Mad About You starred Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt as Paul Buchman and Jamie, a married couple in NYC. The sit-com showed on NBC from 1992-99. Paul is a documentary filmmaker, while Jamie was a public relations specialist. Great supporting cast, one of whom was Lisa Kudrow as a ditzy blonde waitress, Ursula. After Mad About You had been on the air for a couple of years, Lisa got the part for Phoebe on Friends. Both shows were shown on NBC at that time, causing a crossover - the producers decided to make the characters separated twins.
The Final Frontier (theme song to Mad About You)
Tell me why, I love you like I do.
Tell me who, can stop my heart as much as you.
Tell me all your secrets, and I'll tell you most of mine.
They say nobody's perfect. Well, that's really true this time.
I don't have the answers. I don't have a plan.
All I have is you, so baby help me understand.
-Murray the dog got full billing (Maui was his real name)
A recurring bit was Murray chased an invisible mouse, banging his head into a wall. Several episodes later, the humans saw the mouse - he had really been chasing a mouse!-
(What we do). You can whisper in my ears.
(Where we go). Who knows what happens after here.
Let's take each other's hand, as we jump into the final frontier.
I'm mad about you baby...Yeah!
(In the 6th season, they had a baby & named her Mable)
I know you, were hurt by other loves before.
Well I was too, more than a few.
You know everyone's got stories, everyone's been burned.
Everybody wants to tell you, everything they've learned.
But no one else knows better, cause no one understands
Exactly what it is between a woman and a man.
(Ursula meets Phoebe)
(Who knows who), can make the mystery seem clear.
(I just know you), should just hold me my dear.
Let's take each other's hand, and fly into the final frontier.
(Mad about you)
Well, all around the world you see people giving up on their love.
What they got?
They tell you, "It's so hard", and then they run because they're scared.
And well, who's not?
But they don't know, what I know.
Cause I know that look in your eyes, and your smile.
And, I know all your secrets. I know all your charms.
I know what it's like to be lying in your arms. Yeah....
Well here we go. Let's trust our love will persevere.
(Don't you know), it's only love that got us here.
If we take each other's hand, we can fly into the final frontier.
I'm mad about you baby!
Here we go into the final frontier.
Yeah. The final frontier. Woooo
I'm mad about you.
