Storyline

Sara's parent's are coming for a visit. Roberta and Ernest - Bert and Ernie as Fran calls them - are proper and somewhat uptight. Maxwell has told them nothing about Fran and himself. Upon Roberta and Ernest's arrival, Maxwell and Fran have to quickly tell them about the marriage to overcome an otherwise embarrassing situation. But Fran wants to win them over before she and Maxwell tell them about Fran adopting the kids. She thinks things are going well, that is until she tells them about the adoption. Roberta forbids it to happen and threatens to take Maxwell and Fran to court. Fran is worried that she will be proved unfit mother material due to all her past indiscretions in life. But perhaps Roberta and Ernest's concern has little to do with Fran as a person and more with their future connection with their grandchildren. Elsewhere, Yetta thinks that Niles is her husband.
