In "Call Me Fran", Niles finally tells Maxwell exactly what he's been thinking since The Thing.
Maxwell: Niles, I don't know what [Fran] wants anymore! What am I supposed to do?
Niles: May I speak freely, Sir?
Maxwell: Yes, of course, old boy...
: I am so bloody sick of hearing this year after year: "Niles, what am I to do? I told her I love her, I took it back,
I'm afraid of commitment, I'm worried about the children!" (*Grabs Max*)
FOR GOD'S SAKE! MAKE A MOVE! DO SOMETHING!
You passed on Cats
! DO YOU WANT TO REGRET THIS FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, TOO!?
- Made better by what happens right afterwards. C.C. asks him what the shouting was about and he turns it to his favor.
Niles: I was trying to convince him to give up on Miss Fine, and move on with his life.
C.C.: *rushing in* I agree with Niles! What're you waiting for? Just do it, do it, DO IT!
Niles: *walks away with a smug smile on his face*
