Ellen, unfortunately, did not keep the welcome mat there forever, but she tried to pretend she did.
“I’ve done this show 19 times,” Jennifer says, noting the distressed, hole-filled mat that someone had placed on stage. “That has only been here one time…What department distressed it to look like this?”
“I don’t think it’s the actual one,” Ellen admits. “I think we made a new one. I think the other one’s gone.”
“Oh, well thank you for your honesty,” says Jennifer, still wiping tears out of her eyes.
