Maggie wants to start dating 25-year old John, a man eight years her senior. Maxwell isn't too happy about Maggie's wants, and he asks Fran to put a stop to Maggie and John's budding relationship. What Fran doesn't count on is that she falls for John's similarly aged friend, Mike McMullen. Maggie thinks that Fran is being hypocritical by forbidden her to see John, while she still gets to date Mike who is also eight years younger than her. But Fran knows that the age difference between John and Maggie will ultimately show itself and that Maggie in time will call it off herself. But the wait is just a little too long for Maxwell's liking. Meanwhile C.C. isn't getting any sleep as Niles is secretly plying her with copious amounts of caffeine. And the hearing in Maxwell's left ear is deteriorating, but being vain, he refuses both to acknowledge it and to go see a doctor about it. Written by Huggo

  • I'm glad you're here because I really need a woman to talk to.

C.C.: [Niles is silent. C.C. turns to Niles] Well, aren't you going to say anything?
Niles: What? You mean because she said that, you thought I was going to say something about you not being a woman?
Niles: That is beneath me, sir.
