In the first episode, Fran arrives at the home of [[Maxwell Sheffield]] (played by Charles Shaughnessy), a millionaire Broadway producer, who hires her as a nanny for his three kids, [[Maggie Sheffield|Maggie]] (played by Nicholle Tom), [[Brighton Sheffield|Brighton]] (played by Benjamin Salisbury), and [[Gracie Sheffield|Gracie]] (played by Madeline Zima). This occurs after she shows Maxwell her references, which are written in lipstick. After she was hired by Maxwell, Fran discovered that her old physical education teacher from her days in high school, [[Ms. Wickavich]] (played by Rita Moreno), whom she derisively called "The Wickavich of the West", was now teaching at Maggie's school and was going by the name [[Coach Stone]]. The taunting and bullying teacher did her best to make both Fran and Maggie miserable. (One of her memorable lines was when she was criticizing someone's handspring. ''You call that a back handspring layout?! Shape up!! I've seen better routines in Gymboree!! You Mary Lou Rotten!'') Fran did her best to stand up to her, and after saving her life by knowing the Heimlich maneuver, Coach Stone (albeit grudgingly) passed Maggie in gym. Miss Fine is vain and self-conscious about her age; she often claims to be 29 on the show, regardless of how much time passes. It is assumed that, because she turned 30 toward the end of the first season, Fran is thirty-five years old by the end of the series (which leads to some speculation about why her age is such a big dilemma in the first place, especially since it was around the time of the Nanny's creation that the trend of women were getting married later in life rather than in their twenties took hold, Maxwell once sarcastically stated that even FBI couldn't know her true age and that the best they could dig up was 32). Fran is constantly under pressure to get married by her controlling mother, which results in comical situations when Fran declines a chance to marry a rich man (causing her mother to threaten suicide), so she may continue caring for the Sheffields. Her [[Rose Fine|Aunt Rose]] and [[Stanley Fine|Uncle Stanley]] were played by Fran Drescher's real-life parents, Morty and Sylvia Drescher.
