Emeril: Can you hand me that pan?

Rachel: This pot?

Emeril: No, that pan over there. I need to pan-fry these vegetables.

Rachel: Wouldn’t be healthier if we steamed the vegetables or grilled them?

Emeril: Maybe, but for this meal, I’m frying them in this pan.

Rachel: Okay, do you want me to heat this sauce in this saucepan?

Emeril: No, I’m going to microwave that right before I serve it.

Rachel: Have you considered simmering it in a saucepan to get a better consistency?

Emeril: We don’t have time for that. Slice this meat and marinade it before I broil it.

Rachel: Maybe we could bake it at a lower temperature so that the meat won’t get dried out.

Emeril: We’ll try that another time. Can you get that cutting board and chop these carrots and dice these onions?

Rachel: Sure, but don’t you think...?

Emeril: What I think is that there will be six hungry children coming through that door in an hour and I need to finish dinner. You’re here to help, right?

Rachel: Yes, of course. That’s exactly what I was trying to do.
