    • QUOTES (6)

      • Lauren: Palwasha, I could totally use a night out.
        Palwasha: Oh, me too. Khalida, you totally have to come.
        Khalida: As if. Women are not allowed out in public without a related male companion. We'll get our heads chopped off.
        Palwasha: Oh, decapitation is so much drama.
        Lauren: Whatev. I wouldn't know what to wear anyway.

      • Barbara Walters: (introduction) We start with Nick Cannon. I don't know who he is. I sat down with him and singer Mariah Carey in the home they share on the island that she owns.
        (interview) So, Mariah Carey.
        Mariah Carey: Yeah.
        Barbara: And Nick Carey.
        Nick Cannon: It's Nick Cannon.
        Barbara: Hmm, I don't know who you are.
        Nick: Oh, well, I have a few credits. Maybe you saw Drumline or Love Don't Cost a Thing?
        Barbara: No, I... I don't see black movies. I find them too violent. Except for Tyler Perry. Sheri Shepherd got me into him and I think he's just wonderful.
        Mariah: I do, too.
        Barbara: So, Mariah Carey, you're married to music exec Tommy Mottola.
        Mariah: No, I'm married to Nick.
        Barbara: Who's Nick?
        Nick: I am.
        Barbara: (to Nick) Why did you hit Rihanna?

      • "The Caves" theme song (to the tune of Natasha Bedingfield's "Unwritten"):
        Shrapnel and bombs rain down on us
        No one left is here to protect us
        Only here are the Taliban
        We need your help
        We need your help
        What happened to the Americans?
        We hide ourselves from the bombs exploding
        Save our lives by keeping quiet
        After all these years since the war began
        The mission remains unfinished

      • Lindsay Lohan: I'm completely sober, officer. I swear, I would never drink and drive.
        Liza Minelli: She'd be afraid she'd spill any. (laughs heartily)
        Dudley Moore was such a talent.

      • Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan: Tyler Perry and Mandongo were next to arrive, although, apparently, Tyler had changed into his "Madea" costume on the plane.
        Tyler Perry: As a heterosexual Christan man, I feel even more heterosexual wearing this bra and heels.
        Mandongo: Bitch looks good.

      • Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan: ...And finally, Richard Simmons was bringing up the rear. And he was also in last place.
