The Starter Wife: Fantasy Dream Sequences

I'm a huge fan of The Starter Wife, starring Debra Messing. I think it's the smartest, funniest comedy series to hit television in years. It costars Judy Davis, who I also really like. At the beginning of each episode Molly (Debra Messing), has a fantasy dream sequence, in which she portrays the character in a famous movie scene. The fantasy applies her current predicament to the situation in the movie scene. Really cool. You can occasionally catch reruns on the USA Network. I don't know if they're going to do a third season.

Here is The Tomb Raider Fantasy from one of the episodes. Molly and Rodney go searching for Molly's BFF Joan (Judy Davis). Joan and her husband Pappy disappeared on their cruise...

The USA website has a page with all of the fantasy scenes available for viewing. Each fantasy is only one or two minutes long. Just scroll down on any of these pages to find the thumbnails. A few of my favorites:

The Godfather (Molly Finds Ex-Husband Kenny)
Cinderella (Molly Meets New Boyfriend Zach)
Mission Impossible (Retrieving her Journal from Boyfriend's House)
Hello Dolly (Hollywood Outcast Molly, Gets a Movie Deal for her Book)
