Ha, that reminds me of a short-lived but quite amusing single-camera sitcom called Outsourced (based on the film of the same name, about an American who oversees a call-center in India). I can't find a clip or transcript to render the scene precisely, but it was more-or-less this:

Manmeet [one of the local employees, describing a date he'd had]: And then I held her hand. I think you call it "first base".

Todd [the American]: [dubiously] That's "first base"? What's second base?

Manmeet: Getting married.

Todd: What about third base?

Manmeet: Cricket only has two bases.
