Storyline

Two traumatic experiences happen to the Sheffield household. First, Maxwell's tough, proper and judgmental grandmother, Eloise, comes for a visit, which puts the entire household on its collective toes. And second, Danny Imperiali, Fran's ex-fiancé, dies from an allergic reaction to body waxing. At Danny's funeral, Fran meets a gay man, Harvey, whose life story worries Fran for herself: after his lover's death, his widower's family did not acknowledge their relationship. In light of Eloise's visit and the way Maxwell has hidden her from his grandmother, Fran thinks this will happen to her if Maxwell dies. Feeling like she no longer has a future at the Sheffield house, Fran quits and takes a job at a department store cosmetics counter. Maxwell wants her back but has to be careful about what he says around Grandma Eloise. Meanwhile, Maxwell finally tells Niles what he said to Fran on the plane and took back. Written by Huggo

Trivia

The premise of The Nanny, as sung in the intro song, is that "her boyfriend kicked her out" because he chose another woman over her. In The Nanny: Danny's Dead and Who's Got the Will? (1997) that woman is revealed as Heather Bibelot, and she is played by Pamela Anderson, who will reprise her role later in the series. See more »

Goofs

When Fran drops her sandwich and olives into Danny's coffin, one olive is left on her plate - in one view. Then the view changes and there is no olive on the plate. Then the olive reappears and disappears again. See more »
