Kari Byron: I think the idea of talking to your plants is some foolish, hippy crystal gripping nonsense and it absolutely has no effect on your plants.
Adam Savage: [speaking of duct tape] Well, it’s like the Force. It’s got a light side and a dark side and it binds the whole universe together.
I won’t normally comment on politics. It’s just way too easy to offend just about everyone with a simple statement like “In my opinion, the President was wearing an ugly tie today.” Even though it’s my opinion, it just starts a flame war. I just agree that I disagree with people and leave it at that. I have my opinions on our government and I vote. I work for a local government and I am an elected official.
Adam Savage: The hard part about doing two is that once you finish one you’re only half way there.
When in doubt, C4.
–Jamie Hyneman, Various episodes
Adam Savage: [holding an original floatation barrel from the movie Jaws] The only thing we’re told we can’t do is burn them, blow them up, or lose them!
Salvatore “Tory” Belleci: Has he watched the show?
Jamie Hyneman: Good shot, Adam!
Adam Savage: Thank you, Uncle Jamie.
Adam Savage: [Fake arrow on his head] Coming up, could a ninja snatch an arrow out of the air?
Jamie Hyneman: Sorry about that, man.
Adam: That’s okay.
Scottie Chapman: Maybe it’s a myth that methane is flammable.
Adam Savage: It’s not a myth. We’re just idiots.
Salvatore “Tory” Belleci: [after frying balistics gel Ben Franklin] Well, we killed a dead president.
Grant Imahara: He was never president.
[Grant and Kari walk away, stifling giggles.]
Tory: He wasn’t President? Damn it.
