Fran is obsessing about not being pregnant. To get her mind off this fact, Maxwell thinks Fran needs to get away on a vacation. She doesn't really want to, until Maxwell tells her that he has managed to get the whole family invited to a state dinner in Aspen with President Bill Clinton. In Aspen, Fran makes quite the impression on the Clintons, whereas Maxwell came across as a babbling idiot. Fran made such an impression that the Clintons have invited her to go skiing with them. The problem: Fran doesn't know how to ski. After Fran has some problems at ski school, Maxwell ends up teaching her. However in a mishap, Fran and Maxwell get caught in an out of bounds area and are lost. To keep warm, Fran and Maxwell decide to get close to each other. They are rescued, and Fran eventually learns how to ski. But just as she's about to go skiing with the Clintons, Fran instead decides to spend time with Maxwell since she learned that their time lost was productive in more ways than one. Written by
