She is the wife of the title character Stan Smith and the mother of Hayley and Steve. Francine is voiced by Wendy Schaal. Francine is often seen indignant, nagging and scolding her family mostly Stan over wrongdoings, sometimes even becoming berserk in these moments. Seemingly a voice of reason, Francine also nags at her family to uphold certain virtues as well as over anything they engage in that is unwholesome or reprehensible;  paradoxical in character however, it is right in the midst of her moralistic nagging that Francine displays total inelegance, inappropriateness, and impropriety. Sporadically, while engaged in moralizing others or just in general, she will randomly throw in remarks and behaviors that are in bad taste and lack all sense of propriety. In the episode Virtual In-Stanity for example, Francine calls up Stan nagging and lecturing him about his neglect of Steve to which Stan responds by hanging up on her.
