    • Maxwell: Sweetheart, since Imogene was an imaginary friend, couldn't you just imagine her alive again?
      Grace: If only it were that simple.
      Fran: She's not God, you know.

    • Fran: I remember when Goldie died, may she rest in peace. Maxwell: Your grandmother? Fran: My goldfish. Maxwell: Goldie the goldfish. Clever. You should write. Fran: I loved her so. And there she was one day belly-up in her bowl, her little body just covered in ick. We gave her a 21-flush salute. Maxwell: Lovely tribute. Fran: No. She just wouldn't go down.

    • Niles: Miss Fine, it's three o clock in the morning! Fran: Thank you, Big Ben! Niles: Lose somthing? Fran: No, I've just always wanted to go to China! Niles: Really, Miss Fine? Fran: You'd be singing a different tune if your wing tips were pushing up daisies! Niles: Let sleeping soles rest in peace. Fran: I can't, I'm still making payments on them. Niles: Oh, here. (Starts to dig) Fran: Oh, Niles! You doll, you! Niles: I just figure if we dig a deep enough hole we can bury the piano.

    • Maxwell: (About Maggie's shrink) She wants to see us. Fran: She wants to see us?! Ah, shrinks. They always blame it on the nanny!

    • Fran: I'm not the one who cut back on Gracie's therapy. Maxwell: You're the one who suggested it! Fran: Since when do you listen to me?
