Fran Fine Sheffield
Chastity Claire "C.C." Babcock
Margaret "Maggie" Sheffield
Ladie in Ladie's Room
At the wedding, before Fran and Grace enter the powder room, Maxwell has a beige coat on, but when they leave the powder room, the coat mysteriously disappears.
In this episode Brighton says he's ten. Later in this season Fran will say he's twelve. Though it is possible for Brighton to have celebrated a birthday between this episode and the end of the season, he couldn't have aged two years.
When C.C. enters the house from the zoo, she has a peacock feather on her. The feather disappears on the next shot.
Fran: Mr. Sheffield, you remember my mother?
Maxwell: Of course. How do you do, Sylvia?
Sylvia: Stay here, I want you to meet my husband. MORTY!!
C.C.: Oh God, it's hereditary.
Fran: Oh, that's nothing. On my father's side, they all have webbed toes. But excellent swimmers!
Fran: Now I know the love of a child.
Sylvia: You could get fired from all this love.
Fran: Whoa, what'd I do?
Sylvia: She's too emotionally attached to you.
Fran: No, she's not. I'm her nanny.
Sylvia: Meanwhile, I have a girl who comes twice a week to clean. If she left me tomorrow, would I take a limo to Haiti?
Fran: Honey, what are you doing here?
Grace: I was in the neighborhood.
Sylvia: Isn't she adorable! (To Grace) You want a scooter pie?
Fran: That's your first question?
Maxwell: I had my doubts about C.C., but she's full of surprises.
Fran: Uh huh, she's a regular box of crackerjack.
Maxwell: Niles, get rid of this. (Takes a cotton ball out of his mouth and puts it in Niles hand)
Niles: Oh, goody. Four more of these and I'll have a set.
Fran: Why aren't you at the zoo?
Sylvia: Maybe she's allergic. You know, your uncle Marvin's allergic to peacocks, there are no shots for that!
Fran: Ma, your mouth's moving but I have no idea what you're talking about!
C.C.: I think the highlight was when Brighton threw up in my helmet.
Niles: And it's so tricky getting vomit out of pith.
Fran: (To Maxwell) What are you going to do when your teeth fall out?
Niles: I suppose I'll be meastercating for him.
Fran: I hope you get time and a half for that.
C.C.: Nanny Fine's certainly made herself at home.
Maxwell: Yes, she's turning out to be an absolute treasure!
C.C.: How lucky for us all that you dug her up! I'm just worried the children are getting too attached.
Maxwell: She's the nanny, C.C., that's kind of the point.
Fran: Have fun at school today, Gracie!
Grace: How can I when the polar ice caps are melting?
Fran: Not to worry, I put a snorkel in your lunchbox!
Sylvia: Looking for someone?
Fran: Have you seen Gracie, Ma?
Sylvia: If she's three foot two and not a Jew, she's in the powder room, crying her little eyes out.
Sylvia: (to Gracie) Here, darling. Have another cookie.
Fran: Ma, enough. She's gonna pop.
Sylvia: Oh, let me spoil her. At the rate you're going, this could be my only grandchild.
Fran: You're a wonderful woman, and I wish you well, but if you ever hurt my kids again, they'll be wiping your blue blood off the walls. And I mean that in the nicest possible way.
Maxwell: Miss Fine, the children were counting on going to the zoo.
Fran: Well, Miss Babcock can still take them.
Gracie: This is just how my nightmare started...
Fran: (Zipping Sylvia into a too tight dress with six interlaced straps) Oh, I don't know about these straps Ma... ya look like a ham!
Sylvia: The salesgirl said I looked like a dream.
Fran: Maybe Oscar Mayer's.
Fran: Oh come on. Stop being such a big fat baby. You got a toothache you go to a dentist.
Maxwell: I don't have a toothache, I just slept on it wrong.
Fran: Who sleeps on a tooth? (To Grace) Unless you're waiting for a fairy. (To Maxwell) Now open up, let me take a look.
Maxwell: Miss Fine, it's my mouth and I reserve the right to keep it shut. An option you might consider from time to time.
C.C.: Maxwell, I adore children. It's a natural thing, a female thing.
Niles: I hear some females eat their young.
Fran: (shouting) MR. SHEFFIELD, MISS BABCOCK'S HERE!!!!!
C.C.: Nanny Fine, please. They've already freed Willy.
Gracie: I wanted to see the petting zoo.
C.C.: Well we would've been able to if your sister didn't have to go to the bathroom every 15 minutes. I swear her bladder must be the size of a walnut.
Maggie: Fran says it's not small, it's just tilted.
Gracie: I ran away. I took a limo.
Fran: (to Sylvia) I ran away, I took a banana.
Gracie: I don't want to go to the Zoo. I had nightmares about fangs, claws and snarling.
Maggie: Gracie, they keep the animals in cages.
Brighton: (to Maggie) She's talking about C.C.
Gracie: So you don't just do it for the money?
Fran: Believe me, but the time they take out State, and Federal, and FICA, its a labor of love.
Fran: Its true, I do get paid for taking care of you, but I don't get paid extra for loving you and I do love you.
Gracie: I love you too.
The end credits of this episode shows Fran and C.C. watching the tapdancing kid perform.
In this episode we learn that the Sheffield Mansion is located on Park Avenue. In real life, the outside scenario is the outside of the French Embassy.
Fran: I don't know about these straps, Ma. You look like a ham. Sylvia: The salesgirl said I look like a dream.
Fran: Maybe Oscar Mayer's.
Oscar Meyer is an American meat and cold cut production company, owned by Kraft Foods, known for its hot dogs, bologna, bacon and Lunchables products.
Fran mocks C.C. by calling her Mister Rogers because of her less than friendly demeanor. This is a reference to the famous children's TV series Mister Rogers' Neighborhood in which Fred Rogers teaches children the important issues of life, such as being friendly, sharing, etc.
C.C.: Does Donna Reed ever give it a rest?
Donna Reed was best known for playing an extremely wholesome housewife on "The Donna Reed Show" from 1958-1966. She also played Mary Bailey in "It's a Wonderful Life".
The episode title is a play on the traditional wedding song, Here Comes the Bride.
