      Anthony: It's not working for me, at all.
      Tim: (holding up the green floral fabric) This is the starring actress! Why would introduce a poor supporting player?
      Anthony: Well, I didn't introduce her, I just introduced her to you, but obviously you decided you just don't want to meet her, so we goin' to put her out!

    • Seth Aaron: The first Challenge, if you don't take your vision and shove it in the Judges' face, right down their throats, and say, 'This is who I am,' I think you might be in trouble.

    • Anthony: I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama. Honey, it is hell being black gay in the ghetto!

      Heidi Klum: In what country, what year?
      Michael Kors: Well, I was just going to say, in a lounge in Las Vegas in 1972 that would have been glamorous but not now.
