* MistakenForRacist: Elliot mistakes an Asian-American client for the Chinese food delivery guy. Jack's attempt to set things right backfires when the person he thinks is the returning client actually works for him. To cap it off, Elliot is drinking a Slushie and gets brain freeze. Holding his temples so tightly his eyes slant, he bows back and forth saying "Ah, so cold!" - just as the client returns to be insulted a second time.

''Just Shoot Me!'' (1997-2003) was an Creator/{{NBC}} WorkCom about Maya Gallo (Laura San Giacomo), a highly qualified but difficult-to-work-with journalist, who, after alienating one news anchor too many, is forced to take a job with the trashy ''Cosmopolitan''-esque fashion magazine run by her estranged father Jack Gallo (George Segal). Originally focusing on the father-daughter bonds, it quickly became a workplace ensemble piece with supporting characters Dennis Finch (the dad's personal assistant, played by Creator/DavidSpade) and Nina Van Horn (an ex-model turned writer for the magazine, played by Wendy Malick) taking over as the main characters of the series.

Notably predated ''Series/UglyBetty'' (as well as ''Series/YoSoyBettyLaFea'') and ''Literature/TheDevilWearsPrada'' with the premise of a non-materialistic woman working for a shallow magazine. Was ultimately canceled due to ExecutiveMeddling and being bounced around the schedule, though it managed to serve up a GrandFinale.
