On Tom's Visit to the Show in 2005
Oprah: When we finished that show with you jumping up on the sofa, I was like, "Wow. What was that?"

Tom: It was a moment.

Oprah: Yeah, it was a moment. I had no idea it was going to turn into an international brouhaha, as I'm sure you did not either.

Tom: No, I didn't. ... That was a moment, and it was real.


Oprah: Obviously, I had interviewed you many times before, and you've been very Tom Cruise-like. Very, "yes, I'm going to talk about this, but I'm not going to talk about that." So I had never experienced that before. ... What was going on with you in that moment?

Tom: It was something that I just felt that way. And I feel that way about [wife Katie Holmes]. And it's something, you know, that's just how I felt.


Oprah: Now, this is interesting because, obviously, you've been in love before. You've been in love before. But never felt it this way?

Tom: No. Not like this. ... Something I just can't articulate—what it's like and that feeling and the connection and just who [Katie] is and what she means to me.
