  • Quotes

    • Margaret: (of Michael) Design is more than shopping, and he's just shopping.

    • Carisa: (of her design) It's probably the least, like, "me" thing I've done. 'Cause it's sort of more natural, and I'm very plastic, and colorful, and artificial.

    • Todd: But keep in mind that, ultimately, it needs to be very high-end and luxurious.
      Goil: I'm a bowl of noodle kind of guy, so… this is very challenging to me.

    • Michael: The mystery judge could be maybe Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, or that Mario Batali, but who knows. Julia Child is dead, so we know it's not her.
