FakeCarson asks Erik when his mother knew he was "destined to be a rock star." When is that going to happen, exactly? Erik says that it was probably when he was in church, early on in his life. FakeCarson says, "Mama? When did you know your baby boy was gonna be a rock star?" Who is she, Freddie Mercury? Erik's wrong; MamaErik knew when he was four. He was singing in the bathtub and was "so cute." We see a school picture of young, Epstein-like Erik as we hear a tape of Erik singing. I can't hear him singing over the girls cooing.
Dan's turn. What was his first girlfriend? Dan says her name was Shannon and it was in the sixth grade. There was another girl with whom he played "He-Man" when he was little, but he doesn't know if she counts. Dan's mom celebrates, because that was her answer, but for some reason MTV won't let Dan have the point because he mentioned the technical girlfriend first. See, Dan, we can't count all of your non-technical girlfriends, because that's a long list of people that MTV doesn't want us to know about yet. We see photos of young Dan in his He-Man outfit as the girls scream and coo. More screaming and cheering as Ashley says that Dan got a wrong answer. Dan tries to protest and says he'll be a good sport about it, but he really did get the right answer. I know, Dan. I know. Just be happy they're actually showing you this episode. If you shut your eyes when Dan talks, you can't tell if you're listening to Dan or Malcom Jamal-Warner. I swear to you. He's Theo Huxtable.
Ashley's favorite secret hiding place? Ashley says it was his fort in a tree in the back yard. He says he can't say what he hid in the fort, but that he'd spend days in there. Ashley's mom says his favorite hiding place was this G.I. Joe Army box he had where he kept "things." Hey! Everybody wake up! I can't be the only one forced to watch this. Ashley tells FakeCarson that he still has that box, worried that maybe his mother has finally found his gay porn collection. Even the girls have stopped screaming at this point, and a few don't even bother smiling anymore.
Trevor. Has his mother sold any of his things on eBay? Trevor says he can't imagine his mom doing that. Too bad, Trevor. We see footage of a very tiny Trevor walking around as MamaTrevor explains that Trevor loved Fievel of An American Tail. Then she sold his Fievel doll on eBay. That's horrible. Trevor melts to the floor and dies. "That's wrong!" FakeCarson says, so happy to see the boys suffering. That really is harsh, selling Trevor's shit. Trevor's mom is yelling in the green room that he's acting like a pussy over this stuffed animal doll and that he's lying to everyone when he says it was his favorite thing in the world. "Baby, I'm sorry!" FakeCarson whines. I've never heard the word "baby" said with such insincerity before. Ashley and Erik joke that Trevor's doll is now "somewhere out there." Hee. Momentarily, Dan is fooled that someone in the audience has Trevor's doll. I guess Dan assumes that all of O-Town's fans are there in that room. It's not that far-fetched, I guess. Trevor says he actually met the girl who has his doll. He thought she was kidding when she bragged that she had it, but now he knows. Trevor's mom is mean. "Thanks, Mom!" Trevor says to us.
