    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • When Maggie is prepping Brighton to take him to a "Geek Party," she suggests that he do his 'JJ Walker' impression; he does, using the trademark phrase "Dy-No-Mite!" but the closed captioning says "I don't mind."

      • Maxell: (To Fran) I've never met your father - no one has.

        This is a pun to the viewers, as there are several episodes where Morty has appeared, such as "The Passed-Over Story", "Ship of Fran's", "Schlepped Away" and "You Bette Your Life", but his face is never shown until the end of the series and he has hardly any lines.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Fran: Thank you for meeting me for this emergency session. Sorry for the inconveniance.
        Dr. Jack Miller: (Getting acupuncture) It's okay, Fran. Getting prodded by needles feels oddly similar.

      • Dr. Jack Miller.: You come in here talking about your father and jump right into marriage.
        Fran: Are you saying I want to marry my father?

      • Sylvia: Niles, you smell delicious.
        Niles: Why thank you.
        Sylvia: What is it ham?

      • Maxwell: Niles, I don't know what the woman wants anymore! What am I supposed to do? Niles: May I speak freely, sir? Maxwell: Yes of course, old boy. Niles: I am so bloody sick of this, year after year! "I told I loved her, I took it back, I'm afraid of commitment, I'm worried about the children!" (Grabs Maxwell, starts shaking him) For God's sake, make a move! Do something! YOU PASSED ON CATS! DO YOU WANT TO REGRET THIS FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE TOO?!

      • Niles: (to C.C.) In the risk of sounding like the doctor who delivered you, this could get ugly.

      • Maxwell: Don't you look adorable today.
        Fran: Thank you.
        Maxwell: You know, you could be Margaret's sister.
        Fran: Oh sister... (under her breath) ... stepmother.

      • Fran: (about her mother and father) One time, she bought this backless dress and he made her return it because it showed too much cleavage.
        Niles: Cut too low in the front?
        Fran: You wish the front.

      • (Fran comes down the stairs wearing a turtleneck sweater and a pair of jeans)
        Niles: Miss Fine...the way you're dressed!
        Fran: What?
        Niles: You're dressed!
