Edgar Watson Howe

A boy doesn't have to go to war to be a hero; he can say he doesn't like pie when he sees there isn't enough to go around.

Farewell, 'King of the Hill' in Entertainment Weekly

Peggy Hill: Life is a lot like Frito pie. Better when shared with friends, and best with twice the cheese.

Note: What is Frito pie? you may be wondering if you're not from Texas ... Frito pie is not a traditional "pie" at all. It's a pile of Fritos, covered in chili and shredded cheese.

True Blood

Pie Shop Waitress (with a blank stare, after being asked about a missing server): No ma'am, no sir, I don't know any Cindy. But I can recommend the fried apple pie, the frozen Hawaiian pie, chocolate pecan pie, chess pie, seven-layer Jello pie --

Buster (out of nowhere): They have the peanut butter pie and the Spunky Hollow Honey Pineapple Pie, please Harley?

Sam: We will?

The Daily Show

Jon Stewart (to Mad Money host, Jim Cramer): This (rant at CNBC) was not, uh, directed at you per se ... I just want to let you know that. We threw some banana cream pies @ CNBC. You got a little -- obviously -- schmutz on your jacket from it. You took exception. And then, we decided to hit you with pie.

"My Migas" by Mary-Louise Parker, in Esquire magazine

Often the best time to make breakfast is the night before, while you are still drunk. Next time this happens, why not whip up a migas pie before passing out with your toothbrush clutched in your hand? ... (Instructions ensue). Cook the pie for 45 minutes at 375. While it cooks is an excellent time to drunk-dial. If you are rejected or you get voice mail too many times in a row, do a crossword to keep the mood light until the pie is ready. You didn't want to hang out anyway, and in the morning you'll have hearty goodness to eat with Coke Classic on ice.

The reference to pie is fleeting, yet still worth it. (And the video is only a minute and a half long).

30 Rock

Jenna (opening the mail of Liz's neighbor to see if he's dateable): He's a pediatrician, so you know he likes kids ... or feet? ... no kids. He has a bill from a divroce lawyer, so you know he's single. And he as a golf magazine, so you know he's not gay or poor.

Liz: Jenna! Come on.

Jenna: Now let's see what kinds of movies he likes ... (opening the neighbor's Netflix envelopes) Muppets Take Manhattan.

Liz (slightly approving): Hmm.

Jenna: Caddyshack.

Liz: (more approving): Hmm.

Jenna: And a documentary about how pies are made.

Liz: Hello, Dr. Baird!

Nate: We're going with a much bigger scam. One of the classics.

Parker: The London Spank?

Hardison: The Genevan Paso Doble?

Elliot: The Apple Pie?

(Everyone looks at him questioningly)

Elliot: It's like the Cherry Pie - but with lifeguards.

Sophie (appreciatively): Ooh.

Brennan: I call that a solipsistic perceptual response to the random nature of the universe.

When home ec class goes wrong ...

The Life Photo Archive is a searchable database of Life magazine's photo collection. Over at Cake Wrecks they had some awesome cake-themed historical photos. I wanted to share some of the pie fun with you.

Here, we see a young girl trying out the pie they created in class.

Hmm, pie!

Eww, pie!

January 1, 2009 - Happy New Year

Well, it's been a year of daily pie (except for that break during Hurricane Ike). Pie of the Day will continue to exist, but it will be on intermittent status from now on.

Before leaving, however, here's a snippet from one of the best pie-themed shows, Pushing Daisies, which will soon be no longer. Combining pie, knitting, mysteries, and featuring a good ol' Klein, Texas boy in the lead role, Pushing Daisies deserved to last a little longer.

So, here's Kristin Chenoweth singing Eternal Flame while wearing a pie hat:
