Many people don’t remember this, but back in the ’80s, Jimmy Fallon and Oprah Winfrey starred in a soap opera together. The two played a husband and wife on Midnight Meadows, which was almost as popular as Days of Our Lives.

To refresh everyone’s memory, Fallon played a clip from the ’80s hit when Winfrey stopped by the Tonight Show. Apparently, it wasn’t just a soap opera, but rather a soap opera with vocal effects.
