"I want the world
I want the whole world
Presents and prizes and sweets and surprises
Of all shapes and sizes
Don't care how, I want it
Don't care how, I want it no-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ow!"

"Teenagers really have it the worst and rich, famous teenagers have it worser than worse, because they’re used to hearing 'yes' most of the time, but every now and again some evil torturer has to tell them 'no' and being told 'no' when you’re a famous teenager is worse than getting shot at during war."
"Let's face it: If you're walking around with a $100,000 iPod Shuffle case, you're doing that so poor people hate you. Get the same effect for a fraction of the cost by jamming this diamond-studded pacifier in your infant's mouth. It's the fastest way to tell nearby child psychologists that your baby will have a sex tape by the time it's 18 months old."
"The episode left out some deeply uncomfortable spats between Mama June and Alana. You see it a bit in the broadcast, but Mama June was continually either answering questions on behalf of Boo Boo or mumbling answers to her. The quick wit we've come to expect from Honey Boo Boo was nowhere to be seen, but instead it was fed to her by her pageant mom...the most notable moment to be left out of Honey Boo Boo’s appearance on
The Tonight Show was when she became so fed up that she actually struck Mama June. Up until this point,
[Jimmy] Fallon had been doing a great job of navigating Alana’s weird behavior, but it was at this moment when he became positively awesome. 'NEVER hit your mother!' he exclaimed, in a voice that was serious with just a hint of a joke, and the studio audience erupted in applause."
