    • Maxwell: Please! Please, does... does the name Elizabeth Taylor ring any bells?
      Fran: Yes! Of course! Of course! I remember!
      Maxwell: Oh! Yes! Yes!
      Fran: I'm Elizabeth Taylor.
      Maxwell: NO! You're not Elizabeth Taylor!

    • Sylvia: (Showing Fran a photo album) Do you recognize this man? Fran: No. (Looks at more pictures) No. No. No. Who are all those men? Sylvia: They're your father, just wearing different hair.

    • Maxwell: You're my nanny. You take care of my children. Fran: But I've got style, I've got flair. How did I become the nanny?

    • Fran: Can I ask you a question? I've been dressing like this for 3 years and there's nothing going on between us? Maxwell: That's right. I'm your employer. Fran: Hmm. And what is it you do again? Maxwell: I produce musical theatre. Fran: Ah. Now it's all making sense to me.

    • Sylvia: How much is that dress in Macy's window? Fran: Who cares, it'll be at Loehmann's on sale!

    Notes (3)

    • This episode was videotaped on February 16th, 1996

    • A short scene where Maxwell is informed that the pearls have been found aired during the original airing but has never been seen again since.

    • Elizabeth Taylor's appearance was just one part of a chain of appearances she made on CBS the evening of 26 Feb 96. All sitcoms this evening featured an appearance, with the interconnecting thread of Liz's pearls being stolen. The story starts with Fran losing Liz's pearls. Annie finds the pearls in the Can't Hurry Love episode "Liz Taylor Show", the story continues in Murphy Brown and is finally concluded in the High Society episode "The Family Jewels", where Dott and Ellie's jewels are also stolen. Curiously, those were the last episodes for both High Society and Can't Hurry Love.

    Trivia (2)

    • Fran tells Elizabeth Taylor she thought about getting married once, even though she has said yes to two marriage proposals (Danny and Julius) and one fake (Maxwell).

    • Maxwell says the children 'left for school an hour ago', but seconds later, Gracie enters.

    • Fran: Listen, Cosette? Cosette: Yeah, I'm French. Cosette is one of the characters of the novel "Les Miserables" by Victor Hugo, which is obviously French.
