Conan: You, uh, you used to work, on my show.
Ellie: I did! I was an intern… well, I acted on your show, but first I was an intern.
Conan: You were an intern for some time on the show, right?
Ellie: For some time, I was sorta too old to be an intern, but I was an intern, um, in New York.
Conan: When we were doing the Late Night show.
Ellie: Yeah, exactly right. And, um…
Conan: Did we… I don’t remember… because later on, when you became famous, people said, “Oh, Ellie used to work on our show as an intern!” … and I said, “I don’t remember that.”
Ellie: No, we did not talk. And it was nothing you did.
Conan: GOOD, YOU FOLLOWED THE RULES THEN, DIDN’T YOU?! Now everyone thinks I’m Mr. Burns out there.
Ellie: No, it’s the opposite. I was very scared of you. Not from anything you did, but only because you’re very… wonderful, and you’re tall, and I was scared!
Conan: That makes no sense!
