Episode Summary

A Fine Friendship
Grace has a friend over and Fran meets his nanny. It's Kurt Jacobs, a very attractive man, who Fran treats as one of her girlfriends because she thinks he's gay. When he makes a move on her she freaks out (after all, this is a guy who's seen her without makeup on!). They still go out on a few dates, but it doesn't work out. Meanwhile, Gracie thinks she's pregnant after being late to watch The Lion King and overhearing Fran say women who are late are pregnant. And Niles tries to point out to both Fran and Mr. Sheffield how "the last apple is only missed after it's gone".moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (21)

      • Fran: I don't ask for much. I'm just looking for someone headed in the same direction as me.
        Maxwell: I know exactly what you mean. (They head upstairs together) Oh Miss Fine, I think you sat in something.
        Fran: Where? (Turns around)
        Maxwell: Nope. Looking good!

      • Fran: Sweetie, you are definitely not pregnant. Cause if you are, we're calling Geraldo immediately.
        Grace: i'm not? That's a relief. I'd like to get a figure before I lose it.

      • Niles: Oh, dear. That was the last pear.
        Fran: I'm sorry, did you want it?
        Niles: Well, yes. But I didn't realize I wanted it until someone else had sunk his teeth into it.
        Fran: Well you snooze, you lose!

      • Maxwell: Niles, you think I've been a little too rough on Miss Fine?
        Niles: Well she seemed to enjoy it, sir.

      • Maxwell: Haven't you heard C.C.? It appears that Kurt is straight.
        C.C.: That's impossible. We worked together closely for several months and that was absolutely no sexual tension.
        Niles: Well, duh!

      • C.C.: Nanny Fine, trying to pass Kurt off as a date? Pathetic.
        Niles: This from a woman who went to Cancun with a crash test dummy.

      • Grace: I hate you! You did this to me!
        Willie: I know! I just wish I knew how...
        Grace: Are we doing the right thing, bringing a child into this world?
        Fran: Boy, can those kids play house!

      • Fran: Do you think I should take this back?
        Maxwell: I think you should try it on.
        Fran: Well, I already had it- (Realizes she's not wearing a shirt) MR. SHEFFIELD! WHY DIDN'T YOU SAY ANYTHING?!
        Maxwell: Well, I... didn't notice!
        Fran: You didnt- you know, I'm beginning to wonder about you too!

      • Fran: Kurt? What's tiramisu?
        Kurt: I have no idea.
        Fran: (Pushes him away) Oh my god! YOU'RE NOT GAY?!

      • Maxwell: I think it makes a lot of sense. You're both charming, outgoing people, terrifically preoccupied with your appearance.
        Fran: (Checking her teeth in a plate) I know, we both get right down to what's important. I tell you, if he was straight, I'd bring him home to my mother.

      • Fran: I'm sorry, I know your rule about men in my room.
        Maxwell: That's okay, Miss Fine. I think of Kurt like your friend Val, with a five o'clock shadow.
        Fran: You've never seen Val at five.

      • Grace: I was late for The Lion King because we slept together!
        Willie: So?
        Grace: So P.S., I'm pregnant!
        Willie: I better get a job!

      • Grace: Can we go see The Lion King again?
        Fran: I'm sorry honey, you guys slept right through the last show.
        Kurt: Although I got hakunas coming out of my matata's.

      • Kurt: Can I use the phone again? My agent wanted me to call him.
        Fran: Oh, maybe you got a job!
        Kurt: No, he's just a sadist. But I'm addicted to rejection, so we both get a kick out of it.

      • Kurt: I can never get Willie to take a nap. You're amazing.
        Fran: I'm telling ya, turkey makes you tired. That's why they serve it at Thanksgiving. How else could you spend a whole day with your entire family unless half of them pass out?

      • Fran: What are you doing?
        Niles: I thought there might be something wrong with your eyes. A handsome man came in the room and you didn't do your usual Hanna Barbara reaction. Heart pounding through your thorax, tongue unfurling and landing on the floor...
        Fran: Niles, please. He's gay.

      • Fran: So, Brighton's playing sports? I accept tips.
        Maxwell: Please, the only reason he's on the team is to see Margaret try to run.
        FRan: Don't be so quick to judge, I've seen you break into a trot. You got a little Nutty Professor thing going on there.

      • Maxwell: Well, we're off. First game of the Broadway show league.
        Fran: Well, Mr. Sheffield! Don't you look adorable! I've never seen you in jeans before. Wait turn around, I think you got a rip. (Maxwell turns around, Fran stares at his butt) Nope, everything's looking good.

      • Fran: So, Gracie, are you excited about your play date with Willie?
        Grace: I think Willie just wants me for my toys.
        Fran: Sweetie, you might as well get used to it. You'll be guarding your toys for the rest of your life.

      • Niles: Oh dear, that was the last apple.
        Maxwell: I'm sorry old man, did you want it?
        Niles: Yes, but I didn't realize I wanted it till somebody else had sunk his teeth into it, now it's too late. It was right there in front of me, if only I'd snatched it up I wouldn't have this aching hunger.
        Maxwell: Good God man, have a bloody pear!

      • (Niles sees Fran and Maxwell "in bed")
        Niles: If you let me tell Ms. Babcock about this, I'll work free for a year.
