‘Dance Moms’: The Most Ridiculous Quotes From the Season Premiere
Abby Lee's reign of terror continues on Season 2 of 'Dance Moms' (Scott Gries/Lifetime)
"Everyone wants to see them fail."
—Abby, on the girls. She uttered this sentiment many times in different ways, but we're still not convinced that being in a no-name singer's music video would prompt extreme competition from children and dance teachers throughout the country. Really, this line -- especially backed by Jill's comments about avoiding Abby Lee Dance Studio because of the terrible (and accurate) things she had heard about Abby -- made us feel really bad for the girls. If any of them dances through her adulthood, it'll be a miracle.
Watch the "Dance Moms" season premiere in full right here:
"You're not six and under. You're seven and over."
—Abby, to Mackenzie, during practice for their "hot, high-energy jazz routine." In case it's not obvious, this was meant as a serious threat. Later, this quote was countered by the adorable and excited Mackenize, who told cameras, "For this number, I'm stuck in a box and I can't get out."
"Your mother could care less about you winning a title."
—Abby, manipulating Nia about her mother, Holly. We love Abby-Holly drama, as it usually is filled with the most insanity.
"My dad even took me to the mother-daughter talk about having your period."
—Abby, in an ultimate TMI moment, to Holly, while telling her what a terrible person she was for being a working mom. Abby also later screamed, "I had a mother and a father, and if they looked at me one time, I knew. One look!" to Kelly, a nonsensical threat about discipline that we still don't entirely understand.
