Tony's Bodyguard


Grace has a violin practicing play-date with Frankie Tatorri. Frankie's handsome and rich father, Tony, decides to have a play date with with an excited Fran. He quickly lavishes Fran with expensive gifts. Like Fran, Tony is another Queen's to Manhattan transplant with Queen's still deeply embedded into his personality. On their date, Fran realizes that Tony's personality traits similar to that of Vito Corleone are no coincidence. Because of who Tony is, Fran wants to break it off with him. However because of who he is, Fran is afraid that if she breaks it off with him, she may end up wearing a pair of cement boots at the bottom of the East River. Without knowing Tony's background, Maxwell inadvertently breaks up with Tony for Fran. But Maxwell ends up saving Fran's day when they all discover Tony has other aspirations rather than being a gangster. Meanwhile, Brighton makes Maggie his slave when he gets a hold of her diary.
