One of the later episodes of _The Nanny_ has a self-reflexive bit when the
character Ceci (who is actually pregnant) talks about how absurd it is that
television sitcoms (I think she refers directly to Seinfeld) try to cover
pregnant women with props and extra large clothing so as to keep the
pregnancy from the narrative. She is, as part of the sketch, wearing
oversized clothing and covering her stomach with flower pots and other
props. At one point she parades into the office carrying a large poster that
advertises the Broadway musical, _Baby_.
