Julia Roberts plays a Home Shopping Network host in her new movie Mother's Day, so Ellen decided to make use of Roberts' selling skills by having her play a game of "Pitch, Please" on Thursday's show. In this game, the guest has to try to sell an item without having any idea what it is. Roberts did surprisingly well as she constructed a generic pitch for what turned out to be sex toys.

Roberts really nails it right off the bat: "It is versatile, it is hypoallergenic, it comes in a variety of sizes, and Mother's Day is right around the corner." Ellen helps out by giving leading statements like, "You have this, obviously" ("I don't want to brag, but I have a couple") and "Your favorite activity to do when you have it on" ("Tennis"). She's great! Maybe she should consider a career in acting.
