With spies in the news a lot recently, Ellen decided to search her audience members for Russian spies.

She approached several audience members who she deemed suspicious and posed some basic questions that they weren’t able to answer because they were laughing too hard.

Inspired by something she saw on CSI, Ellen called a number on a phone she confiscated from an audience member. The person on the other line couldn’t help but shout “Ellen, I love you!” while the talk show host interrogated her.

I’m not going to spoil the clip for you by telling you whether Ellen found any spies.
