Maxwell rushes Fran out of the house so that they can get to a premier on time. Maxwell regrets this decision as he has to endure the wrath of Fran when she is featured in Gloss magazine as a fashion don't solely because of the handbag Maxwell grabbed for her as they were leaving the house. To make it up to her and to prove that she does have fashion sense, Maxwell hires her as costume designer for a one-scene benefit production he is mounting of Our Town. After a business meeting with Fran - which includes a game of footsie - Maxwell is concerned that perhaps he did let his unspoken romantic feelings for Fran get in the way of his professional judgment. With some help from her cousin Toddy, Fran reinvents the look of Our Town, much to Maxwell's chagrin. However cousin Toddy has a few fans of his own that may help Fran and Maxwell over the risky move. Written by Huggo

C.C. tells Fran her picture is on page 63, but when Fran looks the picture the open page is too close to the cover that it could be page 63. Also when Maggie showed the picture to Maxwell before that, she clearly had a different page open. See more »


Chastity Claire 'C.C.' Babcock: [finishing an argument about Maxwell letting Fran be a supervisor for costumes in a production of 'Our Town'; Niles is already approaching her from behind] If you insist on doing this, then you do the benefit alone, because I'm out of here!
Niles: [throwing C.C.'s coat on her shoulders] Hasta la vista, baby.
