David Cook: You know, everybody's got an opinion, and tonight was Archuleta's night. I have to concede it: The kid came out all three songs and nailed it. But I walk away from this with my head held high.

I started this season — much to Simon’s chagrin — as the word nerd and I’m absolutely at a loss for words. Thank you guys. This is amazing. Thank you.

David Cook: For me it just made the whole experience full circle. In August I stood in line in Omaha, Nebraska, at 5:30 in the morning when it was raining -- with no intention of auditioning. And now I'm here, and I got to share that moment with the same two people I stood in line with seven, eight months ago.

David Cook [to Kimberly Caldwell]

Whenever I feel like I need to get my ego in check, I'll call my family.
