There have been a slew of dog-nappings of late, the latest victim being C.C.'s dog, Chester. Chester was nabbed under Fran's care. Fran learns from the police that the suspected perpetrators are a husband/wife team. Little does Fran realize that the male thief is Brian, the guy who hit on her just before the dog-napping. His female counterpart is indeed his not too bright wife, Arianna. During the ransom call, Fran picks up on a piece of information that leads her and Val to Brian and Arianna's apartment, but the two sleuths end up being hostages themselves. Maxwell decides to take charge to get back his nanny. As Maxwell follows the ransom demands, Fran manages to save herself and Val with a little help from a secret weapon provided by Yetta. Meanwhile, the Fines are preparing for Yetta's wedding shower. Written by Huggo
