COMMERCIAL BREAK TO CHANGE A DIAPER. (Yes, I said diaper. Apparently she was only a prodigy for a day. Well, she told me she needed to go, we were just in the middle of taping an episode! We couldn't take it anymore because that did not smell like oatmeal drinks, mussels, or anything else we were "cooking" y'all.)
