Arsenio Hall: ”I’ve talked with Richard Simmons about (that movie) Alive. He said one human butt cheek equals three red-meat cards on your Deal a Meal diet plan.”

Jay Leno: ”I wonder how they decided which of the passengers they were going to eat. I mean, did they sit around going, ‘Bill, what do you feel like tonight? We have Mexican. We have Japanese…”’
