Here’s something you probably never expected to see! After spoofs of shows like House of Cards, Game of Thrones, and Mad Men, Sesame Street has taken on a romantic comedy classic: 1989’s When Harry Met Sally, which starred Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal as two acquaintances-turned-friends-turned-lovers.
Even more noteworthy, the parody features a version of the movie’s most famous scene: Ryan’s faked orgasm at Katz’s Deli, which isn’t exactly kid-friendly fodder. Sesame Street‘s approach, however, is perfectly safe for work — and children!
The video, titled “When Cookie Met Sally,” natch, begins with Cookie Monster and Sally bickering in the car together on a long road trip, as in the beginning of Rob Reiner’s original. Some time later, they run into each other at a famous deli in New York, where Cookie attempts to cut the line to satiate his insatiable hunger.
Sally just happens to be in line, so she decides to teach him a lesson in patience and self-control. After a few rounds of I Spy and a baseball-themed game of make-believe, Cookie finally gets his food — which leads to the big diner moment.
With their sandwiches devoured, the unlikely friends noisily chow down on some cookies for dessert, making lots of audible “nom nom” sounds as they eat. Hearing them, an elderly lady at the next table looks over and delivers one of the most famous lines in movie history.
