I go home at the end of the day and I rarely talk about what I did that day. So my wife’s experience is just like that of anybody else whose husband goes away to a blue collar job and comes home bruised and dirty and often proud of the work that they’re doing.

I just had one of those ‘what the hell are we doing’ moments.

I would have to say that looked like it hurt.

I wouldn’t say jamie is an evil genius. I’m not sure he’s evil and I’m not sure he’s a genius.

Jamie doesn’t like to do anything hastily, and I like to do everything incredibly hastily. So therein you have the dichotomy of our patterns.
Adam Savage

Jamie’s gonna go take a break now, and i am going to continue the on-going process of making a fool of myself and go ahead and try it myself.
Adam Savage

Let’s blow some stuff up.
Adam Savage

Let’s get on our knees and pray. I don’t know to whom. Is there a patron saint of ballistics gel?
Adam Savage

My advice is keep your lips away from the spinning things.

My dignity and good television – they’ll never meet.
