WITH YOUR OLD CAR? – WE ACTUALLY DONATED IT
TO THE CHARITY, THE HOPES ON WHEELS CHARITY. – THAT’S AMAZING. YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO DO THAT.
– [speaking indistinctly] – I HEARD THAT. – WE WANTED TO FOLLOW
YOUR EXAMPLE, AND YOU HAVE GIVEN SO MUCH TO
SO MANY PEOPLE OVER THE YEARS, AND WE WERE DISCUSSING IT
ON THE WAY HOME. AND THERE WAS
NO OTHER ALTERNATIVE. WE HAD TO DONATE IT, I MEAN, BECAUSE WE WANT TO PAY IT
FORWARD. – YEAH. – AND, YOU KNOW,
YOU’RE SUCH A GREAT INSPIRATION TO EVERYBODY. I’M SHAKING. I’M LIKE–

WITH A CHILD. – GOOD FOR YOU.
WONDERFUL. – I WAS LAID OFF, SO I’M DESPERATELY LOOKING. – LOOKING FOR WORK.
– LOOKING FOR WORK. – I KIND OF KNEW THAT. I DON’T KNOW WHY I’M ASKING
THESE QUESTIONS BECAUSE SYDNEY,
YOUR BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER, YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT THIS,
BUT WE SPOKE TO HER. AND LET’S TAKE A LOOK
AT WHAT SHE SAID. – MY MOM IS THE DEFINITION
OF A SUPERHERO, AND SHE DOES EVERYTHING SHE CAN TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE
THE BEST LIFE POSSIBLE. IF I COULD BE HALF THE WOMAN
SHE IS, I MEAN, I’D BE SET FOREVER. BACK IN 2008,
BOTH MY PARENTS LOST THEIR JOBS, AND NO MATTER
WHAT THE SITUATION WAS, I NEVER SAW HER STRUGGLE. SHE ALWAYS HAD A SMILE
ON HER FACE, AND SHE WAS ALWAYS SAYING,
“TOMORROW’S GONNA BE BETTER.” AND THAT’S JUST SO GREAT TO KNOW THAT YOU HAVE SOMEONE
THAT STRONG. – [singing] COUNT ON ME
‘CAUSE I CAN COUNT ON YOU – ISN’T THAT SWEET
THAT SHE DID THAT? YOU’RE GONNA NEED MORE. YOU’RE GONNA NEED THAT
AND THAT. JUST PASS ONE DOWN TO SYDNEY. SYDNEY NEEDS ONE. LIAM NEEDS ONE. ALL RIGHT.
[speaking indistinctly] ALL RIGHT. AND SO WE DO KNOW THAT YOU’RE
STRUGGLING RIGHT NOW. WE KNEW THAT MARCUS
GOT LAID OFF, AND WE KNEW THAT YOUR HOME
HAS SOME ISSUES. WHAT’S GOING ON WITH YOUR HOUSE? – IT’S–IT’S OLD. [all laugh] – WELL, OLD HOUSES
CAN BE REALLY– I LIKE OLD HOUSES, BUT YOUR HOUSE HAS SOME ISSUES. – IT DOES, AND, YOU KNOW,
OTHER THINGS COME FIRST, LIKE FOOD ON THE TABLE AND, YOU KNOW,
GETTING KIDS THEIR CLOTHES AND THAT KIND OF THING, SO WE KIND OF PUT
THAT STUFF FIRST BEFORE GETTING ANYTHING DONE
ON THE HOUSE. – RIGHT. OKAY, YEAH. THAT’S–
WHAT’S HAPPENING THERE? IT’S– [laughter] – TRYING TO–
– WAS THAT A WILD NIGHT BEFORE? [laughter] ALL RIGHT, WELL, WE HAVE
TO TAKE A BREAK RIGHT NOW, BUT I REALLY– I CANNOT WAIT
TO SHARE WITH YOU WHAT I’M ABOUT TO SHARE
WITH YOU. IT’S GONNA BE MIND-BLOWING. ALL RIGHT, WE ARE BACK
WITH SUSIE AND HER FAMILY, AND HERE’S THE THING. WE HAVE BEEN TALKING WITH THIS COMPANY, GAF. THEY’RE NORTH AMERICA’S LARGEST

AT A HOUSE LIKE THAT, SO WE ARE GONNA CHANGE– THAT’S SOMEBODY’S BEDROOM. AND SO HERE’S WHAT IT
COULD POSSIBLY LOOK LIKE. – [singing]
