  • - And it instantly made me vomit.

  • - He thought he had appendicitis and we were at the hospital for four hours.

  • But he really was just constipated.

  • Yeah.

  • (laughs)

  • - [Off-Camera] How do you feel about Valentine's Day?

  • - Oh, don't get me started on that.

  • - It's overrated.

  • - Kind of overrated.

  • - I don't really care.

  • I can show someone I love them every day.

  • - I miss the old days of elementary school.

  • - And then everybody would get Valentine's cards.

  • - There was this guy that I had a crush on that I paid strict attention to what card he had given me--
