After having an argument about the issue, Fran and C.C. decide to get a professional and impartial opinion about which of the two is a better match for Maxwell. They decide to ask Dr. Joyce Brothers, who agrees (she wants to sell a musical idea to Maxwell). She comes to the house to observe the two women in action. Meanwhile, Niles' continued snooping around the house uncovers some misinformation, which results in a heated argument between himself and Maxwell with Niles ultimately quitting his job. C.C. manages to find a replacement butler named Trevor, who comes from the stiff upper class school of butlering, which is at odds with Fran, the kids and Sylvia.

However, Niles ends up wanting his old job back when Freida goes ... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Chastity Claire 'C.C.' Babcock: Well, it's been five days, and I haven't lost a single pound on this damned liquid diet.
Niles: Maybe because it's gin.
[C.C. grimaces at Niles, while she walks over to Fran who is eating a big piece of cake]
Chastity Claire 'C.C.' Babcock: Nanny Fine. How do you eat like that and stay so thin?
Fran Fine: I have a very fast metabolism. Every time I think about how old I am and the fact that I'm still single, my heart starts racing.
