Storyline

Maxwell and Fran face a difference in opinion on how to raise the children when Maxwell reverses a decision Fran made regarding not allowing Brighton to go to the mall. Fran makes Maxwell realize that Brighton was using the old ploy of dividing and conquering. Another difference they face is during the party following the opening on Maxwell and C.C.'s new play, a musical version of Norma Rae (1979). The busboys at the hotel where the reception is being held are on strike. Fran refuses to cross the picket line, which makes Maxwell try to forcibly make her cross. The media has a field day with the issue, especially considering the irony with regard to the subject matter of Norma Rae. Maxwell and C.C. decide to diffuse the issue by presenting their side of the story on Sally Jessy Raphael's talk show. But Sally's show offers Fran a counterpoint argument. Realistically, this forum allows both Fran and Maxwell to discuss deeper feelings around the issue. Written by Huggo

Maxwell Sheffield: [with a painful look on his face] One part of me says, 'get out the window, quick', and the other part just has to know why.
Fran Fine: Because they divide and separate.
Maxwell Sheffield: Ah!
Fran Fine: Your mother never told you that?
