  • What daytime television is capable of!

    Finally! Something besides Oprah on daytime television that is different and interesting and honest and fun! Ellen is a gift to the business, and a culturally important person in our time. Great first show with Jennifer Aniston as her first guest. They are friends anyway and had cute conversation, it was a fun episode. jennifer brought ellen a welcome mat to keep on her stage for her guests, that ellen still has out there for every show! YAY for Ellen, may this show stay on the air FOREVER!moreless

    • *The very first monologue on The Ellen Degeneres Show. Sept. 8th, 03*
      Ellen: And this is the first time I'm walking out here. This is something I'm gonna do every single day. I'll walk out-- Uh, just to get you used to this, this is uh---I'll walk out like that and then I'll--I'll land right here. (audience laughs) This is where I stop. This is uh, my floor and I'm supposed to land on this little mark. (points down at the floor and picks up the mark) This is a mark here, that's what they call it in the business, and it's a piece of tape. (audience laughs) It's very important the director says to walk out and hit this mark. Gotta stand right there so, um…(looks around at the floor, audience laughs, then places the mark down, and stands by it, but now she's half on and half off of the camera. Audience laughs)
