This is one of my all-time favorite episodes of "The Nanny." There are so many surprise cameos, take-offs of other shows, twists and references to other shows that the cast has been in, it is simply great! Where do I begin?

Ann Morgan Guilbert played Milly Helper on the Dick Van Dyke Show and there is a scene where she "mistakes" members of the house as members of the Petrie house- including pointing out Milly Helper in the mirror. Funny!

BTW, the character of Yetta in series, The Nanny was a kick! Guilbert is a riot and stole every scene she was in! Later at the end of this episode, The Nanny cast do a take-off on The Dick Van Dyke Show (done in black and white), which ties in with this scene with Yetta and it is really cute! Charles Shaughnessy trying to talk like the character Robert Petrie- no kidding!

This episode is called, "The Rosie Show" therefore Rosie O'Donnell is on The Nanny. This of course is before any negative situations or publicity were mingled in her career and she was at the top. Fran becomes a temporary celeb because of her part on The Rosie Show, so C.C. becomes a temporary buddy to Fran- managing her and so-on. Also hilarious!

Hugh Grant is on this episode briefly. Donald Trump was on in a cameo appearance. His scene is actually funny and shows the side we seldom see from "The Don." At the end of this episode, Fran Dreschers real parents are on the show as well, as they did a few other times in the series. They did well in a quick but laughable bit.

The really excellent part of this episode is the re-enactment of the Dream Scene from Fiddler on the Roof.... Nanny style. It is awesome.

If you are a fan of The Nanny- you'll love this episode. If you are not a fan of The Nanny- chances are you'll still love this episode simply because of all of the extras that were crammed into this one 30-minute segment.

Gets a 9 from me!
