    • QUOTES (9)

      • Grace: You have no idea how cruel children can be.
        Fran: Honey, I've had this voice since the second grade. Need I say more?

      • C.C.: Niles, move it with the food. These society women are vultures. Where's the paté?
        Niles: Why don't you just lie on the floor and let them peck at your liver?!

      • Fran: Oh, no. I couldn't date anyone just 'cause he was rich.
        Katherine: What are you, prejudiced? You're gonna hold it against him because he's got two Ferraris?
        Fran: Oh, well... it's not really his fault.
        Katherine: A house in Monte Carlo?
        Fran: When did I get so intolerant?
        Katherine: A private jet and a diamond mine.
        Fran: Oh, you're right. I'm a bigot! I should be ashamed of myself! I'm gonna have to work through it.

      • Fran: Meanwhile, explain to me "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds". "The girl with colitis goes by"? I always thought that was very distasteful.
        Maxwell: That's "the girl with kaleidescope eyes", Miss Fine.
        Fran: Oooooh! Leave it to Flushing to turn a beautiful image into a bowel dysfunction.

      • Katherine: I sued him.
        Fran: Wow! How romantic!
        Katherine: He rear-ended me.
        Val: (Lifts up hands, and shakes her head) Oh, I'm not into that.
        Katherine: (To Val) NOW I remember you!

      • Katherine: What are you doing here?
        Fran: I'm the nanny.
        Katherine (Fakes a smile): Oh!
        Fran: What?
        Katherine: Mmmm... nothing! You know, I mean, it's just that everybody thought you were really going places.
        Fran: Oh. Well I showed them!

      • Fran: But diamonds are a girl's best friend and now I'm all alone.
        Niles: Ohhh, you've still got plenty of friends - Mr. Rhinestone and Mr. Zircon come to mind.

      • Val: I thought the Eiffel Tower leaned.
        Fran: Val... that's Big Ben.

      • C.C.: Oh my God Nanny Fine, don't tell me you're wearing that cheap tacky dress to meet Richard Porter's oldest friend? I wouldn't be caught dead in that dress.
        Niles: You'd have to be dead six months to fit into it.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • Kathy refers to Niles as Mr. French. This is a reference to the character by the same name from the show Family Affair. Mr. French was a very English gentleman's gentleman who cared for the domestic needs of highly paid consulting engineer, Bill Davis.

      • Title reference: The title of this episode refers to Madonna's hit Material Girl.

      • Fran: I want to buy the vowels. I want to solve the puzzle!

        This is an allusion to Wheel of Fortune, the longest-running syndicated game show in American television history.

      • Fran: I want a relationship. A real relationship! Like Luke and Laura.

        This is an allusion to General Hospital. Luke and Laura are the signature couple in the show, and are the most popular couple in soap opera history.
