"Guess who wasn't invited? Well thank you very much, Oprah!" Letterman said. "I'm disappointed and crushed. I want to bask in the glory that is Oprah! Who doesn't?"

"I'm laboring with a broken heart tonight!"

He said that Oprah has been mad at him since he found himself having lunch at the same restaurant as Oprah and he jokingly sent his lunch bill to her table.
