  • Quotes

    • (Discussing Adam's Iron Chef dish.)
      Michael Symon: I spit the crêpe out after I put it in my mouth.
      Adam: Really. Amazing.
      Michael Symon: No, it wasn't amazing at all; it was very bad.
      Susie: It was amazingly bad.

    • (After falling and having her sauce land on her)
      Lisa: I'm drenched in sauce. As upset as I am about the fact that I might've ruined my Pucci shoes and my $300 shirt, all I care about is putting out my food. No matter what happens, that's all I care about doing.

    • (Watching Nipa struggle to pick up her fish)
      Adam: I would think you're probably gonna have to touch some fish as a Food Network star.

    • Lisa: I'm having a hard time, because now it's getting down to who can not only have skill, but be an entertainer.
