Anthony is off to Costa Rica to help out the Hotel Iguanazul on western coast. It has 22 rooms and a great location, but it is ready to close. A guest, Joyce, has called in Anthony for once and he meets her at the hotel. When Anthony pulls into the parking lot, he finds garbage piled up at the front gate. A rusted set of washing and drying machines is nearby and there's more garbage everywhere. There's a "no smoking" sign on a piece of cheap paper tacked to the door...Read the full recap
Anthony: As soon as I drive in, what do I see? I hope I didn't have to travel all this way to tell someone to move the trash from their front gate. A 3-year-old could tell them that.
Anthony: It is windy. Can't you tell from my hair flying around?
Anthony: Costa Rica's supposed to be the fifth cleanest country in the world. So I guess they're keeping all the country's trash at this hotel.
Anthony: Guests come to Costa Rica to experience the natural beauty, not oxidizing metal.
Anthony: Eighty-seven percent of Americans look at their hotel rooms for cleanliness when they first checked in. How many do you think would stay if they find pillows like this? I say 0%.
Anthony: I think if you proposed to me right now, I'd marry you.
Dave McKague: Well, that's exciting.
Anthony: I have an aversion to filth, so let's get out of here.
Anthony: I love that color. Have you ever heard me say those words?
Blanche: No, that's true.
Anthony: I love that color.
Blanche: This may be a first.
Anthony: So, what did we do to solve the mold problem? And look at this pillow. Look at this. Look at this. There's no mold on that.
Blanche: I was thinking of putting the moldy ones back on, but I said, "I'd think Anthony would frown on that."
