      • (About the ability to customize Starbucks orders.)
        Mark Douglas: I like to get a tall vanilla latte, with a little bit of cream on top, and then I like to make the guy behind the counter put on some cinnamon lip balm and gently blow across the top. But that's just me.
        Rob Gorden: Yeah, that is just you.
        Mark Douglas: I'm real popular there.

      • (About the words used to order a Starbucks coffee.)
        Jennifer Leuzzi: I almost feel like they need to make a Berlitz course for it.

      • Dave Olsen: If the coffee's really good, people find it, and when they find it, they want to tell their friends about it. And that was really a dynamic that was responsible for a lot of Starbucks' growth.
