Katie Couric finally announced her departure from "Today" this morning with a very heartfelt message to the folks at home. She didn't mention that she was going to the "CBS Evening News" and "60 Minutes," so luckily Matt Lauer pressed her on that front. The highlight, though, comes at the end of this clip (it's quiet so you might miss it), when Lauer gives Couric an ever-so-slightly condescending squeeze on the knee, Couric cracks, "Get your hand off my knee." and Al Roker chimes in, "I can't wait to see Bob Schieffer do that!"
