Maxwell and C.C. are courting Margo Lange to star in their next production. Margo is a temperamental star whose biggest claim to fame is the beauty mark on her face. Five seconds with Fran and they all discover that the beauty mark is fake when Fran wipes it off her face. News of such could ruin Margo's career. Maxwell is worried that gossiping Fran will spill the beans, Fran who is offended by such an accusation. Fran does mention this fact to Sylvia in public, and who should overhear but entertainment reporter, Cindy Adams. Cindy not only publicly outs Margo, but names Fran as the source. Because of this, Maxwell feels he can no longer trust Fran. But Fran convinces Margo that there is a way to regain her career and her reputation in a business venture which would make both rich. Margo agrees with Fran's business plan, agrees to do Maxwell's play, and in turn, Maxwell forgives Fran. However the business deal falls through when Maxwell leaks the information of the business plan. ... Written by Huggo
