      • Stephen Colbert: Now, let me ask you [Leonard Nimoy] something. You're taking all these nude pictures of these ladies and making a buck off of them. I'm not going to call you a pornagrapher but I'm just going to say you're making money off of other people's nude bodies.

      • Stephen Colbert: What I seem to hear you saying is that everybody is beautiful.
        Leonard Nimoy: That's absolutely true. That's right. That's exactly what I'm saying.
        Stephen Colbert: What kind of message is that? There's nothing to shoot for then!
        Leonard Nimoy: These are very beautiful people.

      • Stephen Colbert: I don't have any problem with the women being large. You've got a good point. The models are thinner and the average American woman is larger. Everything about America is bigger. We have big S.U.V.'s and we got big butts to fit in those S.U.V.'s. That's what we do. We supersize it.

      • Stephen Colbert: This book is called The Full Body Project. It is photographs of women who are larger than what our societal image of beauty is. Is that a fair characterization?
        Leonard Nimoy: I think that's true.
        Stephen Colbert: Ok. Here's my problem with it, Mister. Society has agreed what beautiful is. Ok. Blonde, thin, big tits. Ok? This is questioning what society has agreed upon. What other part of society do you want to just chuck out?

      • John Feinstein: The problem with steroids, besides the fact that it's against the law which isn't that big a deal, and besides the fact that they were banned by baseball in 1991, is they kill you. You take steroids for a long time and you die.

      • Stephen: I certainly hope that applause was for Clemen's ass. It is magnificent.

      • Stephen: That makes me so angry! Look at my face, how angry I am! Sorry, folks, I've got 'roid rage. Everyone here knows I'm juicing.

      • Stephen: Pocher claims to be a German comedian but we all know there is no such thing.

      • Stephen: Hey cupid! Put on some damn pants! No one wants to see baby bits! This is the Colbert Report!
