Maggie has been trying to get out of gym class because she has a tough teacher, so Fran decides to talk to her teacher and finds out it's the same teacher that tormented her in her high school days.

Fran: Val, what comes after a sentence?
Val: A parole?
Fran: (to Maggie) You may have guessed Val is not short for valedictorian. Now what's going on? You've had your period 4 times this month.
Maggie: So?
Fran: SO, women don't get their periods 4 times a month, otherwise all the men would be institutionalized.
Val: Which would not necessarily affect my social life.

Maxwell: I hate actors, they ruin theatre.

Niles: A woman with an electrical appliance around her neck and her feet in water should remember who her friends are.

Fran: (Upon hearing that actor Alan Beck set a 20 year old Maxwell on fire) Well you're not a 20 year old boy anymore, you're a big macher producer.
Maxwell: Yes, but I'm still flammable.
