In the episode Frannie's Choice (#121), Fran was getting married to her old boyfriend Danny, and the children got sad and angry because they knew Fran was going to leave them. In this episode Fran tells the kids that Dr. Kimble asked her to marry him, and they don't seem to mind at all. Actually they seem to be happy about it, and Maggie even asks if she can be a bridesmaid.
In the last scene Alex asks Fran her response. Fran starts to tell a long story and mentions Giza. Alex asks if that's her responds and she says no and continues. He gets upset and then she finally tells the answer which is Alexandria. However, in Final Jeopardy, Alex should not have asked her what her response was, he could have just looked at what she wrote down. In fact, in Final Jeopardy, the contestants do not say anything because Alex can just look at their responses.
In the last scene Fran calls the Jeopardy people about her missing box of Rice-a-Roni. But look closely and you'll notice that by the end of the scene she has all 6 boxes.
When Fran hit the Daily Double, it became open to all three contestants apparently. It should only have been Fran's question; she did not have to ring in.

At the end of the episode, when Yetta says "thank you for a lovely evening," look near the middle of the living room-a cast or crew member is seen walking through there. It can't be Maxwell, and it can't be Niles - he went through the hallway
