Oprah and Gayle

6 of 17
With many miles left to drive before they reached Cincinnati, Oprah and Gayle decided to pass the time by calling their friend Quincy Jones. The only problem was that Quincy was in Europe...but that didn't stop the road trippers from trying.

After five attempts, Oprah finally got Quincy on the phone. Quincy could barely hear them through the bad connection, so after yelling out a few words, they had to say goodbye.

"It took us 30 minutes just to have a 30-second conversation, but we were that much closer to Cincinnati and that much closer to the end of this trip," Oprah says.
