  • -You know, we haven't done an "Ask the Fallons" in a while.

  • This is where I grovel and beg my wife

  • to answer questions from our fans,

  • to ask questions about us or her or the kids

  • or life or anything, and so this is another...installment

  • of "Ask the Fallons."

  • Enjoy.

  • -♪ Ask the Fallons, Ask the Fallons

  • -All right. This is "Ask the Fallons."

  • Thank you so much for sending these questions in.

  • Are your glasses steaming up?

  • -Oh, my gosh. I was about to say.

  • I have not mastered the mask wearing

  • and glasses wearing. -I feel like broccoli right now.

  • -I feel like have to pick one or the other,

  • and it's going to be --

  • -Well, there's no one here, so we can...

  • -It's gonna be the mask. -Wow...

  • I'm gonna do this... -All right.

  • -...in case a quick... -I'm just gonna do like --

  • As fast as I can, put it on. -I know. There's no one here.

  • -All right. So far, so good. -Yeah. All right.

  • We have a bunch of questions,

  • great ones from people watching the show.

  • -We're back!

  • -Yeah. Did you ever think you'd be back doing it again?

  • -We didn't ever officially --

  • You never sort of told me I was out.

  • -No.

  • -I just sort of... took advantage...

  • -No, there is no out. You really did.

  • You didn't bring it up. -...of you not bringing it up.

  • -Someone asked a question I thought was very you.

  • But it's like, if you had two hours to craft,

  • alone time, just to yourself, what would you do?

  • What would you make? What would you be into right now?

  • -Ohh! That just is so foreign to me right this second --

  • two hours to myself to just craft.

  • I wouldn't go buy any -- Like, I would have to --

  • Always it's sort of, what do I have and what inspires me?

  • So I think I would --

  • -The twigs were the last one.

  • -Those -- That was probably what I was doing

  • when I had a little bit of --

  • a little time in between things, was

  • yarn-bombing twigs and branches.

  • -Yarn bombing... -We have so many.

  • -...is covering a branch with yarn.

  • -Yes. Just picking different yarns and stuff like that.

  • But almost the key is you kind of have to have, like,

  • recycled it or found it or found your mom's old bin of it

  • or something like that.

  • Does that work? Howard Stern would kill me.

  • He was in the car. -What do you mean?

  • -He gets so mad at people

  • not wearing masks when they're walking, but --

  • -Yeah, but he's -- -He was in the car, so, yeah.

  • -What if it was Howard in that car?

  • -[ Laughs ] -Does he drive a truck?

  • -He definitely drives. [ Laughs ]

  • -[ Laughs ] He drives a silver truck.

  • -Yes. -No.

  • If anyone comes by, any humans...

  • -Yeah. Okay. Humans. Fine. All right.

  • I used to paint belts.

  • I used to have strips of leather

  • and made belts and paint them.

  • And then random furniture.

  • -Howard! -[ Laughs ] Like stools.

  • That was Howard's truck.

  • -Stoo-- Anything wooden.

  • I would just strip it in cute little micro --

  • -Always? -A lot of times.

  • People who have known me for a long time will probably

  • unearth some weird thing in their garage.

  • -Here's one. -Okay.

  • -"You guys are so cute.

  • What's your secret for keeping your marriage strong?"

  • -Aww. -That's very nice.

  • She's cute. -He's cute.

  • -What's your advice for keeping the marriage strong?

  • -I mean -- I think --

  • One of the essentials is --

  • Which is hard, because timing is critical.

  • But sometimes your timing is, "I'm ready to get going,"

  • and you don't really meet the right person.

  • But I do think meeting the right person who you --

  • Um, it's not even like --

  • It's so -- It's almost --

  • My answer's almost unromantic,

  • but I don't mean it to be unromantic.

  • But all of those, like, crazy, googly notes

  • and exciting and the "bad boy" all that kind of stuff,

  • it does not pay off in the long term.

  • And I know you won't trust me, because I didn't trust anyone

  • who told me that, either, but it's very true.

  • And so you really want to pick someone

  • who you don't have to like every single thing the same,

  • but you kind of have to have the same values, in a way.

  • I guess "values" would be the best word.

  • But you have to sort of -- What makes you both laugh,

  • you know, would be a good --

  • It's fun, because then you laugh together at the same stuff.

  • One of you is not, like, ugh, eyerolling

  • and the other one is, like, falling down laughing.

  • -Yeah. -So I think the things

  • that matter a lot to you,

  • I wouldn't compromise a lot

  • on someone who is the opposite of that.

  • Because it's just a struggle after a while.

  • And dating is so cute, and everyone's like,

  • "I'll do anything! Oh my God! I love mayonnaise!"

  • You know. I'm sure you would have eaten mayonnaise for me.

  • Look at his face. Let's just pretend he would have.

  • But now it can't even be in the house.

  • -It can totally be in the house.

  • -No. Nobody in our home eats mayonnaise.

  • -If it goes missing... -It was just an example...

  • -...not my problem. -...of when you're dating

  • you'll do anything for that person.

  • And then as you really are together and come together,

  • just those sort of -- You hopefully get more real.

  • And within more real, you of course

  • don't want mayonnaise anywhere near you,

  • and so those truths come out.

  • And they can really pull the rug out from under people,

  • depending on what they are.

  • -Is this like when people start looking and like each other?

  • -Ohh. Hmm.

  • -Do you think we're gonna start...

  • -I hope so. -Me too.

  • -You're cute.

  • So that I think is a big one. -Honesty.

  • -Honesty, but also just really have your list of things

  • that really you can't tolerate, or must tolerate,

  • and make sure they just line up enough

  • that they're not, like, opposing the other person.

  • And I think keep your sense of humor.

  • And I think keep some independence. You're just --

  • Neither of you should be so reliant on the other.

  • -I should just walk away.

  • -Oh, my God. Anyway, sorry.

  • [ Both laugh ]

  • And now for Jimmy Fallon's...

  • -Wow! Unfortunately, we have to go to commercial.

-You know, we haven't done an "Ask the Fallons" in a while.
