Pilot[edit]

[After being fooled by a trick with envelopes]
Penn: It's just silly, is that really supposed to fool us.[2]

Episode 1[3][edit]

[After a trick involving bags and a nail]
Penn: Magicians that do things that are truly dangerous are immoral, that's wrong to do, and I'm hoping that the producers would never allow this on this show and I believe they would not. That being said, we don't think there's any chance involved in this whatsoever.

[During a helium bag trick]
Penn: Are you OK in there, Teller?
Teller: (In a high pitched voice) Yes, I am Penn.
Penn: Now you've heard Teller speak on stage.
