Fran, with Brighton in tow, is mugged in the park. Although they're physically unharmed, they're both traumatized. In the process, Fran's purse was stolen. Maxwell and C.C. also end up being traumatized because Fran mistook a priceless piece of Shakespeare's notebook on Maxwell's desk for her errand list, the parchment which ended up being in her stolen purse. Maxwell was intending on loaning the parchment to a museum for a sold out benefit. They may all be in luck when the police catch who they believe to be the mugger. Despite the mugger having a stocking over his head at the time, Fran is able to identify him in a line-up. But her purse and its contents are gone forever. Further to Fran's horror, the mugger is ordered to do community service and is let go. But in another run-in with the mugger at the park, Fran finds a more caring individual who returns the Shakespeare parchment. But does he have ulterior motives? Meanwhile, Brighton needs to get a pair a glasses. Written by
