  • And I was really excited, and the kids were so excited,

  • and they opened it up, and the first one I got

  • was for "Big Mouth." And we open it up --

  • -That's right. Your voice.

  • -Yeah, but I didn't know that it said

  • the name of the episode that you're on, on the Emmy.

  • So I was like, "I got an Emmy. It's got my name on it."

  • I was like, "Great."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -Kids, uh, yeah, hi.

  • [ Laughs ] Wow.

  • There's a conversation right there.

  • I wanted to ask you because, obviously,

  • I can't, like, look across the room at Quest and not --

  • It feels -- It feels right. -Do you have --

  • -A lot of Prince things happened in this building.

  • -Yes. That's correct. -Yeah.

  • Did you have Pearl when Prince was musical guest?

  • -You know what? I was on maternity leave actually when --

  • I didn't know when I was coming back,

  • but I was fully, like, brand-new baby.

  • I think she was about three months old.

  • And then I found out that Steve Martin was going to be the host

  • and Prince was going to be the musical guest.

  • And I was like, "I'm up."

  • -"I'm up." -Got on a plane.

  • -"I'm up!" -We brought Pearl.

  • Like, she was, like, still a loaf of bread.

  • She was so small. And we flew out here.

  • Brought my breast pump, like, brought, like, everything.

  • I mean, you know, when you have a brand-new baby,

  • it's very sexy.

  • -Wow. It sounds sexy, yeah. -Yeah. No, but it --

  • Yeah, brought everybody. It was really exciting.

  • -See Steve Martin and Prince. -Oh, my God. I mean.

  • That's like a Maya Rudolph --

  • Baby Maya dream sandwich.

  • -Do you ever get any memorabilia or any --

  • Do you have any Prince stuff? Or, like, a --

  • -I -- I am lucky enough

  • that, like, now it's known that I love Prince,

  • so, like, it's not a secret anymore.

  • Like, everybody knows. "Hey, you like Prince."

  • Like, okay, great.

  • And someone gave me -- A friend of mine gave me his belly chain.

  • I have his belly chain. -Wait. From the --

  • -From his belly.

  • -Yes, of course. That's where he wore it, around his belly.

  • -Yeah, you know, like, yeah --

  • In the "Mountains" video when he's got --

  • You know, when he's got the little pants and the thing.

  • -And the vest? Is that the vest look?

  • -Yeah, and, like, the little good --

  • It's, like, the bolero jacket -- -Yes, bolero jacket.

  • -And the hat. -Oh, no!

  • -The good meats right here. There's a little cutout.

  • And there's, like, a little gold. Yeah, that.

  • -You have that? -I have it.

  • And I wear it around my neck

  • 'cause it does not fit around my waist.

  • -I don't know whose waist it would fit.

  • I mean, Prince, I guess. -Just one person.

  • -Just one human being. That's wild.

  • -I take it and go like this. [ Smooching ]

  • Like, um...

  • -Yeah, Dad, no.

  • -I don't know how to do the splits.

  • Nor did I ever know how to do the splits.

  • Even when you're, like, a kid and you just, like, drop it.

  • -Yeah. -You know, kids are just like,

  • "Watch this. Boof."

  • -Yeah. -I was not that kid.
