    • QUOTES (15)

      • Fran: She's upstairs tapping her brains out like a deranged Anne Miller!
        Niles: That's redundant.

      • Fran: She's been tapping for hours! I tell you, it's unheard of!
        Niles: I'll say. I just waxed the floor.

      • Maxwell: Who did the wardrobe, A&P?
        Fran: I had a choice of paper or plastic, but you know they really discourage plastic bags on kids' heads.

      • Brighton: I can't believe Dad made us come.
        Maggie: This is gonna be so lame.
        Niles: Children, this is your sister's big night. We should support her.
        Brighton: I brought cards.
        Niles: I'll deal.

      • Fran: Mr. Sheffield, can the producer fire the director?
        Maxwell: Yes.
        Fran: Ohh?
        Maxwell: As easily as the father can fire the nanny.
        Fran: Oh.

      • Maxwell: My father pushed me and look where I am today.
        Fran: 3000 miles and an ocean away!

      • Andrea: My mother says my voice is a gift.
        Maxwell: Well, return it.

      • Fran: Don't run with that sign, you could put an eye out! I just gave my first piece of direction!
        Niles: And I was there.

      • Fran: Me? But I don't know anything about theater.
        Maxwell: Odd, that's never stopped you from doing anything.

      • Maxwell: This is Emma Truesdale, Lexington's Head Mistress.
        Fran: Oh, head mistress. (Quietly) Honey, you're living in a dream world. No matter what they say, they never leave their wives.

      • Fran: Wasn't it sweet how they hung the arts and crafts out in the hall? I tell you that Pablo, very talented kid!
        Maxwell: That was a Picasso, Miss Fine.
        Fran: An adult did those? Eh.

      • Fran: You get to play with other kids, wear makeup, and it's a great way to get guys.
        Grace: What do I do with them once I get them?
        Fran: Let's not get ahead of ourselves.

      • Fran: What do you think, Mags?
        Maggie: The black one. Smaller price tags are easier to hide and you can still return it.
        Fran: Very good! I tell you, at this age, they're like a sponge.
        Brighton: With almost as much personality!

      • Brighton: Niles, this steak is a little tough.
        Niles: So is life. And then you die.

      • Maxwell: Why are you so dressed up for a P.T.A. meeting?
        Fran: Because some of those P's and T's could be lonely he's.
        Niles: You've certainly got the A for it.
