Lauren Lane ...
Yetta Rosenberg (as Ann Guilbert)
Rachel Chagall ...
Fred, the pharmacist


Niles is in a foul mood. His mood gets worse when he drops a piece of paper, which Fran picks up and reads (but says she didn't). The paper looks like a murder plot. Thinking him a murderer, Fran realizes she truly knows nothing about Niles. Fran and Val decide to snoop around his bedroom to see if they can find any evidence of the murder he's going to commit. Later, Fran and Niles end up in the house by themselves. Fran fears for her life because she knows that Niles knows that she was in his bedroom, and that she read his piece of paper. Niles tells her as much and even says that he knows that Fran knows what's going on. Or does she? Meanwhile, Grace brings a case of lice into the Sheffield household. Maggie, Brighton and Fran all end up getting it as well, but not Maxwell. Fran believes this is a sign that Maxwell doesn't spend enough time with his children. Written by Huggo
