    • QUOTES (5)

      • Emeril: Vince? (he doesn't hear the answer) He's gone. He just left the building. He said, "I can't take it anymore." First, no juice in the lemons. Then, we can't afford cheese. Barely had power to cook it, now I have no rice. I mean… . (deep sigh)
        Woman from Audience: We have you, Emeril!
        Emeril: Well, thank you! (audience applauds) I can tell you one thing: there's enough of me to go around!

      • Emeril: (about the smothered chicken) I like to serve it over rice. Unfortunately, we don't have any tonight. You know, we should have called this the "Low-budget Show."

      • Emeril: Hey Vince! Sorry to bother you.
        Vince: No.
        Emeril: Is there supposed to be, like, maybe, a little cheese in this dish?
        Vince: Uh, no. It's just a, uh, it's just a béchamel.
        Emeril: You're sure?
        Vince: Positive.
        Emeril: All right, Vince. (gusty sigh) First I get no lemon juice, now no cheese. I am feelin' very deprived.

      • (After declaring three lemons "lemons," and giving up.)
        Emeril: (spooning marinade on catfish) We're gonna just take that nice lemon juice like that over– (audience laughs) oh, yeah, look at it, oh. It's like ceviche, there's so much in here!

      • Nicole Learson: (about Hurricane Katrina) As long as you have a stove and a pot, you're good in terms of food; that's-that's ingrained in our culture. It was a time where the best of humanity was demonstrated, and the best way to do that was through a hot, home-cooked meal.
