    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Niles: Isn't it bittersweet to look at passionate youth and know it's all gone for you?
        Fran: And on that note, we move into the second level. (Opens a box of chocolates) Niles, it's half empty!
        Niles: You think you're the only one whose life sucks?

      • Fran: Look at what my day consists of: Buy Brighton socks, take Grace to therapy, pick up Mr. Sheffield's prescription.
        Val: Please, my heart bleeds for you. There are only two words on my list: Don't. Jump.

      • Maxwell: I'm sure Ms. fine has been entertaining you.
        Nigel: Oh yeah she's been incredible.
        Fran: Haha, yeah... in a Martha Stewart kind of way!

      • C.C.: Maxwell will go insane if he has to see the hunchback one more time!
        Niles: Then why don't you quit?

      • Niles: Good things come to those who wait, sir. Unless they wait too long and then they slip through their namby-pamby fingers.

      • Maxwell: (Condescendingly to a depressed Niles) Oh dear, Niles, what is it this time? Your job? Your weight? No future?
        Niles: Actually, I was just wondering why I don't have a social life but you cleared that right up for me. Thank you, sir.

      • (After missing the boat, Fran limps, because of her twisted ankle, into the dark mansion dejectedly and starts crying; Maxwell comes home and turns on the lights)
        Fran: Oh, Mr. Sheffield. I thought you went to bed hours ago!
        MaxwellNo, I've been out since late this afternoon.
        Fran: So, you haven't been in your office?
        Maxwell: No, why?
        Fran: Uhhh, Ma's in there, watching TV--she had a fight with Daddy.
        Maxwell: Well I'm glad you're still up. You know I've missed you. The play is coming along great. Soon it will be opening night, and you'll be there wearing something smashing
        Fran: I'll put a couple Tums in your cummerbund, so if you get nervous... (starts crying)
        Maxwell: Miss Fine, have you been crying?
        Fran: I... went clubbing with Val and I hurt my ankle.
        Maxwell: Oh, lets have a look. (pulls off Fran's boot) I better put some ice on it. You think you can walk?
        Fran: No?
        (Max goes to get an ice pack, Fran jumps up and hops on one foot to Maxwell's office and retrieves the letter she left there for Mr. Sheffield before she had almost left--then hops back to the couch. Max comes back in with an ice pack)
        Max: It amazes me how you can manage to totter around the house in those high heels... (notices Fran breathing heavily from running) why are you breathing so hard?
        Fran: Uh, Lamaze. Ma enrolled me. Wishful thinking.
        Maxwell: You better sleep with that ice pack on, and we'll call a doctor in the morning. (Fran starts to get off the couch) Oh no, you shouldn't walk (scoops Fran up in his arms and they walk upstairs) Don't you worry Miss Fine, I've got you.
        Fran: Boy do you ever!
