"Prior to that moment, I had said, 'Open up your boxes. One person has a key.' So when I looked at the faces of the audience, they go, 'But I have a key…but she has a key,' so that's why I said, 'You get a car! You get a car!' to try to clarify, because they all looked so confused. Everybody gets a car!"

Having exuberantly uttered the line 11 times, Ms. Winfrey gave way 276 Pontiac G6 sedans to her audience for an estimated cost of almost $8 million.
