    The classi example of the Frasier series - a great big farce!

    By count-chocula, Jan 22, 2011

    This episode is one of the funniest Frasier episodes I have ever since, its definately the funniest episode from the first four seasons. It involves every character fantastically and will make you laugh out loud over and over again.



    It is very similar to other Frasier epsidoes like Ham Radio, Ski Lodge & The Matchmaker as in the way that it is a great big muddle of confusion!



    All the parts are played wonderfully apart from Clive I have to say - there is nothing wrong with the acting but the accent he puts on is just terrible! At one point he even says \'\'loveringly\'\'



    All in all a hilarious episode of Frasier and one no comedy fan should go without seeing!

    Wierd, but hilarious.

    By Iverson82094, Jan 22, 2011

    When Daphne's ex-fiance comes to visit, she tries to let him down easy by pretending to be married to Niles. However, when Frasier, Martin, and Roz get involved in the charade, the evening spirals out of control. AN episode that was just plain wierd, but that is pretty much what made this episode so hilarious, and full of life. ANy Frasier fan could surely not hate this episode, and if you did hate this episode well then this is not the show for you to be watching. Without a doubt a master piece of an episode that will be enjoyed for generations to come.moreless

    Absolutely fantastic episode, pity that the guest actor went to the Dick van Dyke school of English accents!

    By Maverick405, Jan 22, 2011

    This episode is one of the absolute classics! When each of the characters takes on a different persona; Niles is married to Daphne, Frasier is married to Maris (Roz) and Marty is a retired astronaut, it makes for a wonderfully confusing episode! Scott Atkinson as Daphne's old flame however, leaves a lot to be desired. His accent is the furthest thing from a genuine English accent that I have heard since Dick van Dyke in Mary Poppins. I'm Scottish and I thought it was appalling. Surely there must have been at least one actor with a genuine english accent out of work on the day that they filmed this!moreless

    O what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. The whole Frasier cast get involved in deceit when Daphne doesnt want to to tell the truth to an old boyfriend.

    This would have to be one of the best episodes of Frasier produced. The acting is superd and each cast member is brilliant in their acting and their presentation. When Clive an old boyfriend returns to America he visits Daphne who remembers that they had a promise if neither were married in 5 years they might get back together again but Daphne only remembers what he use to be like and doesnt want to renew the relationship. She pretends to be married to Niles (Who of course is delighted with the idea) Frasier who does not want anything to do with the pretense is now married to Roz who is \"Maris\", & Martin who is told not to get involved pretends he is an Astronaut! The only one not pretending is Eddie. It felt like you were sitting in a Theatre watching a stage production and the story was unfolding in front of you. Totally absorbing and throughly entertaining a not to be missed episode.moreless

    Daphne makes Niles dreams come true.

    By Bountyhunterc28, Apr 26, 2007

    When Daphne's ex-boyfriend Clive comes to Seattle to see Daphne, she panics and introduces Niles as her husband, and Roz gets introduced as "Maris" Frasier's wife.



    Niles is of course thrilled about this and to make it last talks Clive into staying for dinner, but its not until that Daphne and Roz find out that he's rich and successful, that they dump their "husbands" and start fighting over Clive.



    I loved this episode, I thought it was funny how Clive reacted when he heard them arguing about him, and still didn't figure out that Martin was not an astronaut, a great way to start season 4.moreless
