Episode Summary

EDIT
Ask Aunt Fran
AIRED:
Fran demands absolute silence from the family because she is filling in for an advice columnist. She needs the house to be quiet so she can concentrate on helping these people solve their problems. When she tells the family about some of the letters, Mama gives advice on what to tell them. Fran uses Mama's advice and becomes a hit. She impresses her boss, and he arranges a lunch date with her. Fran believes her editor might even want to syndicate the column, which would mean big bucks. Since Mama has given Fran all her advice, Buzz insists Mama gets half of the profits, but Fran refuses. Fran's editor picks her up for lunch, and during dessert, he tells her about a problem a "friend" has. This "friend" has feelings for an older woman he just hired, though he is married. He asks Fran's advice, and Fran rushes to call Mama, who tells her that she is the older woman and her editor is the "friend." Fran goes back, tells her editor off, and quits.moreless
