Sara's parents are visiting, and Max is afraid they might not like Fran, as he never told them about the marriage. Fran tries to do all the right things, but can't get it right. After she surprises them with the adoption plans, she gets the impression they will investigate her. Fran goes to Sylvia and Val for advice, but Sylvia's new sugar-free diet affects her ability to think. Finally, Fran decides to tell Max all he doesn't know about her, but he says he already knew that as he did a background check after she was hired. Finally, Fran opens her heart to Sara's parents, and they finally agree on the adoption. Meanwhile, Yetta thinks Niles is her husband, and C.C. takes advantage of Fran's problems to mock her.
