After Fran makes a witty remark regarding child rearing from the audience of _"Rosie O'Donnell Show, The" (1996)_, Rosie suggests that Fran become a regular weekly fixture on the show, responding to write-in questions on child rearing. Although Fran is excited about being on a national television show, she is worried about having to tell Maxwell that she will be moonlighting from her job of taking care of his children. Surprisingly, Maxwell does allow Fran this opportunity without fuss as he figures she doesn't do much for the kids anyway. Fran becomes such a hit on the show that even C.C. wants to be her manager. Maxwell on the other hand is now afraid that Fran will leave his life forever. Maxwell learns from Sylvia and Yetta that a spirit named Bubby Sophie lords over the Fine family and that anything that Bubby Sophie says, goes. So Maxwell concocts a plan to pretend that he had a nightmare with Bubby Sophie telling Fran that she needs to quit the show or else life for everybody ... Written by Huggo

Donald Trump was unhappy when he saw a draft of the script in which he was referred to as a millionaire. "We got a note from his people that said, 'Mr. Trump is not a millionaire. He's a billionaire, and he would like you to change the line,'" Drescher said in an article posted on her Cancer Schmancer's website. But she didn't give in to his demand, and instead changed the line to "zillionaire," which is how it appeared in the show. See more »
