During the "Ask Steve" segment, Harvey was surprised by one of his best friends from his hometown of Cleveland and the woman who gave him his first kiss! The surprises weren't over yet; he was then blindfolded and told to guess who his next two special guests were by listening to their voices. The answer? Stars of new movie Ride Along, Kevin Hart and Ice Cube!

Steve's daughter Morgan demonstrated how to make his favorite dessert, German chocolate cake. His twin daughters Brandi and Karli then joined him to give a makeover to another pair of twins. What Steve didn't know was that there was more in store; Marjorie topped it all off by bringing the whole family on stage to sing "Happy Birthday."
