Episode cast overview:
Lauren Lane ...
Rachel Chagall ...
Dr. Frankie Cresitelli
Fred, the pharmacist


With free tickets in hand received from Val, Fran asks Maxwell out on what would be their second date, this time specifically to a Michael Bolton CD launch party. Maxwell accepts with enthusiasm. Before the date, Fran develops an itchy rash all over her body which no over-the-counter pharmaceutical will cure. Even this rash will not stop her from going out on the date, during which she uses every possible opportunity to relieve her body itch rubbing up against whatever or whomever is near, including Maxwell (who thinks she's just being amorous) and a surprised Michael Bolton. Just as Maxwell and she are going to take the date to a more sexual level, Fran can no longer take the itch and sneaks off to the hospital emergency ward, where she is horrified to see who the attending doctor is. Without checking, the doctor gives her a shot of cortisone which relieves the rash but causes an allergic reaction. The manifestation of the reaction is more off-putting to Maxwell than the rash ever ... Written by Huggo

Fran Fine: [looking the mark on her neck in the mirror in horror] What is that?
Sylvia Fine: Enough already. You don't have to hide. You can have a hickey at your age. You can have osteoporosis at your age.
