After Fran makes a witty remark regarding child rearing from the audience of _"Rosie O'Donnell Show, The" (1996)_, Rosie suggests that Fran become a regular weekly fixture on the show, responding to write-in questions on child rearing.

So Maxwell concocts a plan to pretend that he had a nightmare with Bubby Sophie telling Fran that she needs to quit the show or else life for everybody ... Written by
