"On Saturday night, they called me and said, 'Pat we need 2,200 burgers...' In the middle of the night, I had to make those burgers and drive them over on Sunday morning." -- Pat LaFrieda Jr. on The Great GoogaMooga, The Morning After
"I think to take it to the next level it requires us finding people on the ground in Mexico to ship us stuff. There's a lot of spices and chiles that don't even necessarily travel within Mexico." -- Sam Richman on The Morning After
