''Living Single'' is a sitcom that ran from 1993 to 1998, beginning a year before ''Series/{{Friends}}''. It featured an ensemble cast of New York twentysomethings living in the middle-class Park Slope section of Brooklyn. The one obvious distinction is that the cast was African-American, but the audience was never hit over the head with it (too hard). The show gained points for showing Blacks succeeding in corporate America, from law to stocks to entrepreneurship.

** "Working Nine to Nine-Fifteen", with Max about to eat crow and beg for her old job back, which she left after she was demoted from her old, more beneficial position for giving a former client bad advice regarding a prenuptial agreement. As the phone rings and she tries to figure out what to say to her bosses, she then hangs up in shame.

** At the end of "Talk Showdown", after being embarrassed on the talk show by Khadijah, Regina announces that she is moving out. Even as she is serious about it and packs her bags, Khadijah ''still'' [[KickTheDog makes fun of her.]] Also, when she is leaving out the door, she mentions to her, "oh, yeah, there's one thing that I forgot to say." When Khadijah asks what sarcastically, she replies on the verge of tears "I forgot to say goodbye."
** The ending of the episode when Kyle left for London, after he got on the plane:
-->'''Khadijah''': You gonna be okay?
-->'''Max''': Yeah, I'm gonna be fine.
-->'''Khadijah''': ''*tearfully*'' I'm not. ''*embraces Max*''

Added DiffLines:

** What turns this into a behind-the-scenes CrowningMomentOfAwesome is that Queen Latifah vetoed '''every''' attempt on the part of the writers to make jokes or storylines about Synclaire's (Kim Coles) weight gain over the course of the series.
