Insert couch joke here. Tom Cruise returns to Oprah next week for a two-part visit, his first appearance since frolicking on her sofa two years ago.

For those of you new to civilization, Cruise acquainted himself with Oprah's couch in manic celebration of his relationship with then-girlfriend (and now wife) Katie Holmes. ( Look back at the craziness here.)

Oprah will first interview Cruise from his house in Telluride, Colorado, on May 2 (does Katie let him walk on the furniture at home?), and then he'll appear in the studio on May 5.

Note to Oprah's couch: You've been warned. - J.R. Whalen
