Like most other episodes, the unique characters never failed to make me laugh. Fran argues with a woman at a flower shop over a bouquet of tulips, and locks her in a room. Much to her dismay, she runs into the woman again at the mansion, where she discovers that she is actually Maxwell's mother, Elizabeth. Elizabeth naturally wants to fire Fran, and Maxwell refuses. He disobeys his tyrant mother, and rebels by asking Fran to marry him. Although Fran goes overboard by making plans, she realizes that Maxwell only proposed to her to anger his mother. This will mark the beginning of the many things Maxwell will do that will be thrown back in his face for many episodes to come.
The writing is absolutely fabulous, including many zingers and one-liners guaranteed to make you laugh. This episode never moves at a slow pace, and is thoroughly entertaining from start to finish.
