  • The first time we see Max's love for Fran...

    9.1
    This episode is I think the first time we really see that Maxwell is actually falling for Fran. Fran and Val want to go to this new club and they can't get it. They invited Mr. Sheffield to help him get in as he is a famous person and all. However, Fran and Val kind of tick Maxwell off and when he gets picked to go in the club, he doesn't take Fran and Val. Later when Max comes out, he says he met someone. When he brings her out, low and behold, she looks almost exactly like Fran. Eventually it doesn't work out, but it's evident Maxwell actually attracted to Fran and she knows it too.



    Sidenote: Brighton's whole gym class scenerio is hysterical. Especially when it is revealed, what he meant by "smaller".



    Pretty good start to the second season.moreless

    • Maxwell: First day of school already, huh? Summer just flew by.
      Fran: Spoken by a man who did not see the Lion King 257 times.

    • Niles: (Referring to Brighton) Mr. Sheffield thinks their talk went rather well.
      Fran: Oh, Mr. Sheffield thinks C.C. goes horseback riding for the exercise.

    • C.C.: Well, I think it's very distasteful of Maxwell to be dating so soon. Isn't a decade the standard period of mourning?
      Niles: Die, and let's find out.

    • C.C.: (After Niles drags her into the living room by her arm) Niles! What is so damn important?
      Fran and Leslie: (In unison) Hi!
      C.C.: Good God, it's multiplying.

    • Fran: Oh, you didn't like her? Gee, I thought her charm was only exceeded by her beauty.
      Maxwell: Oh, she had a certain way about her. There was just something missing. Like ordering champagne and getting ginger ale. You know, they look alike, but don't make you feel the same.

    • Niles: (To Maxwell) You see I should have used my oven mitt instead of this somewhat inferior substitution. But I didn't realize I wanted my oven mitt until I saw them together, and then I understood that of course my oven mitt is exactly what I wanted and, goodness gracious, it was under my nose the entire time.

    • Fran: Where's the Nintendo?
      Niles: I accidentally pounded it repeatedly with a meat mallet.
