Fran is drowning in lies. She's lying to get Gracie into a classy prep school, which in turn a friend of Maxwell lies to Fran to get her to give him a million dollar investment. What is Fran to do? I really don't know.
Like every Nanny episode, this one is hilarious as well.
Fran is trying her best to convince an exclusive school to let Gracie join, even telling the school that she is related to one of the three Stooges. At the same time, one of Maxwell's British friends, Rodney Pemrook (played by Maxwel Caulfield, comes in town asking for $1,000,000 towards his investment. Behind Maxwell's back, Fran gives him the check, only to later find out that Rodney is dead broke. Fran uses her best tuition tie everything into a happy ending.
Great, but pointless, storyline. I haven't laughed so hard for so long. C.C. and Niles really does it for me. And when Fran starts talking to herself in the mirror, only to be replaced by her mother, I could hardly breath I was laughing so hard. Probably one of the best episodes of this season.
