Stock Tip

Sylvia and her Canasta group are willing to invest their money in Mr. Sheffield's next play. After C.C. unwittingly strikes high profile investor Charles Haist so she can get a cab, Fran has to pose as Ms. Babcock to get the money. This includes using C.C.'s apartment when Charles goes to pick her up for dinner. Maxwell feels guilty over using Fran like this, and he rushes over to confess to the ruse. The whole plan goes down the drain after Charles tries to get Fran (as Ms. Babcock) to dump Maxwell as her business partner. Maxwell, who had been hiding in the closet, kicks Charles out for being a sleaze and decides to invest in his own play, something he had never done before.

Niles: Well it is raining outside, sir, perhaps she melted. Shall I see if there is a pointy hat and Chanel suit laying in the street?
