1 "I wanted to become the Hamster because unfortunately, my body is shaped very much like a hamster. And also, I felt stuck in a wheel going around and round. I mean, who hasn't felt all cooped up the last year or so? But it has been difficult, because I'm kinda like a guy who's always jumping from one project to the next with my famous friends. I'm used to being in all kinds of arenas, and this last year has been tricky trying to keep momentum going. But now, I'm breaking routine so I can let out all that pent-up energy as the wildcard! I promise I'll be the teacher's pet."
3 "As you've probably guessed by now, I'm a bit of a party animal. And you should have seen me in my 20s. I was living in a huge city working with my best pals. The fun that we had when we were younger was the most fun ever. There's nothing like not being famous, and the next day being famous. And that's what happened to all of us. And the fact that we're still friends all these years later is phenomenal. They're really gonna get a kick out of me being here, you know? And I'll prove myself, and I'll make Nick even more uncomfortable. Ha-ha!"
5 "If I could go back in time, I'd go back to the night my wife and I went to an afterparty after a Luis Miguel concert. Everyone was there- Leonardo DiCaprio, Drew Barrymore, Jerry Seinfeld. "Who gets to have these parties"? But the only person who really impressed my wife was Luis Miguel. So when we spotted him at the party, she was ecstatic. I think that's the only time she's ever been impressed with anything I've ever done in my career. Tonight, my inner Luis Miguel will come out. In the romantic languages, there's nothing more romantic than a song in Spanish. And I'm nervous because my Spanish is horrible. I dedicate this to mi amor, mi corazón."
