Maxwell comes in with the news that Columbia has optioned a play of his for a movie. If the deal goes through, the family will have to move out to Beverly Hills.

Max has arranged for Fran to look at houses to rent while they are out there finalizing in the deal.

When Fran finally gets up the courage to tell Sylvia, she is surprised when Sylvia doesn't seem to care.

It's Niles that isn't thrilled with the idea of moving.
Niles: I don't want to move to California. It's a desert. Do you have any idea how much dust collects in a desert? And it's hot, which means she's going to be walking around in shorts.
(He does a full body shudder.)

When they arrive, the first house they look at is owned by Donna Douglas, a.k.a. Elly May Clampett.

Niles is convinced this move is a good thing when he gets a load of the fancy intercom system.
Niles: Oh my God! It's the Tone Tech 2000 Intercom System, with the voice activated hyper-sensitive speakers. Damn, this baby picks up sign language!

Elly convinces Fran that Sylvia is just hiding her hurt about the move and it is really breaking her heart.

Meanwhile, Max is meeting with the studio executive who now wants to turn his play into sitcom instead of a movie. The huge amount of money offered convinces Max to go ahead and sign.

Fran still doesn't want move without her mother so Mr. Sherry suggests that Sylvia could live in a guest house at the new mansion.

Back in NY, Sylvia refuses.
Sylvia: Darling I can't move to California. You have your life, I have mine. You shouldn't revolve your life around me, ya know I'm not going to be around forever.

Fran is worried and spends the afternoon trying to find her. She calls all Sylvia's usual haunts; her beauty parlor tells Fran that she is probably at the hospital since she goes three times a week.

Fran assumes Sylvia must be it ill, but she denies it. When pressed as to why she is seeing a doctor....

.....Fran realizes what kind of 'seeing' is going on.
Fran: Are you telling me that you're having an affair?

Ya'all come back now, ya hear?

As the argument escalates, the family tries to stay out of the way. Fran demands an answer but Sylvia refuses to say for sure and leaves.
