Surprise! It's Mary Tyler Moore (1997)

To introduce her "Favorite Celebrity Women" episode, Oprah Winfrey recreated the famous opening credits sequence -- including the hat toss! -- from the TV show that most inspired her, The Mary Tyler Moore Show. After showing her audience the homage, Mary Tyler Moore herself walked onto the stage -- much to the amazement of Oprah, who jumped up and down squealed like a teenager. "I am still in awe of a woman whose life is an example of grace and sensitivity," says Oprah, who called her visit "the surprise of a lifetime."
