Their hilarious skit onstage reminiscent of the quirky and dysfunctional TV family fans have come to adore for six seasons, reports usatoday.

"Thank you so much, but there's nothing on the prompter," Dan Levy said, taking the stage with his castmates, who played the fictional Rose family including son David, daughter Alexis, mother Moira and father Johnny.

"Is there like a tech guy or something?" Annie Murphy answered.

"Maybe we should just open the envelope," an impatient Catherine O'Hara suggested before Levy shut it down: "I don't think we should just open the envelope."

The hilarious on-screen family stood around awkwardly waiting for their cue, before Levy and his real-life father Eugene Levy argued over whether it was all a plan to "purposelyembarrass us" on national television. Turns out, the elder Levy sheepishly admitted to asking the writer's room to "lift the dialogue."

"You casually told a room of comedy writers to 'lift' your dialogue?" his son asked incredulously.

The sitcom was overlooked for most of its run by the Television Academy but at last year's Emmys, the  series won all seven comedy awards.
