Craig: A great day for most Americans but not a great day for Miss California. Who was fired. Pageant organizers felt that she'd best represent the state of California if she was in fact unemployed.
Craig: It's a terrible shame and I'm very worried that. I just hope, I hope with all my heart that California can find another dumb blonde with fake boobs.
Craig: (talking about Top Chef Masters) It's like Project Runway but for people who liked to eat.
Craig: Were I grew up at the cooking wasn't great in Scotland. In Scotland gravel is considered a condiment.
Craig: Do you think it was important for Obama to pick a women to replace Justice (David) Sutter?
Tim Meadows: Absolutely Craig. It's goodbye Justice Sutter, hello Justice Hooters.
Craig: So what you're saying is you think it's important to have both genders represented in the Supreme Court?
Tim Meadows: Well it doesn't really matter to me, Craig. Men, women, we all look the same when we're naked.
Craig: Actually Tim that's not true. Men have a penis and women do not.
Tim Meadows: Oh god I think I been going to the wrong Hooters.
Craig: And where did you say that Hooters was?
Tim Meadows: Why would I know about affirmative action cause I'm black? That is racist, this is a racist show and you are a racist maniac. I got my job the same way you did Craig, by having sex with the President of CBS.
