Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The title of this episode should have been "When Paul Met Jamie." In an extended flashback, the viewer is apprised of the first encounter between the future Mr. and Mrs. Buchman. Paul (Paul Reiser) ends up chasing Jamie (Helen Hunt) so fast that she finally catches him -- and it's a true Rembrandt Moment. Appearing as Paul's "Ten-Second Date" is Lisa Kudrow, long before becoming a series semi-regular in the role of waitress Ursula Bufay.
