become one. I'm going to be real good for the rest of my life because I don't want to come here when I die.

    • Mike: If I'm supposed to let it bite me, then who's fishing who?
