"CASTRO: Yeah, so my brother Joaquin and I are twins. I am one minute older.
SAGAL: You're one minute older. Do you ever lord it over him?
CASTRO: I do. You know, every now and then, when we were growing up - I was born at 2:40 in the morning, and he was born at 2:41. So I would wake up at 2:39, and when it turned 2:40, I'd wake him up. And for a minute, I would brag that I was older than he was."
