    "All the years I've known you, I've never shared this," Robin said. "My first big interview, I was still in college, and I was quite nervous. And I, um...how can I make this, um...I wet myself."

    Ellen responded by asking Robin if she meant she spilled water on herself, to which Robin said simply: "We'll go with that."

    "No. No, it was a 'clean-up on Aisle 1' after I did the big interview,'" she clarified.

    "I don't remember who the interview was with," she continued. "I was nervous. I was still in college. I was really wanting to make an impression. And I think I really did, remembering it after all this time."

    Ellen then asked Robin if she feels "free" now that she's admitted this publicly, to which she joked that she feels "relieved."
