You've got it the wrong way around! The phrase that you need to trademark is "HBO are lovely people" as then no one, not even HBO can ever use the phrase again, without your permission.
Another good choice would be "HBO are not criminals" - you can then prevent HBO from defending themselves publicly should, heaven forbid, they ever be accused of a crime.
