"U2 happened to be in Australia at the same time we were, and seeing the band live was definitely on Oprah's bucket list. She went backstage with Bono before the show, and he gave her a guitar. Later he also threw her a private party at the hotel. I remember thinking, 'It's 2 A.M., I'm in Australia, Oprah's over there talking to Bono and the Edge—life is good.'" —Andrea Wishom, senior supervising producer
