This week Kathie Lee and Hoda will celebrate their fifth anniversary! That's half a decade of wacky banter and being afraid of animals and getting Anderson Cooper giggly drunk. There's so, so much to celebrate, but why not start at the very beginning? As in, the very first time that they sat down together on TODAY.

Ready? Here are just a few highlights from the original Fourth Hour!
