  • Episode Description
  • Henry scoffs at Ian's story about a guy being hypnotized into believing he committed a crime he didn't, claiming it's ridiculous. Ian, however, professes to be a hypnotic expert, and swears it could definitely happen. In an effort to kill two birds with one stone, Maddie asks Ian to prove it to Henry by hypnotizing her into enjoying the taste of lobster, since her date promised to cook it for her, and she can't stand seafood. Ian proves it to Henry alright. But when Ian's hypnotic powers turn out greater than even he imagined, Jake and Tess fall under his spell too. Soon, Ian's diabolical attempts to play William Shakespeare with them render the situation more tragedy than comedy.moreless

  • The Hypnotist is the best episode they did. My wife and I miss this show very much. If anyone knows where I can find a download on the net of all the episodes, I would love to see them again.

    • Jake: Whoah. This is the third time this week I've woken up in a strange apartment. Who'd I nail?

    • Ian: Just think, Jake and Tess together. Where would they go? Henry: Well, let's see, all we need is a strip joint that sells designer shoes.

    • Ian: Just relax. They just think they're Romeo and Juliet. What's the worst that could happen? Henry: Well, they could have sex and kill themselves. Ian: We should probably go look for them.

    • Jake: Juliet, thou art so hot. The blood of my heart rusheth to my codpiece.

    Notes (2)

    • Stand-up comic slash Friars Club roastmaster Freddie Roman is lesser known as Alan Kirschenbaum's pop.

    • "The Hypnotist" lost a huge chunk of Frasier's lead-in, so as a result, episodes supposed to air thereafter began disappearing from the schedule days before airtime.
