The Nanny

Material Fran - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: When Fran is on the private jet, the champagne sitting between her and Cathy doesn't move through all the turbulence, showing that it is the camera shaking and not the plane.

Here Comes the Brood - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: In the dining room, CC is wearing a scarf over her head as part of her "safari" outfit. When the shot shifts to a close-up of her looking horrified at the thought of taking the kids to the Zoo on her own, the scarf is suddenly around her neck.

The Whine Cellar - S2-E10

Other mistake: When Sylvia is outside the Sheffield mansion she says "I wonder if my daughter Fran is at home? I will see if she is" the doorbell rings as soon as she finishes that line, but you can see both her hands are visible. She can't have rung the doorbell.

Pinske Business - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When CC and Maxwell are hiding in CC's closet, the coat CC is hiding behind changes between shots. Some shots she is hiding behind Charles Haste's grey coat and other shots Fran's gold one.

The Tart with Heart - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Fran's date Jack first enters the house, Fran closes the door behind him. A couple of shots later, the door is open and Fran is closing it again.

Maggie the Model - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: As Chloe Simpson is leaving the mansion at the end of the show, she trips over Fran's foot without touching her. She starts to trip about half a foot before Fran's shoe.

The Family Plumbing - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: In the kitchen, while Fran is telling Maxwell about Brighton and Tiffany in the shower, the glass of juice on the counter appears and disappears between shots.

Where's the Pearls? - S3-E21

Plot hole: When Fran is waiting to ambush Elizabeth Taylor, Maxwell says "the kids left for school an hour ago", but Gracie comes running down the stairs right after that with no comment from anyone.

The Family Plumbing - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Maxwell is talking to Brighton about the battle of the sexes, he puts his hands in his pockets. The shot changes and suddenly his hands are at his sides and he puts them in his pockets again.

The Family Plumbing - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When CC takes the pile of showgirl resumes from Maxwell in the office, she holds them with both hands. When the shot changes, she is holding them with one arm under the pile and the other hand leafing through them.

The Butler, the Husband, the Wife and Her Mother - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Sylivia is telling Fran about her birth, she raises her right hand and has her left hand on her hip. When the shot changes her left hand is raised and her right hand is on her hip.

The Dinner Party - S5-E16

Continuity mistake: Between 15-20 minutes into the show, Fran and her mom are talking in the kitchen. There's a box of Wheat Toasties on the counter. The top flap goes back and forth between folded up and folded down depending on the shot.

I Don't Remember Mama - S1-E22

Other mistake: Towards the end of the show, Fran has a tape of the Sheffield's which she removes from the cover and inserts into the player, upside down. It's quick but it's there.


Frannie's Choice - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the kitchen with Val, Fran takes two green cups and places them on the bench. She takes two teabags and places them in the cups. In the next scene the two cups are on the table with Val, and Fran carries the teabags over to them and puts them in.


Me and Mrs. Joan - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Fran is having an intimate talk with Joan, Fran has a cookie in her left hand. Next scene it's an empty glass which she then pours a drink into, then the glass is empty and Fran again fills it.


The Producers (1) - S6-E16

Other mistake: Pretending to be Max's assistant, Fran dials a number for Bernadette Peters. The conversation is on speaker phone. The assistant says "one moment please." Niles and Fran continue talking and Maxwell comes in. Fran and Niles sheepishly hurry out of the room. Notice how, this whole time, Fran never touched the phone again to turn the phone off. So Max would hear Bernadette Peters and actually figure out Niles and Fran's plan before the episode's even halfway over.

Love is a Many Blundered Thing - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: When Fran and Val are in the bus stop, Val's arms change position between shots throughout the scene.

Love is a Many Blundered Thing - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: When Maxwell says he is interested in "that lady from the Schubert organisation", Fran puts her fists on her hips. When the shot changes and she says "Lipo her butt", she has her unfurled hands on her hips, lower down.

The Nanny Napper - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: In the kitchen, when Fran and Maxwell are tidying up, Maxwell picks up the bottle of chocolate sauce from the table. When he walks to the sink, the bottle is suddenly back on the table, and a few shots later Fran picks it up again.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the opening titles sequence, cartoon Fran is thrown out of the bridal shop and the doors are closed behind her. When she hails a taxi in the next shot the doors are open again.
