Fran is hesitating telling Maxwell about being pregnant. But Sylvia, Niles and C.C. all know. Fran finally decides to set the right mood to tell him, and before she can blurt it out, he reiterates his stance that he doesn't want another child. In tears, she finally tells him; because she's so upset, she runs off. She commiserates with another mother in Central Park when she starts to have abdominal pains. She's rushed to the hospital. There, Maxwell reassures her that he does indeed want a child, something he didn't know until he learned they were about to have one. Unfortunately, Fran and Maxwell will have to wait for another pregnancy. Meanwhile, Brighton and Yetta go to the movie theater together. Unsure who's looking after who, they both lose each other, which they're afraid to tell anyone about. Written by Huggo

C.C.: [thinks Niles refers to Brighton lost] Yeah, yeah. ''Don't tell Maxwell about the kid''.

C.C.: What bombshell? It's not that a big deal.
Niles: You don't see Fran's pregnancy as the final nail in your coffin?
