  • Quotes

    • Maxwell: My one regret is this cable will snap before I get my hands around your neck!
      Fran: That's your one regret? This coming from a man who mounted a revival of "Fiddler on the Roof" with Lionel Wendt?
      Maxwell: MISS FINE!

    • Maxwell: I can't believe Sydney's gay. I made such an idiot out of myself. At least she doesn't know how I feel about her.
      Fran: Well, you know, women have sixth sense about these things-
      Maxwell: You told her?!
      Fran: Oh yeah.

    • Niles: Are you worried about your position?
      Fran: (Crosses her legs) Oh Niles, you dog, you!
      Niles: In the household, Miss Fine.
      Fran: What, I'm worried some woman's going to come in and make the kids lunch and take em to school? I don't do that.

    • Fran: You took off you wedding ring!
      Maxwell: How could you tell that? My bloody hand's in my pocket.
      Fran: I can spot a man without a wedding ring a mile away! (Looks out the door) There's one. There's another... and another one! What the hell am I doing in here?

    • Niles: I finally talked him out of the leather pants. Then I spent the next hour getting him out of the leather pants.
      Fran: It took you an hour to get pants off a man? Next time try wearing a little Chanel No. 5 and a tube top.

    • Fran: Oh my God!
      Maxwell: What? Another rat?
      Fran: Worse. There's an echo in here. I just heard my own voice.

    • (Maxwell & Fran are trapped in an elevator in pitch black)
      Maxwell: It's gonna be okay, Miss Fine. What are you doing?
      Fran: I'm looking for the emergency phone!
      Maxwell: That's... not... it...
      Fran: Oh. Well then, I'd better not stop talking into it.

    • Sydney: I just assumed, you're over 30, never been married and there's no man in your life.
      Fran: Oh honey, I'm not gay - I'm just pathetic!

    • (The phone rings)
      Niles: It might be that fabulous man you were telling your mother about.
      Fran: No, he wouldn't call.
      Niles: Why not?
      Fran: I made him up!
