On the Jan. 27 episode of ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,’ the family looked back on some of the best moments of the show so far — reminding us why we fell in love with the crazy clan in the first place! Which moment is YOUR favorite?

AlanaHoney Boo BooThompson and her wild family relived the show’s major moments from the first season — from their language lessons to their secret family recipes! Check out our favorite highlights.

1. Learning Honey Boo Boo & Family’s Wild Vocabulary

The family gave us a linguistics lesson on their colorful language by reminding us that “vajiggle jaggle” means the excess skin and flab on people of a voluptuous size, and that Mama June Shannon only gets “beautimus” (dolled up to look pretty) when she feels like it — especially when she wants to look “smexy” for her man Sugar Bear!

2. Mama June Teaches Us To Cook Sketti

Alana teamed up with her mom to cook dinner for the family, this time an old family recipe for sketti — pasta with ketchup and melted butter. They call it a redneck version of spaghetti, but Sugar Bear calls it delicious!

3. Here Comes The Weight Loss Challenge

Mama June and all the girls decide they need to drop a few pounds to get healthy, especially since the family matriarch’s weight has gotten so big, it won’t even register on her bathroom scale. After the first week, Jessica “Chubbs” lost two pounds, but Lauryn “Pumpkin” gained four. Looks like they need to lay off the sketti!

4. The Art Of Passing Gass

Alana and family remind us that bodily functions in their household are louder, smellier and a lot more frequent. Mama June said it’s probably due to what they eat (read: a lot of empty calories), but that it’s “only rude when you get caught” passing gas in public. Try telling that to the poor production crew that is with them day and night!

5. Alana & Her BFF Glitzy The Pig

We got a loving look back on Glitzy, the pet pig the family only kept for a few weeks. Alana describes she fell in love with the little guy in the first place — he loves to dress up, and is a perfect pageant partner! “He’s going to be a little gay,” Alana reveals. It’s a shame he had to go so fast!

6. Alana’s Talking Tummy

When Alana competes in pageants, she’s not the only one who does all the talking — her belly chats up the judges too. Alana and her tummy talked to the cameras, like she does when she’s on stage. But when Mama June and her vajiggle jaggle try to speak up, everyone gets too grossed out to listen!

7. Anatomy Of Mama June

Mama June gave us the rundown of everything that makes her body a wonderland — her “forklift foot,” aka her feet that are black and blue from being run over by a forklift when she was younger, her neck crust (the residue found in the folds of her triple chin) and her biscuit. Biscuit means lady parts to Mama June, so I’m just going to go ahead and move on.

8. Bringing Home Baby Kaitlyn

When Alana’s sister AnnaChickadee” gave birth to her baby Kaitlyn, the family was so excited to meet her — and she greeted them with three thumbs up! That’s right, baby Kaitlyn was born with an extra appendage, which Mama June just called a special addition. Kaitlyn even joined in Aunt Alana’s footsteps by competing in a pageant at just a few months old!

9. Mama June Reveals Her Couponing Obsession

Mama June reminds everyone why she loves coupining in the first place — “it’s better than sex” — and even admits a dark secret from her past. One time she bought laundry detergent without a coupon, and it nearly killed her! Good thing she can shop for a big family on a budget, and have a never-ending supply of tolet paper.

10. Mama June & Sugar Bear: A Love Story

Mama June and her “shack ’em up mate” Sugar Bear have been together for more than eight years, and love to make their relationship “smexy” from time to time. Even though Sugar Bear says their relationship was love at first site, Mama June revealed the truth behind their romance — they met through an online chat room, and it was supposed to be a random hookup. “Bed at first sight,” not love. Eight years later, they are still going strong!

Check out the truth behind their relationship below!
