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 Huggo

Good episode
11 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

Most all THE NANNY series were good episodes. Funny, witty, eye candy for the guys, eye candy for the girls. Sometimes just a little too silly for my taste. But satisfying enough to come back and see more. For six years Fran and crowd graced our airways. Now it is rerun after rerun. Still a well done story. I recommend you watch when you can. Watch, enjoy, make your own mind up.

The series can be seen on Lifetime TV, and a lot of local stations. If you can stand Fran's voice then you can stand almost anything. Here's to six years of a fine show, and 60 years of boring reruns, like I LOve Lucy is now.
