My Fair Nanny - S1-E3

Corrected entry: In the scene at the breakfast table where the family is discussing wether or not Maggie should become a debutante, Fran refers to Maggie as Angela, the name of the actress who plays Maggie.

Correction: It's a litte hard to hear but (also according to the subtitles) Fran says "But, angel, I think, .". And the first name if the actress who plays Maggie is Nicholle.

My Fair Nanny - S1-E3

Corrected entry: Nile's opens the door for CeCe. She walks into the room where everyone is sitting. Behind her you see someone hidden by the wall and then run across the hall opening.

Correction: It is Maggie who is walking back there.

Bowling 255 is correct. I went back and rewatched this scene and it is indeed Maggie in her peach shirt and plaid pants. She hesitates as she walks out, so it does look like an accident. She steps back and then walks out again, but the scene cuts to her already standing by the stairs. So this is actually a continuity error.

The Engagement - S5-E15

Corrected entry: At the very beginning of the episode Fran thanks Max for telling her he loves her, and Gracie says she's sick of hearing it, and she walks into the living room. In the next scene, Fran tells everyone in the family that Max said he loved her and Gracie is surprised, like she never heard it before.


Correction: Maxwell actually tells them he told Fran he loved her and didn't take it back. In a previous episode he confesses his love for her and later retracts his feelings. Gracie is reacting to the news that he has finally committed to Fran.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Whenever we see the exterior of the Sheffield townhouse, there are four floors. But inside, there are only two floors. And we never hear about a neighbor that might live in a separate townhouse upstairs.

Correction: Just because they don't show the whole house in a way that you understand doesn't mean it isn't there. The place is basically only one room wide. The living room is on the ground floor. The kitchen and probably Nile's room is downstairs. There have to be at least 5 more bedrooms (Dad, 2 daughters, son, nanny), and I recall Cece living there too at one point, so considering an average of 2 rooms bathrooms per floor that's at least 3 more floors - there's at least 5 floors worth of rooms that must be there.


Maggie the Model - S1-E13

Corrected entry: In the office, when Maxwell's phone on his desk rings, the ringing sound is an old-fashioned telephone bell, although the phone is a modern electronic one.

Correction: Many electric telephones can be programmed to have various rings. The telephone in this scene could have been programmed to sound like an old fashioned phone.

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.

The Producers (1) - S6-E16

Question: At the beginning of the episode, I've never got what Niles meant to this question by Fran. Does this mean he always liked C.C. or maybe that, but didn't know it? "Are you telling me all those years you put dishwasher water in her coffee, you changed her lip balm for glue stick and called her a COW you were FLIRTING?!" "What, no good?"


Chosen answer: Fran is still incredulous at the idea of Niles being in love with C.C. Niles' response is his typical sarcasm.
