Plot[edit | edit source]
Fran gets the part of Juliet in a Broadway production of "Romeo and Juliet". Mr. Sheffield finds out later that the producers just cast her because he wants the play to be a total failure, but doesn't tell her right away, afraid she's going to interpret it as another attempt of his to ruin her first acting job.

Quotes[edit | edit source]
Maggie: Say, some of the kids are going to the Hamptons for the weekend.
Fran: Oh, great! Will there be boys there?
Maggie: Um... Maybe a few.
Fran: Fun! Parents? Ah! Who cares? They'll just get in the way anyway. Go! Have a blast! We don't even have to tell your father.
Fran: Sure! And when I'm fired and you're in the convent, we'll write each other letters and laugh about this.
Betty: (Referring to Fran) God, she's sleeping with everybody!
Romeo: Watch. Next year she'll have her own sitcom.
(Niles is banging two books together, removing dust)
Maxwell: (Frustrated) I'm working.
Niles: Pretend I'm not here. That's how I get through the day.
Fran: You know what I think? You are jealous because Philipe discovered something that was right under your nose.
Maxwell: And what would that be exactly?
Fran: My star quality!
Maxwell: That's rather like discovering the atomic bomb! Sounds good in theory, but millions will suffer.
Brighton: I'm Dracula... I'm going to suck out all your blood and bury you alive!
Grace: You don't scare me!
Brighton: All right, fine. I'm the C.C. monster and I'm going to marry Dad and send you away to boarding school! (Grace screams and runs away)
Maxwell: Oh, Romeo, Romeo... wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name.
Fran: Wow! You British guys really know how to play women.
Niles: I warn you, my acting prowess may blow you off the stage. They're still talking about my Baroness.
Fran: I can't stop thinking about it, and I didn't even see it.
Fran: Can you imagine anything more ridiculous than me doing Shakespeare?
Maxwell: Well, yes. People paying to see it!
Maxwell: Well, I'm sorry Philipe, but we British have a thing about mutilating Shakespeare... the Queen comes and hits you with her purse.
C.C.: People will be walking out in the middle of her performance.
Niles: Just like one of your dates.
C.C.: Maxwell I just heard the most delicious news!
Niles: Well, why don't you run make a friend and tell them all about it...
(Maxwell is furious because Brighton and Gracie are still up)
Maxwell: What's your excuse?
Gracie: Well, you tucked me in wrong...
Maxwell: Obviously - you got out!!
Niles: I spent my summers in Stratford-Upon-Avon.
Fran: I spent my summers selling Avon.
Maggie: By the time Juliet was my age, she had already gotten married, had sex, and died.
Mr. Sheffield: Well, now you know what happens when you don't listen to your father!
Mr.Sheffield and Fran kiss
