      • Tom Douglas: How many people use stale bread to make their bread crumbs, right? Stale bread to make your turkey stuffing. What the heck are ya thinking?! You buy $25 a pound crab and you put stale bread with it. It doesn't compute!

      • Emeril: (while making the bisque) You see how thick this is now? Okay, too thick. So, we're gonna add a little cream. (he pours in a quart of cream)
        (shocked murmurs from the audience)
        Emeril: (irritated) Oh relax! It's gonna feed 45 people, ladi— geez!
