When Oprah arrives, Brian starts jotting down her feedback. "My role during this 'Favorite Things' meeting is really to take notes, to pay attention to what Oprah's saying," he says. "A lot of what she'll say in this meeting we will actually put into the script that you'll see on the show."
Oprah sees a lot of items she loves, but there's one key product that's missing—Apple's iPad. "I would just say the iPad has revolutionized everything that I do. It changed the way I operate," Oprah says. "The question is, number one, will they give it away? Number two, they're having trouble keeping them in the stores. You may not have enough."
Jenna and the team exchange glances. "We started hearing about Oprah's love of the iPad last year. Then we're in the presentation and she brings up the iPad again," Jenna says. "None of us want to say we don't know if we can get the iPad for 'Favorite Things.' But we're gonna keep trying."
