In one of their visits to the Jimmy Fallon show, Ramsey revealed, “People like to ask me what I thought of the ending. And I ask them back, “What did you think of it?” I don’t know, I don’t have an opinion. I just let them either hate on it or talk about how great it was — mostly hate on the ending for like 10 minutes, and then I just sit there and listen and then say, “Goodbye, nice to meet you,” and then that’s it. Generally, the consensus is that it wasn’t great… It seemed fine to me.
