    Fran decides to go on a cruise to meet men with Val, but Mr. Sheffield quickly changes her plans and buys the entire family (his and hers) tickets to board the ship. While Niles and C.C. fight over who has to sleep in the same room with Yetta, Fran is excited to meet the single guy a psychic said she would meet. Sylvia introduces her to Steve, a fantastic man who is later thrown out of the ship for being a clandestine. Lucky Fran that Mr. Sheffield steps in as her mambo dancing partner and Fran gets her dance on water with the man of her dreams – even if she doesn't realize that!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Val: Miss Babcock is out of her mind. I haven't seen one desperate, single woman on this whole cruise. Oh my god, gorgeous guy!
      Fran: How's my hair?
      Val: Who cares, he's mine!

    • Maxwell: I can't believe Miss Fine is going on a cruise just because some psychic told her she has a date with destiny. Anyone will tell you want to hear if you're paying them.
      Niles: Absolutely, sir. You are so witty, and handsome, and worldly...
      Maxwell: Oh, shut up!

    • Captain: Welcome aboard the century, ladies. I'm your captain.
      Fran: (With Yetta hanging on to her) How do you do? I'm Fran Fine and this is my birth control device.
      Yetta: You look so different without your blue uniform and your big handlebar moustache.
      Fran: Yetta, that's Cap'n Crunch.
      Yetta: I know who it is. That picture on the box must have been taken years ago.

    • C.C.: My confirmation was small, dignified. You know what we did?
      Niles: Lit a few candles and danced around the dead cat?

    • Maxwell: You can't trust him. He won't make you happy.
      Fran: I don't want to be happy. I want to be married.

    • Fran: They flew the whole family in.
      Niles: From where?
      Fran: The ceiling. They came down in a hot air balloon. It was like a Jewish Wizard of Oz.

    • (Niles is in the ship's casino playing Craps - he loses)
      C.C.: Hello Niles. I knew you were a high roller. Those Bermuda shorts you wore to the pool were a HUGE gamble!
      Niles: This from the woman who's flip-flops could transport refugees from Cuba. (he throws one of his chips)
      Game Host: 7's a winner!
      Niles: (to C.C.) Looks like my luck is changing. (C.C. leaves, Niles throws another chip)
      Game Host: Craps, you lose.
      (C.C. walks back over)
      C.C.: Come on! You have two chips left, go for it! Papa needs a new pair of oven mitts! Ha ha ha, hee hee...
      (Niles throws another chip and wins - he glares at C.C. suspiciously - throws another chip and wins again)
      Niles: Are you a good witch, or a bad witch?
