What Gayle doesn't know is that Cody and Justus flew all the way from Oklahoma to Illinois to surprise her! Oprah wants to know what Cody was thinking when he came galloping toward them after they first arrived. "I thought you were going to rope us!" she says.
"We heard [my wife] from the arena when you guys pulled in," Cody says. "You guys got out of the car and she recognized you and we heard her say, 'Oh, my God.' I was, like, 'Oh, boy.' ... It could have been good or it could have been bad."
From the looks on Oprah and Gayle's faces, meeting Cody and Justus was definitely a highlight of their trip through Oklahoma.
