A Plot for Nanny

Maxwell's old nanny comes to visit him and tries to get Fran to dress and act more properly. Fran, following her fellow nanny friends advice, changes her clothes for an uniform. After convincing Mr. Sheffield that nanny Mueller has to leave, Fran has a heart-to-heart talk with her, and realizes that underneath all the bitterness is just an old woman who devoted all her life to loving others.
