Was I the only one who thought CC was implying that Niles WANTED her in/on his mattress? (And of course, that that would never happen - but there she was protesting too much?)

And Niles says "Sorry" sheepishly. Hah! (Was the bikini supposed to be his?) There are jokes about CC being a man, but I guess there are also jokes about Niles being a woman.

Thanks for reminding me about Lamb Chop's on the Menu. I also love when Lamb Chop says, "Miss Piggy? That ham?"

Another quote (or rather, exchange) I love, from The Morning After:

[The furniture guy can't do what Fran asks.]

Fran: Why can't you? Are you...
Furniture guy [yelling, exasperated]: Mrs. Sheffield...
Fran: A psychic, [looks upward] please God?

And the irony: Max gave Fran the job of decorating the kitchen to distract her from thinking about their relationship and pressuring him to move it along - but to outsiders, the fact that Fran is decorating makes it look like she's the wife of the house. (Although, he practically tells her he's giving her the task to distract her, which you would think would defeat the purpose.)

I think it says something that Max gave her jobs like that, and let her friends and family come over, in other words, he was treating her like his partner in many ways, even while denying they were in a relationship.

CC's "completely, totally, and multiply satisfied" and "that's the joy of being with a man who lives to serve others" quotes are among my favorites too, but for reasons other than humour.

And

Niles: [referring to a guy who recently dumped CC] He was beneath you.
CC: Not anymore. [it also shows that, despite always implying that Fran was...too loose...CC was...not completely uptight or prudish. She did admit that she "needed to get some."]

Max (having just seen Niles and CC in bed together) Five hours ago they were at each other's throats.
Fran: Apparently they decided to move downward.

When CC revealed, right before the wedding, that Max had done some "dating" in the last five years, she said he hadn't "spent every night of the last five years doing a one-man show." Which I thought was a great way of referring to...what I thought she was referring to...except that I hated that they wrote that in at all. I thought the whole idea originally was that Max didn't want any kind of involvement after his wife's death, and only Fran could change his mind about that, like Maria with Captain von Trapp. I thought at first that not getting serious with Fran was because he wasn't sure he could be with anybody. He really didn't seem like the type to casually...be with someone else. And that line made it sounds sexual.

Sylvia: Do I smell banana fritters with fresh fruit compote?

Niles: No.

Sylvia: Could I?

CC: "If you flip one really fast, it's like you're there!"
Niles: "Is that how you make your dates to move?"

Fran: Mr. Sheffield, the only thing that Andrew Lloyd Webber has that you don't is a middle name. Mr. Sheffield: I've got a middle name.
