The siblings "could not stop laughing" and quoted the scene all day.

"My mom got so annoyed of it," Sandoval said. "And later on that night, she was yelling about us not cleaning up and the house being dirty...and I whispered to my brother, 'Hey Gage, you know what's funnier than 24?'""My mom was livid, but we literally could not stop laughing about it," she said.
