Anna Kendrick and Billy Eichner together is the ultimate dream come true for many sections of the Internet.

Well, it’s happening on this week’s episode of Billy on the Street. The actual game they play -- "What Does Katy Perry's Cat Care About?" -- is no Tina Fey-trying-to-name-20-Latinos-in-60-seconds, but stay until the end for the best part of the segment:

After she wins -- Kitty Perry cares about wet food and cat toys and not Katy’s partnership with Staples to provide resources to underfunded classrooms, FYI -- Kendrick is awarded the apostrophe from Lupita Nyong'o's name. Then this conversation occurs:

Kendrick: “That’s incredible! She doesn’t need it anymore?”

Billy: “No, she has an Oscar! She doesn’t need a freakin’ apostrophe!”

Kendrick: “Good for her.”

Billy: “Something-- well, we won’t discuss it.”

Kendrick: “One day.”

Billy: “But you were nominated!”

Kendrick: “Yeah, I lost though.”

Billy: “Who did you lose to?”

Kendrick: “Mo'Nique.”

Billy: “WHO ALSO HAS AN APOSTROPHE! Unbelievable. She seems easy to work with.”

That’s still not the best part! At the very end, Billy concludes, “Anyway, Anna Kendrick, it’s not an Oscar but I hope you enjoy Lupita Nyong’o’s apostrophe.”

To which Kendrick cradles the apostrophe and says, “It came true!”
