Thomas Cruise Mapother IV

Cruise has made several expressions his feelings for Holmes to the media, most notably the "couch incident" which took place on the popular The Oprah Winfrey Show May 23, 2005. Cruise "jumped around the set, hopped onto a couch, fell to one knee and repeatedly pressed his love for his new girlfriend." The phrase "jumping the couch", fashioned after "jumping the shark", is used to describe someone "going f the deep end" in public in a manner extreme enough to tarnish his or her reputation. It enjoyed a short-lived popularity, being chosen by the editors the Historical Dictionary American Slang as the "slang term the year" in 2005 and by the nonprit group Global Language Monitor as one its top phrases for the year.
The "couch incident" was voted #1 2005's "Most Surprising Television Moments" on a countdown on E! and was the subject numerous parodies, including the epilogue Scary Movie 4, an episode South Park, a short on Sesame Street, and an episode Family Guy. Entertainment Weekly put it on its end--the-decade, "best-" list, saying, "Lesson learned: Tell, don't show."
In early May 2008, Cruise reappeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show to celebrate 25 years in the film business. The feature was a two hour special, the first hour was Oprah spending the day with Cruise at his house in Telluride, Colorado on May 2.
