The quotables poured forth like good red wine on tonight's "Dancing with the Stars" premiere, so much so that I just had to reminisce:
Erin Andrews to Maksim Chmerkovskiy, upon meeting him for the first time: " I asked for Tony [Dovolani]."
Buzz Aldrin, describing his thoughts upon meeting his partner Ashley Costa for the first time: "This is a really cute babe."
Nicole ("Pussycat Doll") Scherzinger describing her amazement at the difference between her style of dancing and ballroom dance: "It's a far cry from chest pumps and booty dips."
Host Tom Bergeron, waxing poetically about Edyta's, fringe-festooned costume, or, uhm, the usual lack of fabric: "We're one gust of wind away from an FCC fine."
Len Goodman to Aiden Turner who pretty much stood around while Edyta danced around him: "You were just standing their shaking your wobbly bits." (Oh those wacky Brits!)
Tom Bergeron to judge Len Goodman, following the head judge's harsh criticism of Buzz Aldrin's cha cha: "How's that British space program?"
Bruno Tonioli to Kate Gosselin and Tony Dovolani after their less-than perfect Viennese waltz: "It looked like Tony was pushing a shopping cart around out there."
