In 2006 Oprah Winfrey embarked on “the craziest thing I’ve ever done” with BFF Gayle King: A cross-country road trip. We watched as the two bickered over music and navigation techniques, and witnessed Big O pump gas for the first time in decades. Their friendship survived the 10-day trek, but Oprah vowed to never take another road trip again. Since the duo technically took us on a camping adventure to Yosemite National Park this week, Oprah claimed it didn’t count as a road trip. Maybe not — but the spirit of ’06 was very much alive. Once again outside of their comfort zones, the two playfully mocked each other’s shortcomings. So what were some of their best lines?
On Camping Preparation:
Oprah: What do you call that? [Pointing to a tent.]
REI Salesman: That is a tent.
On The Threat Of Bears:
Gayle: I’m thinking, I really had no interest in meeting a bear. Oprah actually acted like she wanted to meet the bear. No, thank you.
On Cooking In The Great Outdoors:
Oprah: We’ve been friends for over 30 years, and she’s never cooked one single thing in 30 years. Not an egg. Not a piece of toast.
Gayle: I’m a very good eater.
Watch Part Of Their Trip Here:
On Finding A Good Man:
Gayle: True or false: Coyotes are monogamous.
Oprah: Yes, they are.
Gayle: I need to find me a coyote, don’t I? Because it’s really hard with the men and the monogamy. Just saying.
Oprah: Oh, that’s what you’ve been missing.
Gayle: I need a coyote!
On Rising Sans Makeup:
Gayle: Good morning, America. Oprah Winfrey when she first wakes up. Isn’t she pretty? Go ahead, show them that TV smile.
Oprah: Wait a minute. You know what? Turn the camera around and look at glamour girl. That is the pot calling the kettle black.
On Fly Fishing:
Oprah: Whoa, it’s in my crotch right now.
Gayle: I’m all done with fly fishing. It’s just not for me. I like a pretty pool; I like a pretty colored drink with an umbrella sitting in it.
On Cocktail-Making Techniques:
Gayle: [To Oprah, biting the juice out of a lime] What is that? Are you supposed to bite it like that?
Oprah: What? I don’t have a squeezer — a juicer.
Gayle: Why can’t you just squeeze it with your hand?
Oprah: Because you can’t get enough juice out, Gayle.
Gayle: And you can get more juice biting it?
Oprah: Yes I caaaaaan.
On Their “Special Relationship”:
Oprah: Gayle, want to go in first? [Pointing to camper.]
Gayle: Let’s just add to that lesbian rumor!
Oprah: [Joking] Lesbian ruuummoorrs!!!
Gayle: Come on in, baby!
On Camping Attire:
Oprah: Do these pajamas make me look fat?
