Storyline

Two events are supposed to happen simultaneously. First, Sylvia is celebrating her "50th" birthday at the Sheffield house (obviously the umpteenth times she's celebrated her 50th), with Fran throwing her a not so surprise party. And second, C.C. is going away for the weekend with Maxwell to an industry function, the weekend which she envisions will be a romantic one with her business partner. The first does happen, but the second hits a snag when C.C. accidentally gets trapped in Maxwell's wine cellar. What's worse is that Fran ultimately gets trapped in there with her. To make the best of a bad situation, Fran treats their captivity much like a slumber party. C.C. doesn't get into Fran's swing of things until she dulls her pain by the copious amounts of wine at her disposal. Fran ultimately becomes C.C.'s confidante, C.C. who finally admits to herself for the first time and to Fran that her feelings for Maxwell are probably unreciprocated. But things go back to normal between C.C. ... Written by Huggo

Goofs

In one same scene at the beginning, in the cellar, C.C.'s purse changes from a huge blue and white brocade tote bag that she holds in her hand, to a large black leather satchel that then hangs on her shoulder. In their next scene in the cellar, the tote has reappeared and the black purse is nowhere in sight. See more »
