Vickie's I Love You Surprise for Her Husband:
Vickie's husband Win is a devoted husband of 9 years and father of 3, who also happens to love Patti LaBelle. Vickie tricked Win into thinking that he was going on the Oprah Show to serenade her, but really the surprise is for him - singing a duet with Patti LaBelle, something only Oprah could pull off.
Win began to sing the song "If Only You Knew" and after he finished the first verse, Patti began singing from backstage. The pair sang beautifully together and had Vickie in tears the entire time. Patti also invited the couple to lunch with her after the show. What a special way to say "I love you".
Tiffany's Valentine's Day Gift to Her Grandmother:

After Tiffany's grandfather passed away just 2 months ago from Alzheimer's disease, Tiffany realized just how much she appreciates the time she has with her grandmother. In 30 years, Helen has had just 1 wish, and Tiffany wanted to make it come true. Helen finally got her wish - a red VW bug convertible!
Rand and Geraldine's I Love You Story:
Last year Rand set out to propose to his girlfriend, Geraldine, of 5 years in a big way - by buying ad time during the Super Bowl, costing $2.5 million dollars. Rand started mybigproposal.com to try to raise money for the time slot, and after appearing on Good Morning America was able to raise $10,000. Far from the amount he needed, Rand was able to get a corporate sponsor, but just 2 weeks before the Super Bowl, his sponsor backed out.
Not willing to give up, Rand made a new plan; he was able to get a local station to play his video during Geraldine's favorite show - Veronica Mars - and she said "Yes!".

Jim is a biology teacher and loves using Dr. Oz's Oprah Show tapes to teach his students in a creative way. Oprah invited the couple on the show and shared with them that Dr. Oz had surgery for the next few days, so they were going to stay in a hotel in Chicago until he gets to town to meet with them!

Oprah's cameras followed Tim to the florist and his house to tell his wife the news, she was in her bathrobe but still said it was the best Valentine's Day gift ever - she also was able to surprise her friends with the news that they were also going to the show with her.
