“But anyway, this is, it’s just going to be, it excites me. Because on the last day, this will be: Everyone’s families will be here,” DeGeneres continued. “And everyone’s children are going to be here. Because we all say goodbye. And this is just that it’s been an amazing journey. I never, ever thought it would last 19 years.”

The final episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” airs on May 26.
