Did You Know?


This-originally aired as a one hour episode-was split in two for syndication, complete with intro credits for the 2nd part, thus making said 2nd part the very first time that Fran starts an episode wearing the exact same outfit as she wore when the previous episode (aka part 1) ended. The 2nd part of this episode also ends with "To Be Continued". See more »


Maxwell tells the apparition of his deceased wife that Fran has made them smile, then immediately starts reminiscing. This leads to the next scene as a series of flashbacks, but Maxwell is not present at all in almost any of them. There is no way he could reminisce about such instances. See more »


Val Toriello: [Their car has broken down and they are on foot. To Sylvia:] You know, we've been walking for three hours, how cannot you be hungry?
Fran Fine: [Turns to Sylvia, suspicious. Calmly:] Ma, did you eat my edible underwears?
Sylvia Fine: [long pause] Maybe.
Fran Fine: Ma!
[slaps Sylvia on the arm]
Fran Fine: We were gonna ration my undies.
Sylvia Fine: [Voice goes up] I was nervous! You know I always eat when I'm nervous!
Fran Fine: [Agitated:] Nervous, happy, sad, swimming!
