Mark remembered having tornado drills at his school in the Midwest. Kelly said that she recalled nuclear bomb drills and tests of the alert systems.

“In grade school, we would have nuclear drills where if we were under a nuclear attack, all we would have to do to be safe is get under our desk,” Kelly told the audience. “So, I would get under the desk.” Then, she proceeded to act it out for the crowd, squatting underneath her desk.

At the time, Kelly said that she would always look at the student to the left or right of her and state that getting under the desk wasn’t going to help them. “‘My mom said this isn’t going to help us,'” she told them.

She crawled back out from underneath the desk and they continued throughout the rest of the show. Mark mentioned that he remembered seeing a film about the nuclear apocalypse, but he didn’t recall any nuclear bomb drills at school himself.
