Storyline

To get her away from boys - Eric in particular - Maxwell decides to send Maggie to a convent in Switzerland for a study vacation over the Christmas holidays. Although Fran disagrees with Maxwell's strategy, Fran does believe that a trip would be beneficial for Maggie at this age, much like Fran's own time at a kibbutz in Israel at that age. That's enough to convince a previously skeptical Maggie - she's decided to go to a kibbutz. Fran does talk Maxwell into letting Maggie go. However, Fran changes her mind when she remembers back to why she had so much fun on her trip: that's when she lost her virginity. Fran tells Maxwell the truth. But Maxwell has the perfect solution: the entire family will commune on the kibbutz. However, Yossi, the boy to whom Fran lost her virginity, is still working on the kibbutz, as is his son, who does not fall far from the tree. Written by Huggo

Trivia

In the flashback we learn that Fran saw Maxwell on TV telling how he almost was about to do "musical with a bunch of people running around dressed as cats." Luckily his *secretary* Miss Babcock talked him out of it. The musical is, of course, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats, which debuted in London on 11 May 1981. Also, _Blue Lagoon (1980)_ has just been a hit and it is summer, so the flashback must take place in 1980. In the flashback Fran was 16 or 17. So in the actual episode, she is probably 32.
