- "I've only been doing drag for two years, but you wouldn't know that, because I'm an icon."
- "If you came to a Priyanka show, you would see, good hair, a really shiny costume, a lot of dancing, and I'd probably end up making out with you. I think that sounds like a good time, doesn't it?"

- "GO OFF, JIMBO! COME ON, JIMBO!"
- "Oooh, drip, drip, drip, motherfucker!"
- "The Toronto girls are dropping like flies! What's next? I'm gonna burn someone's wig."
- "Except for when Kyne left, I didn't care."
- "I'm sitting there, looking around, being like 'Oh, all these girls are gonna come up with funny answers, what am I gonna do?'"

- "Take her down. Take Jimbo down. Do you copy?"
- "Beyonce's in the building! Watch out!"
- "What's happening up in the room here? BoBo is dressing up like Lemon, Rita is dressing up like Jimbo, and then Jimbo is dressing her girl like Lady Gaga. Jimbo you don't look like Lady Gaga, you're a clown."

- "Am I a singer? Am I killing it?"
- "The 'your' was shambles, but she's getting there."
- "It's actually funny that I'm singing this all slow and sexy, because I'm actually making fun of myself."
- "If you can't make fun of yourself, how in the hell you gonna make fun of anyone else. Can I get an amen?"
- "Just be gay!"
- "That's gonna be my merch, isn't it? Shit. 'Just be gay!'"
