When The Mindy Project Met When Harry Met Sally: Parallel Plotlines

Mindy Kaling’s The Mindy Project on FOX has made no secret of its love for romantic comedy tropes, and particularly the film When Harry Met Sally, even incorporating scenes from that movie into the sitcom and the world of its characters.

A fan last week made the case that the characters of Mindy (Kaling) and Danny (Chris Messina) are even more closely following the script laid down before them by Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan). You put parallel plotlines in my pecan pie! As the fan thedandelionprod who made the video wrote: ” I simply wanted to show similarities between the two couples. I adore them both.”

Roll the clip.
