|3||"Like the comfort food I am, I've been a comforting part of your lives for decades. I've got plenty of seasoning, and I'm in a good place. But my routine can get a bit mild, so I'm here to bust out of the buffet, and spice things up. To enchiladas and beyond, here I go as fast as I can. I want to be the last mask standing. I just hope I don't fall apart out there. Time for Taco Wednesday."|
|4||"So here's the news update. I felt like I was cooking on that stage and loved breaking out of my shell. Time to celebrate making it to the playoffs. So first round of nachos on the house. You may think of me as a buttoned-up, mild type. But I actually used to be a bit of a hothead. Until I met the most stunning taco in the galaxy. My jaw dropped, my heart buzzed, and everything changed. She made me the man I am today, a softer taco filled with love and blessed with a rich career. I can't even believe it's real. So tonight, honey, this one's for you."|
|5||"So here's the deal, I'm loving this secret adventure. This week, while I'm guessing at my tank, they let me spill the beans to a famous friend full of enthusiasm, who you all know. So I'm out."
(Taco's Famous Friend): "How much do I love Taco? Well, I'm sticking my face in a lofting seafood platter for 'em. That's love. We have something extremely personal in common. We both help people when they get knocked down; when life hits them in low places. And we always find the humor in everything. It's all about the laughs, right? Taco and I share something else. We both love our children, our little shrimps. I'm sure they'd be just as proud as I am to see their role model, Papa Shrimp Taco, in the limelight doing what he does best, entertaining you, America. Cheers."
