  • “PAstrami.  I like the way that sounds.  PAAAASTRAAAAAMEEEEEEEEE.”
  • (In FAO Schwarz candy section) “Look at that huge box of nerds!”
  • (To my then 2 year old nephew) “Martin, yellow’s not tasty.”
  • (On food) “Everything’s good out of a can.”
  • “Cheese is nature’s glue.”
  • (After picking some Skunk Cabbage) “You guys just don’t appreciate nature’s aromas.”
  • (After my wife Heather complained to a waiter about the background music in a Chinese restaurant) “The waiter was laughing out of fear.”
