In this episode we see Fran telling Morgan Faulkner they attended Hillcrest High together, but in "Material Fran" she tells Kathy they went to Flushing High together.
In the scene in the kitchen, Fran takes a sip of her milk and sets it down on the right side of the plate of cookies. It is considerably less than half full. She looks down at her watch, and Brighton walks into the kitchen. The glass of milk miraculously moves to the left side of the plate, and is half full again.
When Sylvia arrives to confront the woman who might be Fran's birth mother, she bursts in and says "You're black?" and points with her right hand, while holding her purse with her left. However, in the long shot, she is pointing with her left hand and holding the purse in her right hand.
While Fran is getting pulled over by the policeman, she turns the steering wheel to the left. However, she is not driving in England, so shouldn't she be turning the wheel to the right?
When Fran gets pulled over, she tells the officer that she was driving with her arms. However, when she was applying her makeup, her arms were not on the steering wheel, so it gave the illusion that the car was driving itself.
During the fantasy sequence, Charles Shaughnessy impersonates the voice of classic movie star Cary Grant. Interesting choice, since Cary Grant did not star in detective films.
C.C.: I am the meat in an idiot sandwich.
In The Nanny Reunion, "A Nosh to Remember", Lauren Lane (C.C.) stated that this was her favourite line in the series.
On the double-date, C.C. says she's going to pick out a wine, but you can see they already have glasses of wine on the table.
In the hallway when Niles is dusting paintings on the wall, Grandma Eloise points to a spot that he had missed. However, the camera changes angles and she is shown pointing at the opposite wall from where he was dusting.
This isn't so much a goof as an editing error. The joke at the end of the last scene is that Fran, knowing CC is in the store, turns on the PA system in order for Miss Babcock to hear Max announce he loves Fran, and CC lets out a huge "Nooooo!" When this episode has been repeated, both in syndication and in on Lifetime, the scream is almost completely edited out when the show cuts to a commercial, thereby ruining the punchline.
Hurricane season is from June 1 to November 30, and most hurricanes usually occur from August to October. It is highly unlikely that a hurricane would occur in December, especially near Christmas.
Hurricanes are supposed to cut out all of the power; why then are lights still on in Fran and Val's room during the ordeal?
When Niles is mixing a chocolate egg creme for Sylvia and walks over to stand next to Fran, the drink is very light, but when Sylvia comes back in and says her line while taking the drink from Niles, it's suddenly very dark chocolate, yet when Sylvia heads out the door, it's very light again.
When Sylvia threatens to kill herself after learning Fran has a tattoo by throwing herself in the oven, she pulls out a plate of crab cakes from the oven and asks Niles if they're done baking. First of all, if the crab cakes were baking in the oven, they should have been on a cookie sheet, not a plate, and second, if Sylvia pulled a hot tray out of the oven without any protection, like an oven mitt, she should have burned her hands!
Fran is proposed to for the fourth time.
In this episode Jay Leno shows his autobiography to Fran, who replies by showing him a brand new book and audio tape by Fran Drescher. She does not name the author but shows the cover of the book and tape, clearly showing a picture of Fran Drescher.
At the end of the episode, Max complains to Fran that Jay Leno blames them for his dog getting pregnant because Fran couldn't separate Leno's dog from Chester. In the episode "A Pup In Paris," C.C. snaps at Niles that he should watch what he says, "or I'll fix you like I fixed the dog". If C.C. neutered Chester, it's impossible for him to get another dog pregnant.
Gracie says she and Brighton go to different schools, yet their school uniforms look exactly alike.
When Niles walks in Fran and Maxwell making out on his desk, just before James and Joan walk in you can see Charles taking a post-it (to post on Fran's butt).
When Fran is serving lemonade to Joan, the glass is half full, then empty, then half full again.
