"I want the world
I want the whole world
Presents and prizes and sweets and surprises
Of all shapes and sizes
And
now!
Don't care how, I want it
now!
Don't care how, I want it no-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-ow!"
Veruca Salt, "I Want It Now", Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory

"No one says no to VERUCA SALT!!!"
Veruca Salt, 2013 and 2017 revivals of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Veruca Salt, the debutante
She's always screaming "I want! I want!"
We hope she wants last month's Chow Mein
As she jetés down the garbage drain!
Veruca Salt, the silly cow
Her maddening mantra was "Now! Now! Now!"
But now hang a bell on the little brute,
As she pas de bourreés down the Bad Nut chute!
Veruca's Nutcracker Sweet, 2013 revival of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

36? But last year, last year I had 37 presents!

Wait til my father hears about this.

As I was saying, I AM THE QUEEN!!!

An Acura cake?! But I wanted a Ferrari!

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.

Some child actors have it (Tommy Knight was exceptional from his first moment in The Sarah Jane Adventures and Lawrence Belcher hit all the right emotional notes in A Christmas Carol) and some don’t (Angie and Artie are to come) and it is pot luck choosing the right ones for particular parts. Unfortunately Jamie Oram is definitely a case of being very sweet but not being able to bring anything to the screen (compounded by this episode's Confidential that showed him boasting about how good he is compared to the adult performers but then we were all little tykes at that age, weren't we?)...George keeps repeating ‘please save me from the monsters’ like he is trying to memorise his times tables...

Luke Rattigan: You can't say "ATMOS System" 'cos it stands for Atmospheric Omission System. So you're saying "Atmospheric Omission System System". Do you see, Mr. Conditional Clause?
The Doctor: ...it's been a long time since someone said 'no' to you, hasn't it?
Luke Rattigan: I'm still right though!

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.

By now you've probably read this bonkers interview with Willow and Jaden Smith in which Jaden Smith says the existence of car accidents proves that driver's education is unnecessary (do not let this kid drive you anywhere). Willow and Jaden are both under 18 years old (Jaden's 16, she's 14), which means you can't really shit on them for being stupid kids who think they're smarter than everyone else. I was like that. That is standard teenage bloviating right there, and I get why it would be unfair to dump on those two for it.

But here's the thing: The average teenager has the good fortune to not display his formative idiocy in front of millions of people. You get to grow up and move past that. By allowing his kids (or shoving them into) the spotlight, Will Smith is basically inviting the world to hate his children....They're not gonna get a chance to grow out of this. They don't even go to fucking school. You're doomed if you don't go to school. You are frozen in your teenage shitheadery for life.

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.

"That must be the happiest kid in the world..."
Bart Simpson, The Simpsons, referring to Gavin in "Marge Be Not Proud".

"I like getting what I want, so I do whatever I need to get it."

You have seen, I'm certain, households among the wealthy where the smallest child of the family is the absolute master of the house, and the rest of the family are slaves to the brat's whims. In such households, you see men who regularly shake the pillars of the financial world forced to their hands and knees, babbling baby-talk and being ridden like beasts of burden. In such households, you find strong and beautiful women reduced to abject slavery and degradation by juvenile tyrants whose ice-cream is too runny or whose porridge is too hot for their delicate palates.

The Archivist: What confuses me is why did Boom-Sook Kim give you so much time to study? An xec heir, surely, was no covert abolitionist? What about his PHD xperiments on you?
Sonmi-451: Boom-Sook Kim cared not for xperiments, but for drinking, gambling, his crossbow. His father was an echelon xec at Kwangju Genomics; he was even lobbying for Juche boardsmanship until his son soiled the Kim family's market value.
The Archivist: Then how was Boom-Sook Kim planning to obtain his PHD?
Sonmi-451: By paying an academic agent to collate his paper from the agent's own sources; a beloved route to success for xec-stratum post-grads.
