Storyline

When Fran finds out that Elizabeth Taylor is stopping by the house (as much as Maxwell, C.C. and Niles tried to prevent her from knowing), she does whatever she can to spend some alone time with her. After spending such time, Elizabeth still asks her if she would telephone a bonded courier company to deliver a string of black pearls she will be using for a photo shoot to promote her new fragrance. Sylvia convinces Fran that a courier company screams "rob me", so Fran decides to hand deliver them herself. When the taxi in which Fran is traveling gets into a fender bender, Fran suffers a concussion resulting in some short term memory loss. Included in that memory loss is any knowledge of black pearls. As Maxwell waits desperately for Fran to regain her memory, that memory loss which results in some personal complications (much to Niles' delight), Maxwell tries to avoid the wrath of Elizabeth Taylor.
