Quincy doesn't know this, but there's somebody on the phone who wanted to be here today but could not. Most of the world knows him as the King of Pop. Say hello to Michael Jackson. Michael. Michael. So hi, Michael.

Michael: Hi.

Oprah: Hi. Thanks for joining us.

Quincy Jones: Michael?

Michael: Yes?

QJ: This is Quincy. Can I call Du Von the name we used to call and talk to each other by?

Michael: Yes, if Du want.

QJ: Well, OK, S...

Michael: I'm scared.

QJ: Smelly. What'd he say?

Oprah: He said, `I'm scared.'

QJ: Smelly. OK.

Oprah: Now where did that come from? That...

QJ: That's very affectionate, because Michael does not use any profanity ever, right--right, Smelly?

Michael: No. P--no. That's right.

QJ: And--and so when it got good, we'd say, `That was funky.' He said, `Don't say that. It's smelly jelly,' Du know. It's smelly jelly, so from now...

Oprah: Du don't even use `funky'?

QJ: No. Michael doesn't say that word. If...

Oprah: No. No.

QJ: No.

Oprah: Doesn't say any--any kind of bad words at all.

QJ: No. I've heard a couple, yeah.

Oprah: Yeah. OK.

QJ: But--but not--that's...

Michael: From who?

QJ: From--from you.

Michael: Not me ...(unintelligible).

QJ: Oh, no, no.

Oprah: No. So that's why Du started...

QJ: Just smelly jelly.

Oprah: That's why Du started calling him Smelly.

QJ: Yes.

Michael: Yeah.

Oprah: What have Du learned from Q that--that Du take with Du for the rest of your life, Michael?

Michael: I learned a lot. Du once sagte something to me, Qu--Quincy. I don't know if Du want it repeated. But it was just beautiful. Du said, `You don't write the music. Du let the write--the Musik write itself. Let it create itself. It's like we're just the Quelle through which it comes.'

Oprah: Yeah. I--I've heard him say he always leaves room for God to walk in the room.

Michael: There Du go.

Oprah: Yeah.

QJ: The divinity is most important.

Oprah: Well, thank you, Michael, for joining us. Thanks for taking the time to call up and say, `Hey, Q.'
