Moe: Um…I mean, I guess seeing like new places ya know? Like getting to like explore new cities, its unfortunate cause like when we are on the road sometimes we like a little rushed to get from place to place and there isn’t that much time, but I always try to make time to do like one thing that’s unique in each place as possible.
Stephanie: Mmm-Hmm, okay, umm…you guys seem like you can be really silly and hyper at times. Which would you say is the jokester on set?
Moe: Umm…well I mean, I guess I am to some degree, but I think we all have our moments where like we just kind of go off you know?
Stephanie: Mmm-Hmm. what is it like finding out that there are so many people who talk about and admire you?
Moe: Umm..that…that was pretty like uh, pretty surprising to be totally honest! (laughs)
Stephanie: (laughs) I’m sure.
Moe: Umm…I gotta admit, I try not to read that much of it…just uh kind of for my own (laughs) personal sanity I guess, maybe, ya know? Just to kinda uh, keep my feet on the ground, but I mean like it’s really flattering of course.
