Regis Philbin's long-time 'Live' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) TV partner Kathie Lee Gifford came by her old show to bid the daytime icon farewell. Regis, ever the gentleman, started off by making things as awkward as possible.

"It's perfectly human to experience some sexual tension when you work with someone over the years," Regis said, as the audience fell silent. "Honest to God ... did it ever happen to you?" he asked. Kathie Lee paused for a few seconds and then flatly replied, "No," a fantastic reminder of the duo's comedic timing.

'Live' then cut to a montage, narrated by Alan Alda, that looked back on the 'Live With Regis and Kathie Lee' days. It covered their 1988 national premiere and rise to becoming the highest-rated morning show on television. Exploring the duo's chemistry, the montage speculated that many viewers thought the two were married, featured Kathie Lee asking Regis about his hemorrhoids, and really really served as a nostalgic reminder of the glory days.
