We all know the dream present at the center of A Christmas Story

All little Ralphie wants is an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle, and he will stop at nothing to get it. In the video above, two of the stars of tonight's live musical production are sharing the things they wanted most as kids, and we are all Jane Krakowski when Maya Rudolph shares her ultimate gift. 

"I remember very clearly wanting Mork from Ork's suspenders, and I remember the morning I got them, I flipped out," Rudolph says. "I couldn't believe it really happened." 

"Do you not love her more now than ever?!" Krakowksi responds. "I mean, I loved her already so much, and my answer seems so normal now." 

Rudolph stars as Mrs. Parker, Ralphie's mother, in the Fox production, while Krakowski plays his teacher, Miss Shields. 

The show also stars Chris DiamantopoulosAna GasteyerDavid Alan GrierKen JeongMatthew Broderick as the narrator, and 11 year-old Andy Walken as Ralphie. 

A Christmas Story Live! airs Sunday at 7 p.m. on Fox.
