Saturday Night Live's Amy Poehler and 30 Rock's Tina Fey are being called the funniest women on the planet. So, when they were invited to Chicago to be on The Oprah Show, they insisted on traveling in style—road-trip style!

Tina and Amy say they became fast friends after meeting in Chicago in 1992. At the time, both women were performing in famed Chicago improv theaters Second City and Improv Olympic. Later, the duo would go on to work together on Saturday Night Live.

Now, Tina and Amy are taking the big screen by storm, starring together in the movie Baby Mama. In the film, Tina plays a working, single woman who wants to have a family but can't get pregnant. Amy plays an unlikely surrogate mother. "The last time we got to work together this much, it was driving around in a hot van for the Second City doing shows for $75 a night," Tina says. "Now, we each had our own camper and we had real good food. It was great. It was just being paid to hang out."
