“I love helping out a friend. That's why I want to shout out my friend Brian Little and his podcast, your favorite blockhead.” – Mike

“The only reason Spirit Halloween can get away with what they do is because they're owned by Spencer's gifts.” – Torya

“I can be somewhat of a Grinch when I want to be. I can.” – Mike

“I'm just so tired of cleaning up the needles from their trees 24/7.” – Torya
