Since I'm on many eternity leave, you could cover me and the weather on "Gma"? Stop, ginger. No problem. I'm in. Anything for you. Good morning, America. Yep, it still fits. You better believe it still fits. Sam champion. He's on the phone right now. Sam! Oh, you know, Sam, I wish we could show -- Good morning, robin. We wish we could show you photos from Brazil. But it's a morning show. Instagram. Anyone can see them. We miss that laugh. What do the you miss most about "Gma," Sam? Um, waking up in the morning and having you hand me a fresh cup of coffee. It is wonderful. Because you know, ginger stepped in for you. How does it feel to be able to help her out? Well, amazing. Because, you know, with ginger, when they first met, they were such a great couple. And I can't think of anything more amazing for the two of them than having a baby. And her getting to spend some time with him. So, it's fantastic. I feel amazing. We have another surprise. Ginger, are you on the phone, too? Did I hear? I'm here. Hey, Ging. Hey!

You walked right into that. Nothing but the best. Ginger, you have a to-do list for Sam? I do. Number one, he has to take full credit for the dit dip in the jet stream, for all the cold air coming in. Sorry, Sam. And second, we have a tally. Vitai have Ta tally of Lara's puns. I thought that was Sam for a moment. And finally, just take care of the audience. I'm going to miss them probably just as much as everybody else. Yeah, that's true. Ginger, that's true. It's the most fun part of the entire show. Is to get outside and spend time with the people who come the see us. It's true. Yes. Even in January where it's nice and balmy outside. Sam, somewhwhat is your alarm clock set at? I'm not ready for this yet. Sam, leave the speedo at home. He's wearing it underneath, Lara. I'm wearing it right now. I'm wearing it right now.
