The Murphy Brown revival only just premiered, but it already scored its first big-name: Hillary Clinton.

On the sitcom’s return Thursday night, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee interviewed for a job as the main character’s secretary. In the show’s original run, the temp role was famously played by an ever-revolving cast of guest stars, including Bette Midler, JFK Jr. and Rosie O’Donnell.

In the scene, the women quipped back and forth about Clinton’s qualifications — namely how familiar she is with “emails.” The political pièce de résistance? The contact info on her business card reads: Hilary@YouCouldaHadMe.com.
