Craig then asked Carrie to explain what happened between Debbie and Elizabeth for the young 'uns in the audience who might not know.
He began with, "Your mother was married to..." which quick-witted Carrie interrupted by saying...
My father was a man named Eddie Fisher and they were best friends with Elizabeth Taylor and her husband at the time, Mike Todd.
Mike Todd tragically passed away in a plane accident and my father consoled Elizabeth with his penis. "
THAT is why I love Carrie Fisher!
Carrie ended by saying...

Carrie Fisher. Twenty-Five years after Leia. Still stunning. Still beautiful. And this century's Dorothy Parker.
