If there’s one thing you can count on every episode of Dance Moms to deliver, it’s some level of ridiculousness on behalf of the show’s star and dance coach extraordinaire, Abby Lee Miller. She’s always been known for being over-the-top in terms of drama, rudeness, and attitude, and a clip from a recent episode of the Lifetime series shows her at her very best.
Let me set it up for you: Abby Lee Miller is at a dance competition because duh, that’s the whole point of the show.
She’s sitting in her motorized scooter scrolling through her phone during a performance when another mom in the audience approaches her to scold her for not paying attention/having bad “theater etiquette.” What happens next is pure gold.

Instead of telling the mom to get lost and totally losing her cool, Miller does something uncharacteristic: she remains silent. She puts her scooter into reverse and backs all the way out of the auditorium.
An unnamed woman asks her where she’s going and she claims she’s going to Baskin Robbins, but guess what, folks—she’s definitely not!
In fact, she’s going somewhere entirely different at breakneck speed, so much so that the Dance Moms producers can barely keep up with her, and when they finally do, they ask her what she’s up to.

Miller reveals that she’s trying to contact the police because how DARE someone “verbally assault” her at a dance competition by… tell her to put her phone away during a dance performance? She insists that she’s “putting a stop to this” by filing a police report against the woman.
I’m going to go ahead and guess that the police immediately ripped up the report and moved on to fighting actual crime, but you know what? I don’t even care. Frankly, I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen a better TV clip in my entire life.
