  • Quotes

    • Maxwell: Good morning my darling!
      Niles: Good morning to you my beautiful angel.

    • Fran: Oh, why is he straying?
      Niles: He's not straying. Believe me, if he didn't leave when he met your mother, he ain't goin' nowhere.

    • Maxwell: (about Fran and her pregnancy) Ever since she entered her third trimester, her mood swings have been lethal.
      Niles: Oh, I know. It's worse than when Sylvia gave up chocolate. That was the most unbearable hour of my life.

    • Fran Sheffield: (to Fran Drescher) I thought you were so fabulous in My Cousin Vinny! Where do you keep your Oscar?
      Fran Drescher: Uh, at Marisa Tomei's house.

    • (Fran Sheffield meets Fran Drescher at the front desk)
      Both Frans: Hi!
      Fran Sheffield: Excuse me, Miss Fran Drescher, but I am your biggest fan!
      Fran Drescher: Aw, thank you!
      Fran Sheffield: Oh my god, you really do talk like that!
      Fran Drescher: Who would make this up?
      (both Frans laugh nasally)

    • Fran: The bigger the hair, the smaller the hips.

    • Yetta: So tell me, where do you see me 20 years from now?
      Libby: I see you with a man in New York, and this young guy in Paris, and a jazz saxophonist in Chicago...
      Yetta: That sounds good!
      Libby: Are you an organ donor?

  • Notes

    • Nicholle Tom does not appear in this episode.

    • At the hotel lobby, Fran Drescher tells Fran Sheffield not to miss the series finale "next week". Obviously, at the time the writers did not know the show was going to undergo a hiatus and this episode would be broadcast after the finale.

    • The writers/producers did not want Val to end up alone, so that's why she hooked up with Fred, the closest thing on the show to a recurring character.

  • Allusions

    • When Fran meets Fran Drescher in the hotel lobby she congratulates her on winning an Oscar for My Cousin Vinny. For the movie Marisa Tomei won Best Actress in a Supporting Role.
