Storyline

When Fran hears that Maxwell's brother Nigel will soon be arriving (Nigel is to be Maxwell's best man), Fran realizes that she never told Maxwell that she almost ran off and married Nigel a year and a half ago. When Nigel arrives, Fran notices that he has obviously moved on as he has brought his new French girlfriend, Geneviève. Fran pleads with Nigel not to tell Maxwell about them almost getting married, to which Nigel agrees. But in a slightly inebriated state at Maxwell's bachelor party, Nigel spills the beans. Maxwell is livid and feels betrayed even though he was at the time of Nigel and Fran's relationship not committed to Fran. Fran, thinking that Maxwell is wanting an excuse to call off the wedding, decides to call it off for him. Unexpectedly, C.C. purposely helps Fran get Maxwell back, with a little assistance from Marla Maples, a former flame of Maxwell's. Written by Huggo
