When Maggie states that she wants to get a tattoo - which Fran will not allow - it comes to light via Val that Fran got a tattoo when they were in high school. Sylvia is mortified. Although Maxwell also doesn't want Maggie to get a tattoo, he is quite intrigued about Fran's since he doesn't know where it is and thus it must be somewhere on her body hidden underneath what little clothing she usually wears (it's on her derrière). To appease Sylvia, Fran makes an appointment with a doctor to get it removed, but she has no intention of actually going through with it since Maxwell is so intrigued by it. Although she doesn't tell him, Fran decides she's going to show it to Maxwell by organizing a family beach vacation where she'll wear a thong to show it off. After a chat with Grace, Fran changes her mind as she doesn't think this the best time to lure Maxwell into a sexual relationship. However, they're both now so hot and bothered that they have to relieve their sexual energies in another... Written by
