** Sig, Edgar, and Matt of the Northwestern just plain go all out, after a few discussions about whether they [[RougeAnglesOfSatin spelling "dessert/desert" and if its spelled chocolate mousse or moose]]. Tablecloth, candles (one of which used to hide a stain when they accidental spilled some dipping sauce), an actual menu(!), fancy presentation, an emphasis on fresh, local food that would make Creator/GordonRamsay proud. A Norwegian style fish and crab dinner, including cold crab dip (thanks to the fact that they're able to serve fresh King crab which hadn't been frozen as part of the shipping process to the rest of the world outside of Alaska), with Edgar acting as waiter and coatcheck (by taking Keith's coat and then just tossing it into a closed room connected to the galley. Keith is stuck between laughing and being extremely impressed at how far the Northwestern went.

** At the beginning of the 2011 Opilio season, ''Seabrooke'' captain Scott "Jr." Campbell and some of his crew decided it would be a good idea to [[GenericGraffiti tag]] the crane of the ''Time Bandit'' with a lightning bolt and his boat's initials. Andy and Jonathan retaliate by going out and purchasing over 1000 eggs and then calling in help from the ''Northwestern'' and the ''Ramblin' Rose''. The end result is a mass egging of the ''Seabrooke'' and her crew, proving once again that you Do Not Screw With the Hillstrand Brothers.

** At the beginning The night before opening day of the 2011 Opilio opilio season, the crew of the ''Seabrooke'' captain Scott "Jr." Campbell go out and some of his crew decided it would be a good idea to [[GenericGraffiti tag]] spray paint the crane of the ''Time Bandit'' with a lightning bolt and his boat's initials. Andy the ''Seabrooke'''s initials. Jonathan's response is to take a couple crew members to the grocery store and Jonathan retaliate by going out and purchasing buy over 1000 eggs eggs, and then calling to call in help from Sig and the ''Northwestern'' and (which had also been tagged by the ''Ramblin' Rose''. ''Seabrooke''). The end result is a mass egging two crews then proceed to egg the ever-loving shit out of the ''Seabrooke'' and her crew, proving once again that you Do Not Screw With crew. As Sig Hansen observed, "Don't mess with the Hillstrand Brothers.Hillstrands!"
*** Jonathan's reaction is almost immediate: "We need to buy every egg in town."


*** The Hillstrands finally got their revenge after the 2012 opilio season: on the day of Jake Anderson's wedding (at which [[CrowningMomentofHeartwarming Sig was officiating]]) they TP'ed Sig's house (Johnathan's excuse was that season was too stressful to think of something good). Watching Sig and (presumably) his wife trying to figure out who that weirdo was on their security cameras followed by Johnathan zooming off in his pickup was pretty amazing.

Added DiffLines:

* For 2018, during one episode of "The Bait" pre-show, the captains have a little cook-off between each boat, with Keith acting as judge. Reminder, this is the same Keith who used to previously work as a [[HiddenDepths saucier]] in a French-style restaurant prior to becoming a crab fisherman and latter captain. Some highlights:
** Josh Harris and Casey McManus (Cornelia Marie) makes a steak dinner. As Keith mentions he's going to take some notes about the meal, Casey pulls out some cash, suggesting Keith take some extra "notes".
** Jake Anderson and Ole Helgevold of the Saga decides to make steak stroganoff. Keith mentions in the studio segment that two had apparently been working on making the dish for over ''two-hours'' by the time he arrived there, and still hadn't finished the dish yet. To top it all off, he notes the canned corn on the counter top and mentions he's probably going to dock them several points for that, which Ole quickly opened threw it into a bowl, and microwaved it. Still, Keith gives the Saga Stroganoff high marks, including the corn.

Keith is stuck between laughing and being extremely impressed at how far the Northwestern went.
** During the judging itself, Jake and the Saga makes it to the final three still being considered, along with Wild Bill of the Summer Bay, and the Hansen brothers of the North Western. Jake's reaction and Keith's follow up is hysterical.
-->'''Jake:'''(pleasantly surprised, quietly) I'm still in? How the hell am I still in?\\
'''Keith:''' Congratulations, you're still in! [[MoodWhiplash Now get the hell out of here]]!\\
'''Jake:''' Oh...wait was it because of the canned corn?\\
'''Keith:''' Of course it was for the canned corn!\\
'''Jake:''' I thought you said you liked it!\\
'''Keith:''' Yes, but you opened it up right in front of me, you should never admit that your using canned corn to the judge!
* Another "The Bait" segment has the Captains receive cards with the name of another captain. They're tasked to do their best impersonation of whichever name is written on the cards, with everyone else at the table having to guess who they're mimicking. Keith does an exaggerated, slightly feminine hair brushing motion, which everyone immediately calls out as being Wild Bill, causing the table to break up into laughter except Bill who looks stone-faced about it. Jake's charade involves launching into an angry outburst, shouting for others to get things done, which immediately has every hand in the room pointing at Sig. Sig ends up [[ActuallyPrettyFunny laughing as much as everyone else at the table]].


* On ''TheTonightShow With Jay Leno'', Capt. Keith revealed that before he was a crab fisherman he was a ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saucier saucier]]'' at a French restaurant. Some weeks later Keith is shown making "dinner" for his crew: power bars and chips.

** While the Hilstrand crew celebrates the impending 2014 king crab season with an entire truckload of fireworks with Wild Bill in tow, the crew of the ''Northwestern'' steal Bill's boat and move it across the harbor. Bill was Not Amused.
*** Extras reveal that Bill's son Zach helped the ''Northwestern'' crew by showing them how to start it. Bill retaliated by making his son think the Coast Guard was after him.

* Being a skipper-in-training like Josh Harris is scary. Getting chewed out by Wild Bill is scary. Getting chewed out by Wild Bill (after admitting fault and apologizing!) over the radio with the "senior" captains listening is ''hilarious''.

* During some downtime aboard the ''Northwestern'' the deckhands are standing around talking, asking the "If you were any piece of equipment aboard the ship, what would you be" question. Matt cheerfully declares that he would be a shovel - then comes out with two shovels tied to his arms and another tied to his back, flapping his arms like wings. Jake Anderson declares that he has ''literally'' pissed himself laughing.

* Edgar asks the crew if they want Sig to throw the traditional flaming hook at the end of opies - and they say yes. Sig..Well.. To quote Jake Anderson, "You missed!You scream at us when we miss and look at you!".

* Once Sig Hansen gave his crew one hell of act of compassion that should put this page on the heartwarming section...he allowed his crew to sleep a full 45 more than was necessary. That's right the old sea dog let his crew sleep for 45 more minutes when they could be working. Instead of working he let them recharge their batteries. The moment the crew is out the door and onto the deck Sig starts snickering and sets the clock back forty five minutes. It's an old captain's trick.
