Rodney Pembroke, Maxwell's rich, boisterous friend, comes to New York for a visit. With Rodney, Fran sees probably one of the few times that Maxwell has ever let loose. During Rodney's visit, Maxwell is unexpectedly called away to London, but Rodney tells Fran that Maxwell forgot to give him an investment check for $1 million. Against C.C.'s advice, Fran does write Rodney the check. Shortly thereafter, Fran learns that Rodney is broke and has squandered away all his and other friends' money. When Fran asks for her money back, Rodney tells her a story about one bad investment he made which ruined his life and asks her to have a little faith. She does. When Maxwell returns from London, he already knows about Rodney's unfortunate financial situation, so Fran needs to tread lightly when she tells him she invested their $1 million with Rodney. Although Maxwell is upset with Fran for doing so, Rodney may come through for them in the end. Concurrent with Rodney's visit, Fran tries to impress... Written by Huggo
