“We get a phone call from somebody who’s very nervous that they lost their phone,” said Vincent Zurzolo.

The person on the other end ended up being actress Molly Shannon, who is known for her “Saturday Night Live” character Mary Katherine Gallagher.

She appeared in the couple’s TikTok, entering with her character’s iconic catchphrase, “Superstar!”

Shannon said she was grateful that the couple found and returned her phone to her, explaining that she is usually very careful with it.

“This has never happened to me because I am very reliable with my phone,” she said. “It must have slipped out of my purse, and I was panicked.”

Shannon said she immediately used Apple’s “Find My iPhone” technology and said that her cellphone was on 33rd Street.

“I’m like, ‘I am never going to get it back,’” Shannon said.

The "SNL" alum said when she called the lost phone, the couple was more than willing to meet up and return it.

“Vincent was so kind to pick up and I got my phone back from Vincent and Josephine and I said, ‘It’s very serendipitous that we all meet so there must be a reason for it,” Shannon said.

Zurzolo ends the TikTok video with a joke about Shannon staying the night with the couple, which the SNL star humorously played along with.

“It all worked out great, Happy Sunday,” Shannon said in her sign off.
