Tom C: "We went from little prick to big in my mouth." And a wry eye-roll. Friend of Natalie's: "Yes, that's what usually happens!"
"Who's your dealer is and does he want more customers."-Natalie Portman:
" a perfectly prepared pana cotta should wobble like a woman's breast."- Jay Raynor
"We can serve monkey ass in empty clam shell and still win."-Fabio
Chrissy Cambra: “From what I remember, Stefan has an accent, he looks like a thumb, and he’s an evil villain.”
No, sweetie, you’re confusing him with Hosea Rosenberg, who won that season.
Kristin Kish: “Geoduck is great! Except it looks like a penis. A really big one.”
We’ve all been thinking it.
Carla Pellegrino: “I am a chef, but I am also a woman. When I’m cooking, I like to look good. I want to be a James Beard and I want to have a nice ass.”
We want to be James Beards, too! (We already have nice asses.)
Bart “The Belgian Knight” Vandaele: “I’m a Belgian native. Belgian food is amazing because we’ve been conquered so many times, and so we just keep all the best ingredients from everybody who conquered us. I mean, that’s a lot of them.”
A little European History with your Bravo drama, anyone?
Carla Pellegrino: “I can’t be running around like a stupid.”
We believe it was Jersey Shore’s Deena Cortese who coined the phrase “You’re being an annoying.” But she’s a native English speaker without excuses.
Eliza Gavin: “In the Top Chef kitchen, you can burn something and call it ‘Cajun,’ you can under-cook something and call it ‘mid-rare,’ but you cannot under-season. That’s the kiss of death.”
You can make boring, colorless, flavorless pudding for dessert and call it “panna cotta”!
Joshua Valentine, on alums rejoining the competition: “Fuck them! It’s our turn! None of them were able to seal the deal! I hate them all.”
Stefan Richter: “There’s not one person I’ve met who hasn’t said to me, ‘Hey, Stefan, you should have won.’ Of course I should have won.”
Who does sentiment this surprise? No one.
Gail Simmons: “The first thing to put in my mouth in Seattle? Not bad. …That came out wrong.”
She’s back, boys and girls.
Padma Laksmi: Josie, why do you think you’re here [in the bottom two]? Josie Smith-Malave: I think…possibly…something was…imperfect?
(Tom Colicchio’s eyes roll out of his head.)
Stefan Richter on being in front of the Judges’ Table: “It’s like you’re a zebra, you’re wounded, and you’re walking around Africa…This is nauseating. It’s like vomiting. It’s like giving birth.”
It's so unique. You can go everywhere in the world and never find a place like Berkeley. It's so special, so beautiful, so diverse. I love that it's different. I want to try new things. Isn't that what college is all about?
"You also got tricked into believing “The Time Warp” would be a major part of your college experience."
"You know exactly which people to avoid on Sproul."
"You have strong opinions about Blondies vs. Fat Slice, because you’ve drunkenly sampled both."
"you were willing to travel a bit to get to brunch at the Thai temple on Sunday morning."
"You’ve skipped class to browse at Amoeba or Rasputin."
After doing some research with my agent, we found out Klipsch was an official Colts partner, and they were based in Indianapolis, which only added to my esteem for the company. I also have a passion for design and technology that developed while I was at Stanford and appreciate the quality of Klipsch's speakers and headphones.
And I went off to Stanford, I was pretty young and pretty naive. And I had a professor I really loved, who was himself a lawyer.
The war project at Stanford was essentially completed, and I accepted an offer of an Assistant Professorship at the University of Minnesota, which had a good biochemistry department.
The key to making healthy decisions is to respect your future self. Honor him or her. Treat him or her like you would treat a friend or a loved one. A Stanford study showed that those who saw a photo of their future self made smarter financial decisions.
The Stanford prison experiment came out of class exercises in which I encouraged students to understand the dynamics of prison life.
I founded Atari in my garage in Santa Clara while at Stanford. When I was in school, I took a lot of business classes. I was really fascinated by economics. You end up having to be a marketeer, finance maven and a little bit of a technologist in order to get a business going.
Unicorns don't care if you believe in them any more than you care if they believe in you.
I'll Of all the legendary animals of art, folklore and literature, the Unicorn is the one with the greatest hold on our imaginations. Other fabulous beasts are clearly inventions, existing only in a mythical landscape of our own collective creation. But the Unicorn strikes us as more than imaginary. It seems possible, even probable...a creature so likely that it ought to exist
Like a lion, without fear of the howling pack; Like a gust of wind, ne'er trapped in a snare; Like a lotus blossom, ne'er sprinkled by water; Like me, like a unicorn, in solitude roam.
gentle zebras...for your steeds and fill the stable with every kind of unicorn.
If the unicorn does live among the snows held up forever on the line of the Equator then it is clear why the world should know so little about him.
"The unicorn", she said, "was a marvelous beast, shining with honor, wisdom and strength. Just to see him strengthened the soul."
“[The unicorn] sighed and plodded on, both amused and disappointed. It serves you right, she told herself. You know better than to expect a butterfly to know your name. All they know are songs and poetry, and anything else they hear. They mean well, but they can’t keep things straight. And why should they, they die so soon.”
You only had to see a unicorn lay open the side of a centaur once, the ribcage flashing white when the ripped skin flopped down, to swear a mighty oath never to fuck with or even look at another unicorn again. I'm putting down the hearts and fluffy clouds and backing away slowly. Don't want any trouble here. You can have all the rainbows.”
Always Be yourself unless your a unicorn then always be a unicorn
