  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Maxwell: (Imitating Niles) "No, don't do Funny Girl, Barbra's so obvious. Do Fiddler instead!"
      Niles: Sir, I said the whole dream idea was ridiculous. Stop underestimating Miss Fine's intelligence and be honest with her for a change. Tell her how you feel. Oh my god, that's the thing! You told her how you felt and then you took it back! Oh, no, you'd never be that stupid.

    • Maxwell: Niles, fetch me a bottle of champagne would you?
      Niles: To toast Miss Fine's success?
      Maxwell: No. To shoot my eye out with the cork!

    • Maxwell: Where have you been? Hanging with the hip crowd?
      Fran: No, I was visiting Grandma Yetta. Th hip replacement crowd.

    • Maxwell: What are you doing here?
      Fran: Well, I heard moaning and screaming coming from your room and I figured I should be a part of it.

    • Maxwell: Niles if someone close to you is leaving, how would you make them stay?
      Niles: Oh sir, I'm not going anywhere.
      Maxwell: Not you, you blithering idiot! Miss Fine. (The doorbell rings, Niles just stands there) Well aren't you going to get that?
      Niles: Oh, is that what that was? I wouldn't know since I'm such a blithering idiot.

    • Niles: Ms. Fine and Ms. Babcock walking arm-in arm. Isn't that one of the Biblical signs of the Apocalypse?

  • NOTES (5)

    • This episode was nominated for the 1997 Emmy Award for "Outstanding Costuming for a Series".

    • The segments with Fran, Grace and Rosie O'Donnell were taped about a year before the rest of the show. This is highly noticeable from the length of Grace's hair. In the clips that involve Rosie, Grace is noticeably younger and has hair that falls above her shoulders. In the rest of the show, Grace's hair is mid-arm length.

    • In the scene where Yetta confuses a dream for The Dick Van Dyke Show opening, she points at herself on the mirror and says: "Look, there's Millie!". Of course that's an inside joke, since Ann Guilbert (Yetta) played Millie on that show. Also, the last scene is a takeoff on The Dick Van Dyke Show where Fran becomes Laura, Max becomes Rob, Niles becomes Melvin and C.C. becomes Sally.

    • Hugh Grant makes a special cameo appearance on the Rosie O'Donnell Show, but is not credited for his appearance of The Nanny. The clip was taken from a Rosie show taped around the time this episode aired. Compare Rosie's desk when she talks to Hugh with the one seen a little later to see a small difference.

    • The retired couple from Florida that replace Fran on The Rosie O'Donnell Show are played by Fran Drescher's real life parents, Morty and Sylvia Drescher, who at the time really were regulars on The Rosie O'Donnell Show.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Maxwell's "dream" is a direct send up to the musical number "Tevye's Dream" from Fiddler on the Roof. In the original play, Tevye tells his wife he had a terrible nightmare concerning the marriage of their daughter, and in the musical number that follows, Tevye is warned by a scary ghost what will happen if he let's his daughter marry the butcher instead of the tailor.

    • Fran recites the line from the 1942 movie Casablanca, "We'll always have Paris".
