  • So I changed to a sweater, and then you changed to a sweater
  • also.
  • I know.
  • We always dress pretty much exactly alike.
  • Never those pants for me.
  • No, you're not going to wear a stripe?
  • No, I don't think so.
  • Really?
  • You could carry it off.
  • I'll take those.
  • OK.
  • All right, I'll give you these then.
  • Your birthday is coming up, when is it?
  • March 24th, you should know that.
  • I should, I know.
  • Somebody write that down for me.
  • And I'm going to get you my gift.
  • And it's going to come soon.
  • I can't wait.
  • You doing anything special for your birthday?
  • I don't know.
  • Well, I'm doing--
  • I'm on the new season of Star Trek.
  • And they're doing a panel at the Paley Center, I think.
  • Yes.
  • But I think that's really it.
  • That's not really--
  • No.
  • That's not a birthday-- that's just a thing you do anytime.
  • Well, yeah.
  • I mean not anytime, but it's not a birthday celebration.
  • No.
  • Stephanie must be doing something for you.
  • No.
  • And the babies have never--
  • she's probably getting me something.
  • Yeah.
  • The babies, I realized this year that they've never
  • gotten me anything.
  • Wow, and they're three already, and they still
  • haven't gotten you anything.
  • They're not-- they'll be three in June.
  • Aw.
  • They're precious.
  • They're really cute.
  • Max and Finn.
  • There they are?
  • Which is the one I like best?
  • I'm not answering that.
  • I forgot.
  • There's one of them--
  • That's a terrible question.
  • Yeah, I forgot-- because now they look different.
  • So I don't remember.
  • Yeah.
  • They change all the time.
  • They're both lovable.
  • Yeah, they're both adorable.
  • Well, wait--
  • Actually, Stephanie got me-- something came to the house.
  • And I got it.
  • And I think it's for me.
  • Because Stephanie was like don't open this.
  • And then I was like, oh, I think this is mine.
  • Is it a wrapped gift?
  • It's a box that came in the mail.
  • And then I was carrying it upstairs.
  • And she was like, please don't look at it.
  • And I was like, OK, if this is for me,
  • I wonder what she thought I needed that weighed this much.
  • It was like backbreaking heavy.
  • Well, not if you can just hold it on the sides.
  • It can't be that heavy.
  • If it's heavy, it seems like you have to do that.
  • So when you describe holding a box like that--
  • Well, this isn't actual footage of when I was carrying it.
  • Oh.
  • That's just me doing an act out.
  • Oh, OK.
  • Yeah.
  • All right.
  • I was like this.
  • I see, I see.
  • That's an act out.
  • That to me, would-- then I would have--
  • This is actual footage.
  • That is.
  • Yes.
  • Then I would have known it was heavy.
  • And I was like, what do I need that is this heavy.
  • You see, that's when you tell the story, next time, that way.
  • And so--
  • What are you, my comedy coach?
  • Did you--
  • Do you want to guess what's in the box?
  • Well, I would like to, but I can't--
  • I'd need to see it.
  • Well, it's a box and it's that heavy.
  • This heavy.
  • Yes, this heavy.
  • So what-- what is that?
  • 40 pounds?
  • No, I'm stronger than that.
  • I don't know.
  • It's 45 pounds.
  • I weighed it.
  • I think it's a bowling ball.
  • A flat bowling ball.
  • Well, you didn't tell me what the shape of the box is.
  • How can I guess.
  • If it was a ball, I would have been like this.
  • Well, it doesn't have to be wrapped like a ball.
  • It could be in a square box.
  • Bowling balls come completely wrapped.
  • I didn't know that.
  • Yeah.
  • [INAUDIBLE] wrapping.
  • All right, well, if it is, then you haven't guessed it,
  • then there's a problem with you.
  • And there was actually a rope attached to the ball,
  • and I was going up the stairs.
  • And this big heavy ball was behind me.
  • You changed it.
  • Because you were holding it like this a minute ago.
  • You can't do the story--
  • I was carrying it like this from the mailbox.
  • And then when I had to go up the stairs--
  • I see.
  • I pulled the rope out.
  • I like this part of it.
  • That's really good too.
  • So Max and Finn, let's get back to them.
  • They're adorable.
  • And they're almost three.
  • And I assume they sleep through the night at three.
  • They do now.
  • There was this-- and they did even when they were little.
  • And then there was this terrible phase that they went through.
  • I think I was working on your special
  • when this was happening.
  • They were getting-- they thought 3:00 in the morning
  • was-- they were like, time to get up.
  • And they would just start their day.
  • And our wind-- oh, this is a different day.
  • This is when they woke us up with tambourines.
  • And I knew we had one tambourine.
  • I had no idea we had two.
  • And I told-- and I told Steph--
  • How?
  • What is wrong with you two that you allow that?
  • I told Stephanie that it seemed like we
  • were in a really hacky sitcom.
  • Yeah.
  • When the babies came walking in with tambourines.
  • Yeah.
  • Yes.
  • That's insane that they wake up at 3:00 AM.
  • They don't anymore, but when they did, like I said,
  • we'd go downstairs, and they'd run around the couch,
  • blaring the music.
  • And our windows are set up in a way
  • where you can't see too low.
  • So if anybody was walking by our house at 3:00 in the morning,
  • they would just see me and Stephanie running around
  • the couch to music blaring.
  • But the leaders of the parade are, you know, this tall.
  • That's hilarious.
  • Yeah.
  • That's hilarious.
  • And they love to chase garbage trucks too.
  • Yeah.
  • They've moved on to firetrucks.
  • Oh, OK, good, that's better than garbage trucks.
  • Yeah.
  • Tig mentioned that she was working on--
  • Tig directed my special, Relatable.
  • She directed--
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • All right, well, you we're here to talk about Instant Family,
  • which now we're out of time.
  • But it's out on Blu-ray and DVD.
  • And it was Mark Wahlberg, who is lovely to work with.
  • And Octavia Spencer.
  • And Octavia Spencer.
  • Rose Byrne.
  • Yeah, Rose Byrne.
  • Other people too.
  • And some other people.
  • So do I say anything about it?
  • No, we've done it.
  • Well, I have more to say.
  • All right.
  • And you're not going to cut me off there.
  • All right, go ahead.
  • Well, we don't have time.
  • We don't.
  • All right, we'll be right back.
