"In 1993, the year we went on the air, Julia Roberts married
Lyle Lovett, Prince changed his name to a weird symbol, and
Michael Jordan quit the Bulls to play baseball. So, as you

- Conan O'Brien

Cart-Before-the-Horse Department: South African President Nelson Mandela,
who was the guest of honor at a White House reception last week, spent 25
years in prison before he served in public office. "Most politicians do it

that he ever had sexual relations with that woman, Dolly Madison."
