Fran has been the type of person who has always survived on her correct instincts. Much to her dismay, those instincts seem to be failing her of late. First, she secretly reads and sends to several publishers a manuscript of Maxwell's first novel, which he wanted no one - let alone publishers - to read. They all reject it, using such strong words as "hate". And second, Fran thinks that Brighton should have career goals rather than rely on living on his trust fund. She thinks he should strive to be a director, with his first job being to film Sylvia's cousin Susan's baby's bris using his new video camera. Brighton agrees, but faints before the taping as he had no idea what a bris was before agreeing to do it. This has placed Fran and Sylvia in the bad books of the rest of the Fine family.

With free tickets in hand, the Sheffields plus Fran...

You've never been so insulted? Well now, I'm insulted.
