* Fran: You might as well get used to it. You’re going to be guarding your toys for the rest of your life.
* Niles: I thought something might be wrong with your eyes. A handsome man just walked in the room and you didn’t do your subtle Hannah Barbera reaction: heart pounding through your thorax, tongue unfurling to the floor.
* Max: I didn’t notice.
Fran: You didn’t notice? I’m beginning to wonder about you too.
* Niles: If you let me tell Miss Babcock about this I’ll work free for a year.
* Miss Babcock: Nanny Fine trying to pass off Kurt as a date, how pathetic.
Niles: This from a woman who went to Cancun with a crash dummy.
* Fran: I should be nuts about the guy. He knows everything about me and is still interested.
* Max: I want to apologize for the way I acted about you and Kurt.
Fran: Well, if I didn’t know any better I’d think you were jealous.
