Talking about her relationship with her father, DeGeneres said that Elliot "was very proud of me". "And I said, 'You know I still love you, ' and she said, 'Well, I would appreciate it if you would do something to let me know you're still thinking about me while you're on The Tonight Show.' And she asked if I would eat some banana cream pie and do a jumping jack". "There was not one bone of judgement in his body", she continued.
