”I never know how much to share about my children,” says morning talk-show host Kathie Lee Gifford. Well, after reading her latest book, Listen to My Heart, cowritten with her 4-year-old son, Cody, it seems that Gifford has already told way more than anyone really wants to know. Herewith, The Quotable Cody:

On aging: ”Daddy’s a zillion.”

On fine cuisine: ”Mom, do pirates eat their boogs?”

On what’s really important:”Pots and pans.”

On role models: ”Am I as bad as Dennis the Menace, or am I perfect?”

On family ties: ”Why do I love [my sister’s] little head so much?”

On romance: ”You can never have too many kisses.”

On the media: ”I told you [Mighty Morphin Power Rangers] is not violent. It’s hysterical.”

On the Third World: ”Mommy, I will share my grilled cheese with [starving Africans].”

On Mick Jagger and Keith Richards: ”I prayed for those guys with the horrible faces to have good hearts.”

On good hygiene: ”Somebody come and wipe my buns!”
