There is no water in the Sheffield house, and with his regular plumber away, Maxwell, against his better judgment, allows Fran to call in her very elderly plumber cousin Irving to fix the pipes. With Irving comes his adolescent granddaughter, Tiffany. Against this backdrop, much is happening in the Sheffield house that day. Maxwell and C.C. are auditioning for showgirls, much to Brighton, Niles and Maxwell's delight. And Maxwell doesn't allow fourteen year old Maggie to attend her first ever make out party. However he is thrilled when he finds out that eleven year old Brighton had his first grown up make out session with Tiffany. Fran makes Maxwell realize that he is setting a double standard for his gender and age different children. Later, after the pipes are fixed, Fran gets a thrill of her own, much to Maxwell's embarrassment. Written by Huggo
