How do I combine 3 queries into one

I have three insert queries created:

$result = mysql_query("INSERT INTO item_cat_associations (item_id) SELECT stuff.item_id FROM stuff WHERE stuff.item_id = LAST_INSERT_ID()",$connect);

$result=mysql_query("INSERT INTO item_cat_associations(cat_id) VALUES ('$HTTP_POST_VARS[cat]')", $connect);

$result=mysql_query("INSERT INTO item_cat_associations(sub_id) SELECT subcategory.sub_id FROM subcategory WHERE subcategory.subcategory=('$HTTP_POST_VARS[subcat]')",$connect);

My problem is that , I think, because these are 3 queries, my data into my item_cat_associations table appears three times, so that I have 3 primary key ids for one result.

Can I combine these three queries into one so that I only get one result id?
