When attending her high school reunion, Fran bucks the trend: she's recently engaged while all her old colleagues are getting divorced. This fact gets Fran thinking about marriage in a serious way and decides to have a chat with Maxwell about what life will be like being married. One of the more important issues they discuss is having children beyond the existing brood of Maxwell's three. Fran wants to have children, whereas Maxwell does not. This places an obstacle between the two. But after discussing the pros and cons with Niles, Maxwell ultimately tells Fran that they'll first work on being a couple of two before adding more to the mix in the future. Meanwhile, C.C. is away which puts Niles in a depressed funk. And Grace, after speaking to a friend in a similar situation and after finding a brochure for the institution, thinks that Maxwell and Fran are going to send her to boarding school after they get married.
