"And then a woman from the other end of the restaurant runs over and she goes, 'I'm a nurse!' and starts knocking tables over."

"And then she gets to my mom and gives my mom the Heimlich," Jimmy continued. "And this lamb ball comes flying out of her mouth...and I looked at her and I go, 'Thank your for not embarrassing me.'" On her part, Tiffany shared a Christmas story from her childhood that took a dark turn.

"So we all went to bed and the next day, we wake up and there's a tree in the living room and there's toys everywhere," she explained. "And me and my sister are like, 'Oh my god, this is so cool!' And we-I got a bike...So, and then, like, a week later, we got an eviction notice. So, boo Christmas." (ANI)
