Shriver, who was guest co-hosting, said she enjoyed watching the show.

“You saw a penis, right?” Dunham asked, apparently catching Shriver off guard.

“Well, I saw more than that,” a startled Shriver responded. “You caught me there for a second. I’m not sure if you’re allowed to say that on television, but you did.”

“I won’t be coming back!” Dunham said. “Going out with a bang!”

With laughter resounding through the set, Shriver begged Today co-host Matt Lauer to bail her out. “Matt, help! She just threw me off!”

Dunham began to apologize for the bizarre back-and-forth, to which Shriver responded, “That’s okay. That’s the difference between generations. I wasn’t brought up talking like that.”

The Golden Globe-winning actress and die-hard Hillary Clinton supporter recently revealed that the “soul-crushing pain” of Donald Trump’s election caused her to lose a significant amount of weight.

The sixth and final season of Girls premieres on HBO Sunday, February 12.
