You need to be following Mandy Patinkin on Twitter. The Homeland star is currently staying home with his wife, Kathryn Grody, and their son Gideon Grody-Patinkin. They’ve been sharing enchanting moments of familial silliness through a string of videos that are utterly enchanting.

Let’s begin with their latest. Posted this morning, the vid below shows Gideon offering his Boomer parents a pop-quiz over dinner. What’s Pizza Rat? What’s TikTok? Their answers are a gift.

Part one of this quiz begins with a very mom moment. Grody chastises her son for filming her without lipstick. A debate begins about whether women need lipstick, and Grody schools him before taking a stab at the Dab and Gangnam Style.

How well do Patinkin and Grody know text acronyms? LMAO? BRB? IRL? Their guesses are better than the actual answers.

Of course, there’s absolutely no reason Patinkin and Grody need to know any of the above pop-culture tidbits. But for those of us who can’t visit our Boomer parents right now, isn’t it comforting to live vicariously through this famous family’s playful generation clash?

Want more? Sure you do. Here’s Patinkin pondering the meaning of GIF.
