  • Quotes

    • Brighton: That's amazing she looks just like you!
      Fran: Really? (Pushes her hair back) Well maybe in about ten years!

    • Bobbie: You, don't talk.
      Fran: I'm sorry, did you lose your train of thought?
      Bobbie: No it's just your voice is so annoying, honey.

    • Niles: Miss Fine, it's been two weeks. The mourning period has to end!
      Fran: (Sniffling) It's just so tragic!
      Niles: A lot of people screw up their first date.

    • C.C.: Don't you see, Bobbi Flekman is an amalgamation of the two of us. She is everything he is searching for in a woman. (Points to herself) Beauty, brains, and (Points to Fran) a slut.
      Fran: Hey! You know, you may be onto something.

    • Fran: Forget it! He's never going to ask me out again.
      C.C.: It's only because he's torn between you and the woman he loves.
      Fran: Who?
      C.C.: ME!

    • Brighton: (about a favor Fran helped him with) Oh, by the way, how can I thank you for getting Dad to say yes.
      Fran: (holding up the ring finger on her left hand) Get your Dad to say yes.

    • Fran: (While pretending to be Bobbie Fleckman) Well, it's obvious that you're crazy about me, but it's just never going to happen. I mean, I'm old enough to be... that adorable nanny's mother!

    • Sylvia: Don't give up. So you're in a buffet, and there's one piece of cheesecake left, and some obnoxoious woman tries to grab it. What do you do?
      Fran: Cut in front of you, Ma.

    • Fran: Oh, you know what's wrong with this whole relationship between me and Mr. Sheffield, don't you?
      Val: Hmm?
      Fran: I'm not in it!

    • C.C.: (To Fran) So you blew it. Are you going to let one lousy date discourage you? You wuss. I didn't even let his wife stand in my way. You think I'm pathetic now... you should've seen me as her maid of honor!

    • Bobbie Fleckman: (To C.C.) Honey, you look like a smart woman. You're not, but you look like one.

    • Bobbie Fleckman: Oh, they're so sweet, they're so fresh... come on, they're the hottest band in town. Don't you love Wu Tang Clan?
      Fran: Uh, with chicken or pork?

    • Brighton: Hey, is it true back then people used to listen to their music on some sort of primitive, large black vinyl disc?
      Fran: Only when we weren't enjoying our favorite pastime "child hurling".

    • Maggie: Brighton, you are so pathetic. (To Fran) I mean he walks around the house all day with his guitar and he doesn't even know how to play.
      Brighton: Hey, you wear a bra.
      Maggie: Hey, at least I've actually seen one!
