Mad About You Easter Egg - Offhand Reference to the "Aliens"

In the episode where we find out that Mark and Fran, Paul (Paul Reiser) and Jamie's (Helen Hunt) friends, are splitting up, Mark asks Paul if he's seen the Alien movies. Paul immediately says "Only the first one." What's funny about this is that Paul Reiser starred in the SECOND Alien film, "Aliens".

Paul's character in Aliens 2 is also the cowardly traitor... he's not too proud of that either. However, he did reconcilitate the two (Aliens and Mad About You) on Saturday Night Live, in a skit entitled "Mad About You Alien."
