Jenna Elfman Thought The House Was On Fire, But It Was Her Husband Being Romantic (VIDEO)

Jenna Elfman explained that she can ruin almost any romantic moment with her husband. The actress was on "Conan," where she said she brings up the strangest and most off-putting topics just before they're about to have sex. What's more sensual than talking about getting the kids vaccinated?

One story, though, had Conan O'Brien back Elfman. She said that her husband is incredibly romantic and is constantly trying to think of romantic things to do. One year, he decided it would be sweet for Elfman to wake up "in the clouds." So he filled the room with dry ice.

But to someone coming out of a sleep state, there's only one thing that's going to make them think of. "I thought the house was on fire!" Elfman exclaimed.

She may well be the worst when it comes to romance, but some ideas are just destined to fail.

Catch Jenna Elfman on "1600 Penn," Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. EST on NBC. "Conan" airs every weeknight at 11 p.m. EST on TBS.
