MythBusters (TV Series 2003– ) Poster

(2003– )

Adam Savage: Himself - Host



  • Adam : I reject your reality, and substitute my own.

  • Adam : I think this is the strangest position I've ever been in on this show.

    Kari : [quietly]  Notice how he qualifies it with "on this show".

  • [discussing the lethality of paper-mache arrows] 

    Adam : Just thinkin' this one through from a mechanical standpoint... I'd be totally pleased with two inches of penetration.

    Jamie : Generally, I prefer a little bit more.

  • Jamie : [Jamie is holding a duck]  Quack, damn you!

    Adam : He looks like he's trying to collect a loan from the duck. Duck loan collection agency!

    [in a mobster accent] 

    Adam : We want to talk to you about some outstanding feed!

  • Scottie : Maybe it's a myth that methane is flammable.

    Adam : It's not a myth. We're just idiots.

  • Jamie : Adam doesn't know it yet but he's digging his own grave.

    Adam : What's that?

    Jamie : What?... Nothing!

  • Adam : [Holds a weather balloon]  For science!

    [Releases the weather balloon and it floats away] 

    Jamie : [Points to the weather balloon]  It's going that way!

    [Adam laughs] 

    Adam : You're a budding meteorologist Jamie!

    [Jamie laughs] 

  • Adam : When a cameraman gives you a pat on the shoulder it must be really bad.

  • Adam : If I had any dignity, that would have been humiliating

  • Adam : Well, hopefully that's our job, to strap rockets onto everything!

  • Adam : [holding a floatation barrel]  The only thing we're told we can't do is burn them, blow them up, or lose them!

    Salvatore : Has he watched the show?

  • Adam : Am I missing an eyebrow?

  • Adam : [operating shark-punching Buster]  Oh, my God! This is more fun than should be allowed.

  • Adam : How hard can it be to blow up a room full of gasoline?

  • Adam : [Drops a pastrami sandwich on the floor and picks it up again]  Whoop, I picked it up after like three seconds, would you eat it?

    Jamie : I wouldn't eat it just because you've handled it.

  • Adam : We got a robot in the water, he's stuffed with tuna and it's just another day here at Mythbusters.

  • Adam : Do you actually have moods?

    Jamie : No.

  • Jamie : I think this thing could hurt you. I think we're about to find out whether it will hurt you.

    Adam : All right, I'll go put on the suit.

    Narrator : What did I say about dressing up?

    Adam : [dancing in Redman suit]  Yeah! You can shake your booty in this!

  • Jamie : So what's in these things?

    Adam : Supposed to be vinegar and water.

    [takes a sip of feminine hygiene products and spits it out] 

    Adam : Yeah, tastes like vinegar and water.

    [starts laughing] 

    Adam : I just took a taste test.

    [continues laughing] 

  • Adam : This kills you!

    [points to a .30-06 bullet] 

    Adam : This kills you and everyone else in the room!

    [points to a .50cal bullet] 

  • Adam : [Christine and Tory tape pizza boxes to Adam's arms]  We're at the Icarus part of the evening. I think you know what happened to Icarus!

  • Adam : Remember, don't try this at home.

    Jamie : We're what you call "experts".

  • Kari : All right! Looks like it's time to pack Buster's bags for the Bahamas. What do you think he'd wear? Shorts or a little thong?

    Adam : I... I don't know if Buster has enough actual flesh down there for a thong, but a...

    Jamie : He's got no butt at all, in fact he doesn't even have any legs.

  • Adam : [pounding at Alcatraz raft loudly]  Wait, was that a guard?

    Adam : [Stays silent for a few seconds]  Nope!

    Adam : [Contiues pounding] 

  • Adam : [in cockney accent to a shotgun toting Jamie facing an oven door]  Alright Jamie, here's your motivation: This oven door has run off with your wife, so you decide to gear-up and get even.

  • Adam : Hell or high water we are gonna get him back out! We leave no man behind on MythBusters man!

  • Jamie : Good shot, Adam!

    Adam : Thank you, Uncle Jamie.

  • Adam : This is your head!

    [Touches ballistics gel] 

    Adam : This is your head with an axe in it! Are we clear?

  • Adam : [Holds up a pig's head in front of his face]  Jamie!

    Jamie : Yeah?

    Adam : Please don't fire bullets into my head!

    Jamie : Its only got one ear though.

    Adam : We don't need ears for testing lethality of bullets at terminal velocity man!

  • [repeated line] 

    Adam : Well, here's your problem.

  • Adam : [pours tomato juice over himself]  Wow, this is like performance art!

  • Adam : Hand me the Jack Russell terrier urine. That'll do it!

  • Jamie : Well, as the myth suggests, William Thomson, aka Lord Kelvin, did indeed live during the Civil War era but he never claimed to have made liquid oxygen.

    Adam : And we're supposed to believe someone who was called Thomson but went around saying he was Lord Kelvin? "That's Lord Kelvin to you."

  • Adam : [Fake arrow on his head]  Coming up, could a ninja snatch an arrow out of the air?

    Jamie : Sorry about that, man.

    Adam : That's okay.

  • Adam : [wearing a pilot's helmet]  Pilot to bombardier, pilot to bombardier, do you read, over?

  • Adam : [holds a duck to the camera]  Do you have anything to say to the ducks back home?

  • Adam : I wouldn't say Jamie's an evil genius.

  • Adam : [sits on his hovercraft with pizza boxes taped to his arms]  I think we may have something here!

  • Adam : [Adam laughs]  We're escaping Alcatraz in Mach 1!

    Jamie : No wonder they couldn't find them. They're probably in Japan by now.

  • Adam : [covered in tomato juice]  I think it's working!

  • Adam : How many of me can you stand?

  • Adam : [sticks on a Shock Watch sticker]  This is the source of all my special powers!

  • Jamie : And that was the end of Adam's Television career.

    Adam : No!

    [punches Jamie in the arm] 

  • Adam : Turkey master, I hand you your bird!

  • Adam : [Jamie pours gas into the pickup, Adam whistles]  You really had to go.

  • Adam : [while trying to calculate how many pingpong balls it takes to cancel out one pound]  Oh no, oh crap.

    Jamie : That's great Adam. I'll see you later.

    [Starts walking away] 

    Jamie : Let me know when you get that all worked out.

  • Adam : Jamie, marinade!

  • Adam : I'm not doing anything the Pakish wouldn't have done if they'd had a chainsaw.
