Patty Wilson, please tell us

what is your favorite hobby?

I like going to school

- and playing the violin.

- No. No.

Patty Wilson, please tell us

what is your favorite hobby?

I like helping the homeless.

Right. Great, great, great.

Ok, if anybody ever

asks you anything,

you always answer

with charity, Ok?

Homeless, pets,

old people, doesn't matter.

This is your pageant, honey.

You're going to take this one

I know it.

Thank you.

We are now

onto the interview portion

of our competition.

Our first contestant

is Taylor Rollins.

Taylor is 11 years old,

and says her favorite

animal is a kitten.

And her favorite color is pink.

Taylor, dear, what has been

the most proud moment

of your life?

Well, I'd have to say

that I was most proud

of myself when I volunteered

in a children's hospital

over the summer.

I felt very lucky

to be able to help kids

who weren't as

fortunate as I am.

Well, that is definitely

something to be proud of!

Thank you, Taylor.

That girl only stopped

peeing the bed

- like three months ago.

- Leanne!

And now...

Our next contestant,

Ms. Patty Wilson

my baby!

My baby!

Patty's from Austin.

Patty's favorite color is...

Gray?

Ok, Patty, your question is

what's the biggest challenge

facing young girls today?

Hmm.

Society's pressure

on girls to look perfect.

This emphasis on appearance

is linked to three most common

mental health problems

that we have today,

low self-esteem,

eating disorders,

and depression.

Ok, thank you, Patty.

Well, that's definitely

something to be proud of.

All right, then,

now, our next contestant,

what the heck was that?

And why would you

say that at pageant?

Well, it is true,

and I thought

the right thing to do

was to tell the truth.

Honey, the truth is relative.

The plain and simple truth

is really plain,

and it's never simple,

so remember that, Ok?

Well, I thought

you did a great job.

I'm very proud of

you, sweetheart.

Thanks, dad.

Me, too.

You were the best one out there.

You had it won, but you

took your eye off the prize.

You gotta keep your eye

on the prize, baby.

The prize is in

the eye of the beholder.

That is the spirit!

There we go.

If only we had more money,

you'd be training with somebody

from dare to dance

like Taylor's doing.

God, if you'd only got

that promotion, don.

Oh, sorry.

Stan Buford got it.

He's dating the boss's daughter,

so unless you want me

to start doing that...

Don't worry, daddy.

You'll get the next one.

Don't hold your breath, honey.

You know what they say,

the world would be

a much better place

if it were run by women,

and I think you could do it.

You're so talented.

You remind me of me

when I was little.

Only you're better.

The only way to make it

in this business, honey,

is to be a triple threat.

Look at Miley.

Great role model, mom.

Yeah, she's a triple threat.

She can sing, dance,

and take of all her clothes.

Well, she's got a great body.

She works very hard for that.

Why not show it off?

I wish I had done it.

I wish I had done

it when I was young.

I would have showed

it all off, now, in hindsight.

Doesn't Miley just go around

licking everything or...

Well, sometimes you

have to sacrifice, don.

Sometimes you have

to lick things.

Carrie Clark

took the stand today

in the federal trial

of Jakob Todd Mitchum.

He's the man who abducted her

and held her captive

nearly 10 years ago.

After only five hours

of deliberation,

the jury found Mitchum

guilty of kidnapping

and sex crimes against a minor.

Carrie arrived at the courthouse

with her parents,

Lou and Carolyn Clark,

who spoke to reporters

after the verdict.

We're just so happy that

this whole nightmare is over

and that Carrie is back

home with us again.

It's been such a

life-changing ordeal,

and I think writing this book,

carry me home:

The Carrie Clark story,

will be very cathartic for me.

All right, geez,

what a media whore.

I think she was just feeling

a sense of relief

from finally having

some good news, babe.

Whatever.

A look into the ongoing struggle

to keep Austin weird.

My-my ear piece's not working.

I can't hear anything.

All right, Patty,

it's time for bed.

Mom, I've almost got

this piece down.

- Come on.

- You see there's this part

- that keeps tripping me up.

- I know, I know.

But if I only practice

that section,

- the piece will be perfect.

- Time for bed.

I could kill your father

for giving you this thing.

Come on, time for bed. Jump in.

You know if you're going

to be up late practicing,

you should be practicing

your new choreography

for your jazz solo.

Mrs. Patterson says

I'm really good.

Says I can even do this

for the talent competition.

Oh, honey,

that's not gonna happen.

I love the way you play.

I'm so proud of you,

but trust me,

nobody's ever won

America's got talent

playing a fiddle.

It's not a fiddle.

It's a violin.

Ok, a violin.

I mean, maybe you get

to be a contestant,

but you don't get to win.

Dancing is fun.

- Mom.

- It's sassy.

People love it.

You still mad?

No. I'm over it now.

You looked amazing,

and before you gave

everyone a coronary,

you were doing real good.

Lay down. Get to bed, come on.

Mom, are you sure I can't go

to Rhonda's birthday party?

Rollerskating?

Oh, absolutely not, baby.

What if you got a nasty

bruise or you get hurt?
