Apropos to the bacon alarm clock, an unforgettable soliloquy:

“I enjoy having breakfast in bed. I like waking up to the smell of bacon, sue me. And since I don't have a butler, I have to do it myself. So, most nights before I go to bed, I will lay six strips of bacon out on my George Foreman grill. Then I go to sleep. When I wake up, I plug in the grill. I go back to sleep again. Then I wake up to the smell of crackling bacon. It is delicious, it's good for me; it's the perfect way to start the day.”
- Michael Scott, The Office (Season 2, The Injury)
