Storyline

C.C.'s pretentious professor brother, Noel, comes for a visit. Noel is a male version of C.C. and they have a very competitive relationship. Noel sees Fran as not being in the same intellectual class as himself. As a gag, Noel and C.C. decide to make a bet: that Noel can get Fran on the television game show Jeopardy! (1984) Because of the attention he is paying her, Fran believes that Noel is interested in her intellectually. Although he finds it a difficult task, Noel does manage for Fran to pass the test to get on the show. When Maxwell finds out about the bet, he first wants to rub Fran's nose in it as they had an argument about Noel and their common bond of intellectualism. However, when he see how excited Fran is, Maxwell decides instead to wish her luck on the show and crosses his fingers that she won't embarrass herself on national television. Fran does end up being one of the contestants, although she has a difficult time with the game. At least by the end of Double Jeopardy!,... Written by Huggo
