At the park Fran and the other nannies complain. Back at the house everyone is eating dinner, but Fran is absent. Fran enters wearing a uniform and leaves Max speechless. The nanny actually puts Fran down and Max is not happy. While CC is thrilled. Later in the kitchen Max tells Fran to take off the uniform and be herself. Max is upset about what his nanny is doing. They hear Niles and nanny and hide to spy on them. They’re having pudding together. The next day Niles is exhausted, but the nanny is perky. Fran sweetly lets it slip that she knows. Nanny gets nasty with Fran again and they have it out. Max storms back in and kicks her out, but Fran surprises them both by making him apologize. Nanny is leaving, she’ll accompany CC’s mom on her trip to Japan. Fran comes down the stairs in her version of her uniform, which nanny loves.
