November 14, 1994

Two events are supposed to happen simultaneously. First, Sylvia is celebrating her "50th" birthday at the Sheffield house (obviously the umpteenth times she's celebrated her 50th), with Fran throwing her a not so surprise party. And second, C.C. is going away for the weekend with Maxwell to an industry function, the weekend which she envisions will be a romantic one with her business partner. The first does happen, but the second hits a snag when C.C. accidentally gets trapped in Maxwell's wine cellar. What's worse is that Fran ultimately gets trapped in there with her. To make the best of a bad situation, Fran treats their captivity much like a slumber party. C.C. doesn't get into Fran's swing of things until she dulls her pain by the copious amounts of wine at her disposal. Fran ultimately becomes C.C.'s confidante, C.C. who finally admits to herself for the first time and to Fran that her feelings for Maxwell are probably unreciprocated. But things go back to normal between C.C. and Fran after Maxwell frees them from their prison.

The Strike

November 28, 1994

Maxwell and Fran face a difference in opinion on how to raise the children when Maxwell reverses a decision Fran made regarding not allowing Brighton to go to the mall. Fran makes Maxwell realize that Brighton was using the old ploy of dividing and conquering. Another difference they face is during the party following the opening on Maxwell and C.C.'s new play, a musical version of Norma Rae (1979). The busboys at the hotel where the reception is being held are on strike. Fran refuses to cross the picket line, which makes Maxwell try to forcibly make her cross. The media has a field day with the issue, especially considering the irony with regard to the subject matter of Norma Rae. Maxwell and C.C. decide to diffuse the issue by presenting their side of the story on Sally Jessy Raphael's talk show. But Sally's show offers Fran a counterpoint argument. Realistically, this forum allows both Fran and Maxwell to discuss deeper feelings around the issue.
