    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Watch the fork Maggie's waving around at breakfast when speaking about Philip. The food on it vanishes when the angle changes.

      • Maxwell: Is that the London Times?
        An Englishman would never refer to this newspaper as "The London Times", but just call it by its proper name: "The Times", although this was probably done not to confuse it with the
        "New York Times".

      • When the family meets the mortuary manager (Steve) for the first time, the shot before Max is sitting down with Niles standing beside him over by the fireplace and Brighton and Grace are by the TV. The very next shot they are all over by the door to meet Steve.

    • QUOTES (9)

      • Maggie: I can't wait to get to school. Philip's invited me to sit at his table with his friends.
        Grace: But does Philip's table really exist?
        Brighton: And if you sit there, will they all disappear?

      • Maxwell: Brighton, you can't go through life expecting people to do everything for you.
        Brighton: Dad, I've got two words for you: Niles, Fran.
        Maxwell: I've got two words for you; military school.

      • Sylvia: I have pictures from Fran in her third grade production of "Fiddler on the Roof". (Singing) Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match!
        Fran: (Singing) Get out of here!

      • Sylvia: What are you waiting for? You think Mr. Right is just gonna walk right up, knock on your door and say 'Here I am!' (Maxwell walks in through the door)
        Maxwell: Ah, there you are!

      • Fran: Well, let me just clarify this, we are talking about having sex in my room, are we not?!
        Maxwell: No, not us.
        Fran: We already covered that.

      • Maxwell: This is all very awkward, I've, uhh, not had to have this conversation with other nannies. Of course, they weren't nearly as attractive as you.
        Fran: Oh well...
        Maxwell: As master of this house, there are certain things that I expect.
        Fran: Oh, Mr. Sheffield, maybe I should have read the fine print!

      • (In reference to Fran and her date)
        Maxwell: I can't see anything between them.
        Niles: (as Maxwell opens the kitchen door, they see Fran and her date kissing) I can't see anything between them either.

      • C.C.: Where's Maxwell?
        Niles: He's gone upstairs to discuss with Miss Fine the possibility of having sex in her room.

      • Brighton: You know Fran, you gotta get this guy out of your system, I mean, I got midterms coming up.
        Fran: I got middle age coming up, I win.
