Maxwell brings a celebrity back to the house to recuperate following some plastic surgery. The celebrity's face is wrapped in bandages, so her identity is a mystery, which is killing Fran as Maxwell won't tell her who she is. Not even C.C. knows who it is. The guest bedroom is off limits to everyone in the house except Niles, who Fran learns knows who it is. Fran breaks into the guest bedroom, but soon gets caught by Maxwell. But the bedridden guest reveals her identity. Although Fran is sworn to secrecy, she tells Val, who in turn tells her confessor priest. News leaks out to the media, who stake out the house, leaving the celebrity a virtual prisoner in the house. Fran devises a plan to get the celebrity out of the house. Although the plan is a bad one, it is at least a long enough diversion to accomplish the goal. Although the celebrity manages to get away, Maxwell is still mad a Fran for the leak. But he has to eat his words when they all find out how the information got leaked. Written by Huggo
