And and Mary Connolly for those who don't know came up on the David Letterman show started as the receptionist worked her way up to producer produced all the celebrity guests for Dave. But also developed a relationship with Dave where she was kind of one of the favorites and he'd play baseball with her in the office. He put her on the show where she would throw footballs with actual NFL quarterbacks because she knew how to throw a football and things came full circle for you. They last week with Dave. And why don't you tell everyone? Well, it's true. I started out as a and NBC and then got hired to work on late night with David Letterman and stayed through into the transition to late show with David Letterman CBS, and I had a great friendship with Dave. We had a we had a lot of. Fun together, and I would brief him on segments. I was a segment producer there, and I would brief him on segments. And while I would do that. We would either toss a football or toss the baseball when I left the show. It was a it was a tough. It was a tough split bittersweet. I'm sure it was bittersweet because I just said that I was leaving. I didn't give the show a chance to make me an offer to get me to stay. I you had made up your mind to move to California. And that that hurt Dave's feelings and understandable understand now seventeen years later, David Letterman appears on the Ellen show. Yes. And all that just washed away and his fondness for you was really really fun to to see and be around it. It was it was very sweet low obvious. How much she loved you? So sweet well heave.
