The surefire signs Guy Fieri doesn't like a dish on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives

One of my favorite things about weekends is that Food Network plays Diners, Drive-ins and Dives for a majority of them. There is no Triple D marathon too long as far as I'm concerned.

Once you've watched enough episodes you start to pick up on some things, like Guy's various catchphrases ("Money!"), which cuisines he gets especially psyched for (the man loves his Chinese food) and the truly insane fact that he is a world-famous restaurateur and chef who hates eggs.

He's very obvious when he loves a restaurant and the dishes they're serving him, but a trained eye knows when he's not digging it at all. Because I think Guy is a genuinely good dude rooting for people to succeed he never outright says that he didn't enjoy their food or what adjustments could be made, rather he'll make general observations like "The cheese is melted" or "The toast has a good crunch."

It's the culinary equivalent of saying "Aw, so small!" when you are introduced to an ugly baby. It's so gentle and well-meaning and it's something that makes me appreciate Guy even more. Have you noticed he does this, too? What are some other things you've heard him say when it's clear he's not revisiting that place for a future episode?
