Val gives Fran some devastating news: Fran's ex-fiancé, Danny Imperiali, is getting married. What's worse, he's getting married to Fran's rival, Heather Biblow. To relieve her depression, Fran goes on a shopping spree. Maxwell is concerned that Fran has a bigger problem of being a shopaholic. Fran finally admits to it when she sees one specific item amongst her many purchases that she never would have bought in her right mind. She decides to attend Shoppers Anonymous, and goes through major shopping withdrawal. She has some good times and bad times during this withdrawal. But she finally admits to Maxwell that the shopping is only a symptom of the want to find some real love in her life. Maxwell inadvertently helps her with this specific problem. Although happy, Fran would be so much happier if she remembered what Maxwell did. Written by Huggo
