Same here with getting nosebleeds. I'm also susceptible to nasal allergies which just makes it even worse. Funnily enough though, unlike George I was never made fun of for it as a kid. The few times I had a nosebleed at school, the other kids were concerned that I was dying or something.

Notice though that future episodes involving George never mention his nosebleed problem again. I guess it was one of those one-episode-only things that the show is known for. :)

I agree about the duality of Francine's character. Muffy has that same quirk as well, albeit on a much more subtle level.

But other times it's overdone to the point that I find it offensive. Take the episode where Jenna is a bedwetter. Early on, Francine makes fun of Jenna behind her back (literally), that she can't sleep anywhere without her mommy and daddy. Then at the end of the episode, Jenna tries to hide the fact that the pullup is hers by passing it off as being someone else's. Francine tells her off, saying that she might have hurt somebody's feelings. Gee Francine, what about Jenna's feelings when you were making fun of her behind her back a day ago?
