Enough kudos have been given. Maybe it's time to stop the spilling?

Mama, the kudos have been given... but is it time to finally move on??

It was one-liner heard 'round the world earlier this year when the 16th season of RuPaul's Drag Race was airing on MTV.

During a March episode of the beloved, Emmy-winning reality drag competition, contestants Q and Plane Jane were in the Werk Room getting ready for the week's runway challenge ("DragCon 1980") when Q opened up to Plane about something very personal to her: being HIV positive.

Though it was a very emotional and heartfelt moment from Q, the moment that stuck out most to Drag Race fans was Plane's reaction to Q's story, the now iconic one-liner, "Mama, kudos for saying that, for spilling."

Shortly after the episode aired, Plane's words took on a life of their own online, and a bajillion internet jokes were born...

Though it was definitely one of the more memorable (and meme-able) moments of the entire 16th season, we couldn't help but wonder, what are Plane's current thoughts on her infamous reaction? And does she ever get tired of hearing it constantly in her life post-Drag Race?

Out caught up with the season 16 finalist during Monday night's Drag Race Emmys FYC event, and she spilled all the tea...

"Well, maybe so. Maybe I am," Plane said when asked about if she has fatigue when it comes to the iconic meme she sparked. "But at the end of the day, honey, I'm glad that people were able to universally relate to one of my signature deadpan, socially, sort of inappropriate responses."

"Even though I responded in the way I did, I think ultimately people understand that I was trying and attempting to be very genuine and demonstrate compassion in that moment," she continued. " But you know what? It is a phrase that has taken the world by storm, and I sure as hell am getting a little tired of hearing it, but baby, I'm sweet as pie. Honey, I'm going to give it right back to you if you give it to me."

New episodes of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 9are streaming every Friday on Paramount+.
