  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Niles: What makes you think she meant you?
      Maxwell: Come on man, she practically spelled it out. Handsome, intelligent, creative...
      Niles: Did she mention cocky, vain, couldn't put the laundry in the hamper if his life depended on it?
      Maxwell: No.
      Niles: Then what are you worried about, sir?

    • Fran: Sweetie, you think I'd make a good mother?
      Grace: Of course! (Imitating Sylvia) How slim are the chances you're gonna give me grandchildren? Morty, put the seat up! I almost fell in!
      Fran: That is the last time I have have my mother babysit for the afternoon!

    • Fran: Niles, you ever think of having a kid of your own? Someone you can take care of, put to bed at night, rub Vicks on his little chest when he's sick?
      Niles: I already have one. (Maxwell comes in) Isn't he adorable?

    • Sylvia: (Gasps) Oh my God! It's Monica Baker! I can't tell you how many people meet me on the street and swear that I am you!
      Fran: Ma, that's Tammy Faye Baker.

    • Fran: (Looking at the sperm donor book) Boy... is everyone in the menu, or do you have like a "catch of the day"?

    • Fran: Look at number 64!
      Val: But he's got a weight problem, gastrointestinal abnormalities, and a mother who is certifiably insane!
      Fran: Right, well, I want him to fit in the family.

    • Val: Now, you know Fran, this isn't gonna be easy. There's gonna be a lot of pain and suffering, and possible embarrassment!
      Maggie: (Walks up as Val is finished speaking) Oh, are you guys going to another singles bar?

    • Val: (Regarding Fran's decision of artificial insemination) I can't tell you what to do. Your body's your own.
      Fran: You got that right, because if anybody else was using it, I wouldn't have to order takeout!

    • Monica: (Explaining why she used a sperm bank) Well, I thought so, too... but then I decided that I wanted to have a baby before I started looking like my mother.
      Fran: (Looking thoughtful) About this sperm bank... does they have an express line?

    • Fran: (Looking at picture of her ex-boyfriend's newborn baby) Oh, I'm so jealous!
      Niles: (Grabs picture from Fran) Miss Fine, I can't see why this picture makes you yearn for a child. I could see a Lhasa Apso...

    • Fran: Awww... everybody has a baby. Look! (Shows Monica a picture) My ex-boyfriend Danny and his wife just had one. She's not breastfeeding, though. The kid's on a low-silicone diet.

    • C.C.: Listen, Hazel (Laughs) Don't you have anything to dust off?
      Niles: How about the left side of your bed?

    • Val: Fran, you know I'll support whatever you decide, but don't you think people would be a little shocked if you just showed up pregnant?
      Fran: Yeah... they'd think I had a date.

    • Niles: Miss Fine, you still have plenty of time to have children.
      Fran: Meanwhile, there's an expiration date stamped on my eggs: "Best if used before you start looking like your mother".

  • Notes

    • Donna Dixon is one of Fran Drescher's closest friends. Fran even fixed her up with her current husband, Dan Aykroyd.

  • Allusions

    • When Fran is watching Monica's son, there is a scene in which he runs into C.C. He immediately puts his hands up to his face and screams. This is a parody of the famous scene in the movie, Home Alone, after Kevin applies aftershave to his face.

    • C.C.: Listen, Hazel...

      This is a reference to the show that aired from 1961-1966. The series centered around Hazel Burke, a maid.

    • Fran: So, they'll call her the Mayflower Madam.

      This is a reference to Sydney Biddle Barrow, a modern American madam. She gained worldwide notoriety because of her upper-class background. She was also a Mayflower descendant.
