Then he said, 'Mommy says Daddy's the Devil. I'm not so sure about that. Dylan and Moses, the others whose custody is being contested, were adopted by Farrow and then by Allen. But Thompson acknowledged that she'd been untruthful during questioning by the Connecticut authorities investigating last summer's child abuse allegations.
Thompson also told the authorities she'd spent her August vacation in Jamaica when in fact she'd been in New York meeting with Allen's private eyes. She left the Farrow household in January without saying goodbye to Dylan or Satchel when she was served with a subpoena by Farrow's attorney. Mavis Smith, housekeeper for the Farrow clan for 13 years, told a different story: Elkan Abramowitz, Allen's attorney, read a long list of criticisms that she was alleged to have made to Allen when he phoned her last August; she calmly denied making a single one.
Allen got this story, but it's not from me.

She never said that Farrow had too many children to pay attention to, that the hired help had raised the family, that Farrow had temper tantrums? But Abramowitz told reporters that Allen had taped the call without Smith's knowledge -- not illegal in New York state -- and that he's ready to play the tape Thursday. Eleanor Alter, Farrow's attorney, believes "she's telling the truth as she knows it; I don't think Mavis would knowingly lie. Earlier in the trial, now expected to grind on for another week and a half, a single therapist could testify for three painstaking days.

The Nannies Series by Melody Mayer
Occasionally the characters would break the fourth wall and comment on the situations themselves, or Fran would comment to the audience or look into the camera. Most of the humor Fran uses is aimed toward a Jewish audience. She makes references to Yiddish words and teaches the Sheffield children to be stereotypical Jews to never pay retail price, to go after men like doctors, etc. Much of this humor is featured in scenes including her mother Sylvia. At times, they would also make humorous references to the stars' previous careers or real life off-screen time.
This was noticeable when Yetta saw her reflection in the mirror and thought she was seeing Millie Helper from The Dick Van Dyke Show the role that Guilbert played on that long-running show , Maxwell remembering how he wanted to hire a former cast member from Days of Our Lives but thought he wasn't "British" enough a reference to Charles Shaughnessy's former series , C. Drescher also appeared in the series as tough-talking music publicist Bobbi Fleckman, reprising her role from the film This Is Spinal Tap , setting up an obvious visual gag where Drescher as the Nanny would disguise herself as Fleckman in order to get Mr.

It's also following "The Thing" that whenever Maxwell makes comments denying he has feelings for Fran, she is temporary "paralyzed" she can't feel her arm, her entire left side shuts down, etc. In addition, there is also a great deal of physical comedy in The Nanny including exaggerated falls and chases.
Drescher's facial expressions, when shocked or surprised, can also be seen as reminiscent of Lucille Ball 's portrayals of Lucy Ricardo and Lucy Carmichael. Sheffield refers to Fran as "Mrs. Carmichael", and asks in another: Mooney fire you from the bank again? The episode that featured a visit from Elizabeth Taylor who also appeared on Here's Lucy as a guest star began with Maxwell and Niles trying to hide the visit from Fran "Boys, boys, boys.
Now do you think my mother gave birth to a dummy 25 years ago? In an episode of The Nanny , Fran sees a man watching I Love Lucy on TV and as the theme song plays she gets a sneaky look on her face and gets the idea to gain entry into Mr. Sheffield's men's only club dressed as a man. It was well written and entertaining.
