Fran Drescher's character on the '90s sitcom "The Nanny" was always searching for the man of her dreams, ideally a rich Jewish doctor. Enter Jon Stewart, pre-"Daily Show" fame, playing Dr. Bob, owner of a red Porsche and an apartment with walk-in closets. What could go wrong?

A few reasons this glimpse into dating-as-portrayed-in-'90s-sitcoms made our day:

-Jon Stewart referring to himself as "the short Jew."
-His pickup line: "You must have really deformed adenoids."
-"Fran, I'm a doctor. I can park anywhere."
-Fran's not-so-subtle refusal to be put in the friend zone.
-Fran's inner monologue voiceover. (We just wonder what Dr. Bob's would have said.)
-Fran realizing she lies to herself about her age.
-The surprise ending that a) is not so surprising and b) means Fran is still available to one day end up with Mr. Sheffield.
