Most Embarrassing Moment: When sculpture boyfriend in college revealed new work for the art wing garden and it was a life size nude study of her. It still stands in the school courtyard to this day.
Has Never Told Anybody: At age 16 accidentally backed over the neighbor's cat, "Fluffy," who stuck to the tire and was henceforth called "Flappy"
Goal in Life: The "All-American Dream" - to marry the right man and raise a family. Katchoo refers to this as "the All-American Scream"
She is heterosexual by nature, remember the All-American dream and all that, but the extraordinary events in her life lead her to Katchoo. Watching what she does with that is fascinating. Francine is just as multi-faceted as Katchoo, but far less confrontational, even with herself, hence the pleasant sidekick persona.
But when circumstances force her hand, Francine can be just as brave, angry, jealous, strong or mistaken as any woman. Interestingly enough, Francine never rises to the challenge on her own behalf, but always does so for Katchoo. She is the ultimate modern neurotic woman, capable of so much more but doing so much less.
