      • Fran: Mr. Sheffield, please.
        Maitre'D: Sorry, men only.
        Fran: What is this? The he-man women haters club?

      • C.C.: You want something, don't you? Nanny Fine wants something! Oh, yes! Yes! God this is good!
        Fran: Are you done? You want to have a ciggy butt and cuddle now?

      • Maxwell: When I was his age, I was a bit of a rebel myself.
        Fran: What'd you wear, brown socks and black shoes?
        Maxwell: Sometimes. Once I wore my dickie backwards. And no one knew!
        Fran: Watch out!

      • Brighton: Oh, this is bad. I'm dressed like Snap!
        Fran: Val once dated a guy who looked like Crackle. (To Niles) Unfortunately for her, he popped too quick.

      • Glenn: Are these fat-free cakes any good?
        Fran: Oh, they're deelish. Dip 'em in butter, fry on both sides, and if you dip em in whipped cream, it puts them right over the top!

      • Maxwell: Wilbur?!
        Fran: (Dressed as a man) No, it's me! Miss Fine!
        Maxwell: Oh, thank god. I was starting to feel attracted to you. I was beginning to think that 20 years in the musical theater had taken its toll.

      • Fran: Maggie, who does C.C. hate more, me or Niles?
        Maggie: God, this is hard. She hates both of you so much!

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • The Sound of Music

        As Brighton is about to walk out of the house with his new, more 'urban' look, he picks up his stereo and hits play. It begins BLASTING 'The Lonely Goatherd' from The Sound of Music, a musical starring Julie Andrews.

        It is pretty much the antithesis of urban-icity, and Brighton is justifiably embarrassed at the thought of walking to the park to have that playing.

      • The idea of dressing like a man to get into the club is taken from I Love Lucy. Fran gets the idea when she hears the theme song from the show. It's another tribute to Lucille Ball.

      • Fran: How do you like this dress?
        Maxwell: I like it. It's very festive.
        Fran: Festy? Carmen Miranda is festy!

        Carmen Miranda, Brazil's best international icon, was very famous in Hollywood during the 40's. One of her trade marks was a big fruit hat she wore during her acts.
