22-year-olds for my life, it’s like where am I going next? There’s
nothing in my purse. I have to find stuff to put in my purse. (audience laughs)

Kelly: What’s your favorite reality show?
First Lady: Oh, gosh. Okay, let me think…you know, I do love a little “Real Housewives” every now and then.
[Ed’s note: We wonder which city she likes best — we feel like Michelle Obama is a “RHONY” fan.]
On the 20th wedding anniversary the night of the first presidential debate:
Michael: Well, you know, but did you ever get a chance to celebrate? That’s what I was wondering.
First Lady: We did. The, the Saturday following the debate we went out to dinner.
Kelly: Oh, that’s nice.
First Lady: So, we’re, you know, it –it’s very quiet. We, we couldn’t do anything big because we– both on the road –
First Lady: –almost every day, uh, for the last some-odd months. So, but we had a really nice dinner together.
Kelly: I still feel that after the election and everything–
First Lady: –uh-huh ..
Kelly: –You definitely have to hold out for a more -uhm–
First Lady: –oh, oh definitely–

First Lady: Yeah. I have my list…gonna roll it out.
Kelly: (repeats First Lady) roll it out!
Michael: I have, I have faith that he can handle it.
On sitting quietly through the debates:
Kelly: I think that, as a spouse, it would it be very hard to sit there quietly in the middle of a debate. You must want to shout out.
First Lady: Oh yeah, absolutely. It’s like … I compared it to the Olympic parents watching their kid on that balance beam (makes scared faces) … you know, lots of clenching …
Kelly: And do you ever say, you know, do you ever go (mumbles as if she’s trying to give an answer)?
First Lady: Yeah, I do. I was sitting next to somebody last … at this debate and I was kind of moving around and … but you know they really caution you to be quiet, and I try to follow the rules so I don’t get in trouble. But it’s, you know, it’s part of the process, and it’s an important part of the process.
