Man at Party


Fran and Val are lamenting their current and in the foreseeable future single status. To rectify this problem, they decide to hold a singles party at Benny's Clam Bar. It looks like it's going to be a success for the two as the registered list is fifteen men for every woman. When they hear that Benny's Clam Bar has burned down, Fran, against her better judgment, takes the opportunity of Maxwell and C.C.'s business trip to Boston (with Brighton and Grace in tow) to hold the party at the house. Unfortunately for Fran, the men are mostly losers. Unfortunately for Fran, the one man she is interested in, Jeff, is a police officer who arrests her for not having a business license. And unfortunately for Fran, Maxwell comes home early to find the obvious remains of a wild party at the house, which he strictly forbade prior to leaving. He assumes that Maggie was the one who held the party. Although Fran tries to correct Maxwell's misassumption, Maggie takes the blame to save Fran's job. ... Written by Huggo
