The show writers apparently didn't look at their 1989 calendars. Fran says it's "two more days till Christmas" (so December 23rd) and that she has a lunch meeting the next day. However, December 23rd 1989 was a Saturday and a PR firm clearly wouldn't be working on Saturday and Sunday.
Manny: Jamie! Have you heard my Rose Bowl story?
Jamie: Yes, I have! I told it to my family!
Jamie: Well, what would you do if you were working and some woman walked in with your drycleaning?
Paul: I'd say: Ma! Go away.
Jamie: What did you come up here for then?
Paul: Because I figured you needed your clothes for the holidays.
Jamie: That was very considerate.
Paul: Well, y'know, born and raised in New York!
