"You have been to my house," DeGeneres says to Speedman. "Not my house now, but a house I lived in long time ago."

"Yes, I have," Speedman confesses, recalling that it was in 1996.

"I was not there," DeGeneres continues. "Who invited you?"

"My memory on that is a little fuzzy," he says nervously. "It was the first time I had ever been to L.A. I was here for 24 hours. I got flow in for 24 hours, got off the plane, did a screen test, met up with a bunch of other crazy Canadians. We drank a little too much and at some point someone said, 'Hey, we're going to Ellen's house to swim in her pool.' So, I was like, OK, that's cool. I'll do that, no problem."

"So, I ended up crashing your pool drunkenly until 4 a.m.," he continues. "And, you weren't there."

"No, I wasn't," DeGeneres says. "I learned today that that's what my assistants were doing when I was out of town. We had a suspicion that that was happening."

Speedman tries to soften the situation by assuring the host that it only happened once, asking, "Am I going to get someone in trouble?"

"No, they've been long fired," DeGeneres says laughing.
