In the discussion, Benard admitted that the initial appeal of quarantine is starting to wear on him a bit. He misses work! He shared:

I’ve got to be honest, [I] feel trapped, and I’ve got a big home. It doesn’t matter how big the home is, I feel a little bit trapped.

He also delved into some of the most challenging episodes he's faced while dealing with bipolar disorder. He added:

 One time I went into a Blockbuster and I thought I saw Jesus, and I went back to my wife who was at McDonald’s and I said, ‘Honey, honey…I saw Jesus at Blockbuster.’ I said, ‘You got to go come see him, you got to come to see him’ and we go in there and there’s a guy with long hair and a beard… He looked like Jesus, but obviously wasn’t Jesus, and so that was the beginning of a rough, rough time.
