“Are you cooking a frittata in a saucepan? What is this prison?”

What is the appropriate pan, Schmidt? I need to know before my dinner party.

Schmidt on books.

A peak at Schmidt's personal library.

Outliers — you should read it. Malcolm Gladwell. It’s one of my desert island books, along with Machiavelli’s The Prince, Freak by John Leguizamo, any of the scripts from the first season of Vampire Diaries.”

Schmidt on The Hobbit.

"There are plenty of things to be down about. Air pollution in China, the deficit, The Hobbit wasn’t very good. If I wanted to see dwarves in a real-time dinner scene, I would have gone to Koreatown.”

“Can you believe the zoo wouldn’t let me borrow their white tiger? I mean, the nerve! Philip Seymour Hoffman is going to be sitting at the back of the party thinking, ‘Look at that guy. He couldn’t even get a big cat.’

I've never been to a party without a tiger so I understand how he feels.
