and waffles? -Like you’re toasting them.
-It’s the same thing. -Okay, good. All right.
So this is — Finn is doing Toastin’ Waffles. Roots, can he get a beat? [ Up-tempo music plays ] [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ ♪♪ [ Cheers and applause ] [ Finale plays ]
Wow, fantastic. Very performance artist.
[ Laughs ] As he walked out…
-Whoo! -Very — That’s how you make
toast and waffles in the morning?
[ Laughter ] I just love that you — I like that you yawned,
climbed out of bed, and there was like two
thawed-out waffles on your… -There was two waffles.
-Already there. -“I put them out last night.”
-Did he toast them? I just saw him, like,
do the “Macarena.” -Yeah,
he was doing the “Macarena,” then he ate a sandwich.
[ Laughter ] All right, here we go.
It’s Gaten’s turn. Let’s start
the Dance Move Generator. [ Beeping ] -[ Speaking indistinctly ] [ Beeps ] -Flashlight

Everyone’s upping their game. Noah, try and top that.
-I’m worried. -Let’s start the Generator here. [ Beeping ]
-[ Speaking indistinctly ] [ Laughter ] -When do I press it?
-Whenever you’re ready. I mean, you can let this go
for 25 minutes if you want to. I mean,
it’s getting a little annoying. [ Beeping continues ] [ Beeps ] Trying To Fix An ’80s TV.
-’80s TV. -Do you know what a television
looked like in the ’80s? -Oh, no.
[ Laughter ] -[ Chuckles ]
This is so sad. -It was, like, boxy.
-Yeah, so, it was boxy, yeah. -You remember —
like, on set — on set. -It was a big box,
and it was, like, wooden, and it had two switches. -Yeah, exactly like that.
-It was wider than that. -Exactly like that.
-Like that. -To fix it,
you’d have to either bang on it or put a screwdriver in it…
-Okay. -…or something like that.
-Yeah. And they had channels
that you could turn, and that’s how you’d know
that it was broken. Okay.
-I — All right. -This is so sad.
I really feel old. [ Laughter ] Welcome back to Grandpa’s

  47. I’m honestly very concerned for Noah’s dance lmao

  48. That was classic, that was epic, that was 80's !!

  49. Finn is so funny and Noah is SO adorable!

  50. He just broke the freakin TV

  51. Gaten has some moves

  52. Gaten is really good

  53. Finn, do u remember on what it looked like ur first time on the show, u asked Jimmy if he could host? Jimmy has acted the same since ur interview. Does that mean he still doesn't know how to host????

  54. And if u don't understand this comment than u still don't know how to read

  55. Look I know this comment is really long please keep reading it! It also has some good info, just by the way code red! Spoilers are ahead.

    1: I was watching an interview with the four main boys and they were doing charades, the word they had to act out with brain freeze! RIP (Like if you get the reference 😢)

    2: doesn’t everyone know that Hop is still alive? I think he jumps through the portal and was stuck in the Upside-Down (ovi). Then the Russians found him and that’s why they say, “No, not the American.” That, or maybe Will, Eleven, or Barb (sing she was brought back to life) could be the American..? They may have tracked down Will or El and could’ve brought Barb back to life. I know the one about Barb is a bit far-fetched but it could be a possibility. Also it could be Joyce… But who knows… Only the cast and writers

    3: I feel like no one is pointing out the fact that Mike said, “She’s not stupid! Look, it’s not my fault that you don’t like girls!” Only about 2% of fans have noticed this. If Will is, you know what, then this could be an adventure kind of like how Eleven was trying to find “Mama” and her sister. Will did dance with a girl at the Snow Ball but he may be bi…?

    4: (congrats if you’ve made it this far) so, let’s get this straight. I am pretty sure that in the first season they were in eighth grade (correct me if I’m wrong) so that means they would have gone to ninth grade in the second season right? WRONG!
    Mike asked El to the Snow Ball but right after she sadly was taken into the upside down. Because Mike misses her, every day he talks into the walkie-talkie saying how many days have passed, 11 checked in and at the end realizes that 353 days have passed which is almost as much is a whole year. That means that someone would have had to past which is why Destin is back from science camp with news about Suzie from Utah. Please see that it is now Halloween and when Mike asked Eleven to see dance it was most likely December meaning the dance was already around the corner. Now I don’t know about you, but I thought that most middle school dances were for eight graders only or they had no dances. Very rarely I would find a school that had a seventh grade dance. I would’ve thought that they would be freshman year of high school in the next season but like I said that did not happen. Because Mike called on the walkie-talkie for about a year claiming how much he missed El, it tells you how much time had passed and honestly I don’t think it ever did clarify what grade they were in and I didn’t find any of this information anyway. If you know what Great Britain and you can prove this theory wrong then please tell me in the comments!

    These were just my thoughts of what happened and what might happen but let me know what you think and if you agree with any of my theories please like this comment! Thank you for reading them.
