thought it was the funniest one, and you always go for
the joke. – Not when I’m competitive,
I don’t. – I see.
– All right. – Okay, Melissa,
fill in the blank. Before I was married,
I used to blank, but now, I blank. – I said,
“Only really hit on gay men, now I married
the right one.” [laughter]
It’s true. Really true.
What did you say? – I said, “She used to go
to dinner late at night, now she goes to dinner
at 4:00 p.m.” [buzzer buzzing]
– Also true, also true. – Also true.
– That could apply to me. – Yeah.
– I like to eat early. – Okay, Ellen…

your first kiss? – Well, this is very easy.
– Mm. In the back of a limo.
[bell dings] – Aww.
– Very nice. Very nice. – That’s nice.
– Have we gotten any right? – I don’t think
we’ve gotten any right. – Okay.
– That’s okay. – No, you’ve got zero.
– Well, you’ve got zero, but y’all, you look lovely.
– 17 years, guys. – Yes.
That is the end of the game. You look lovely, no points,
but you’re a beautiful couple. Beautiful couple.
– Is that the end of the game? Aww, that’s sad. All right.
– Yes, that’s it. – Yep.
– Well played, well played. – We did it. Wonderful.
– That’s it.

  1. Though the name of the game was "not so newly wedded"… actually Mellisa and her husband won the game… cz when u were together for 17 years in my prespect all the couples forget what each other like…. They remember most of those things only within the first few years of marriage 😂

  2. Unfair game: precise questions and answers for Ellen and Portia, complicated for the other couple.
