"My life's just gonna get better and better after this!"
"I hope NBC thinks of me when they start casting 'Small Wonder 2.o'!"
"This'll be a great way of making friends!"
"If I keep smiling, maybe Mommy and Daddy won't fight so much!"
"I bet I'll live forever!" (Okay, that one stolen from McSweeney's - don't care.)
"Gee, d'ya think they like me back home?"
"It's awfully hard to breathe in this leotard!"
"Puberty? What's that? Sounds fun!"
"I'm cute, but puppies are cuter!"
