The Nanny

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.

Show generally

Other mistake: In some episodes, there is a small room between the kitchen and dining room (the "Butler's Pantry"), but in other episodes the same door leads directly into the dining room, and in still others it leads into a passage.

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.

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. (00:21:30)

The Nuchslep - S1-E4

Other mistake: About 2/3 into the show, Fran carries a box of cookies into Maggie's bedroom. The box's name brand is covered over but Fran says she brought the Mallowmars. However when they show an actual cookie they are eating, you can see it's a Snackwell Devil's Food Cake cookie, not a Mallowmar.

Smoke Gets in Your Lies - S1-E2

Other mistake: Fran and Maxwell come out of the dining room and go into the living room. They come out of the door that normally leads to Maxwell 's office.

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?"

*BleuFever

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