Quotes: Extreme Omnivore
     Schlock Mercenary 

Tagon: Headcount! There were three goons! Three! Where's the third one?
Schlock: Yum?
Narrator: Food that talks is not food, but the goon never said anything, so it's okay, right?

Schlock: PX guy wanted proof I needed all that food. Went on a binge then an' there.
Legs: That's never made you sick before. How much did you eat?
Schlock: Four bottles.
Legs: That's not very
Schlock: ...of concentrated solvent.
Legs: Perhaps you need to be a little more discriminating when you binge.

Schlock: I'm an amorph. Dinner isn't coming back up unless it can fight its way back up. Smutto is just corn and soy, it'll stay down.
Ebbirnoth: It's not just corn and soy. It's also a bacteria colony fighting off a fungal infection. Smutto is a little of germ warfare disguised as a side dish.
Schlock: Okay, sure. But the last time I had to spit something out it was an infection of nanobots. The Smutto I dropped down the hole is way out of its league.
Ebbirnoth: You can eat anything, then?
Schlock: Amorphs are weird that way.

Kathryn: You eat your enemies as a fallback option?

Bunny: Sergeant, did you just drink medicine out of a bottle you found on the ground?
Schlock: Yes.
Bunny: I...I...
Bunny: Okay, I guess I can't see how that could possibly be more dangerous than swallowing two armed men whole. As you were.
Schlock: And you humans call yourselves omnivores.

Ebbirnoth: We need a word that means "omnivorous like a forest fire."
Schlock: When you find that word, I will eat it.

"Would it kill them to serve gemstones?"

"I watched Marco eat some of the popcorn. I did as he did... The texture was rough and strange. And the flavor! It reminded me of a food called pizza. But there was just a hint of cigarette butts, which I also enjoy. Although Prince Jake had told me never to eat cigarette butts again. They are bad for you."
Aximili-Esgarrouth-Isthill, Animorphs #8

Ike says he found your luggage in the lobby. And he would like to apologize for eating your pants.
— Professor Quadrangle, Quantum Conundrum

You're right, it does look delicious.
The Cannibal, Sword of the Stars II: Lords of Winter, when targeting an enemy, be it spacecraft or planet

"Yeah, that's real fine expensive gear you brought out here, Mr. Hooper. 'Course I don't know what that bastard shark's gonna do with it. Might eat it, I suppose. Seen one eat a rockin' chair one time."
Quint, Jaws
