"I have never been so nervous to interview someone. After all, I grew up with Oscar and everyone on Sesame Street, and they were all real to me. The cool thing was that the puppeteer was the original performer, so Oscar's voice and actions were exactly as I remembered them. He was so talented that after a few minutes, I forgot he was there and actually began to have a full conversations with Oscar himself; it was all very surreal!" —Steven Sabados

2. Funniest Fitness Moment: Goofy Gadgets

Chris pretending to be a marionette sent us all right over the edge." —domestic diva and associate producer, Sara Lynn Cauchon

3. Episode We're Most Proud of: Wedding Special

Season 4, Episode 129

From the beautiful cakes to the gorgeous vignettes to the fabulous bridal fashions, it truly was a magical day." —S&C production team
