    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (14)

      • Marilyn: I have a story everyone says should be a play. It takes place in Connecticut.
        Maxwell: And?
        Marilyn: What, you're not bringing anything to the table?

      • Sylvia: Why aren't you putting your raincoat on?
        Fran: Careful, Ma. You want Mr. Sheffield to think he's proposing to your couch?

      • Fran: Just go pack and act surprised.
        Brighton: I promise Fran if he actually asks you, we'll be genuinely stunned.

      • Fran: We're getting married!
        Brighton: Dad finally popped the question?
        Fran: No... not yet!
        Maggie: And Dad's already agreed to go with you?
        Fran: No... not yet!

      • Fran: I've really come to like myself as a person.
        Dr. Jack Miller: So what's the problem?
        Fran: EVERYONE ELSE HATES ME!

      • Niles: I don't know what I was doing in that unholy alliance with Ms. Babcock.
        Fran: I know. It's like Yogi dumping Boo Boo for the Ranger.

      • (Negotiating days off at work with Maxwell)
        Niles: I'll bring you back Cuban cigars.
        Fran: I'll send my mother to Cuba.
        Niles: I'll make you Baked Alaska.
        Fran: I'll send my mother to Alaska.
        Maxwell: In all fairness, Niles did ask me first.
        Fran: He's wearing your suit!
        Niles: She's wearing Ms. Gracie's skirt.
        Fran: And that's how I just won.

      • Val: Well Fran, you know what they say...
        (there is an extremely long pause)
        Fran: (anxiously) What, Val?!
        Val: No, really, you know what they say, Fran. You're far more the sophisticate than I am.

      • Fran: Anyhow, I was reading the paper, El Niño's coming to New York this weekend and you and the kids have got to get out of all that water. I'll tell you what. You all could come to the Fine family reunion in Niagara falls.
        Maxwell: Or I could eat a bowl of leeches and slowly bleed to death from the inside out.

      • Maxwell: All right, all right. I know when I'm outnumbered. Seems we're going to Niagara Falls for the Fine family reunion.
        Fran: Oh, we're gonna have so much fun. Just don't get freaked out. It could get pretty treacherous being thrown about, bounced off of handrails, spritzed in the face...
        Maxwell: Oh, I'm quite comfortable on boats, Miss Fine.
        Fran: Oh, I was talking about the buffet line.

      • C.C.: (Referring to Fran) Well, if it isn't I Love Loosely. (Laughs and turns to Niles) Okay, it's your turn. Toss out something really vile.
        Niles: I would, but I can't lift you.

      • Niles: Do you realize that she gets everything she wants because she has Mr. Sheffield wrapped around her little finger?
        C.C.: Well, look who just popped his head out of Maxwell's derriere to announce it's spring.

      • (After Fran storms off)
        C.C.: Oh, ho ho! What a treat. It's not often one gets to see a domestic squabble between actual domestics!

      • Fran: Niles, I got what I wanted not because of anything I said or the way I look.
        Niles: Oh, please. (Hops onto the kitchen table and crosses his legs, mimicking Fran's voice) Oh, Mr. Sheffield. Do you mind if I dust your desk with my tuccas?
        (C.C. walks in)
        C.C.: Well, if it isn't Priscilla, Queen of the Dessert.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • C.C. calls Niles Priscilla, Queen of the Dessert. This is a reference to the 1994 movie The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. In this film, Two drag queens and a transsexual get a cabaret gig in the middle of the desert.

      • Maxwell calls C.C. and Niles Scully and Mulder. These were the two main characters of the 1993 show The X Files. Fox Mulder the believer and Dana Scully the skeptic investigate the strange and unexplained while hidden forces work to impede their efforts.

      • The episode title is a play on the 1963 movie, From Russia with Love, which starred Sean Connery as James Bond.
