  • Simon Finch-Royce,an eminent physciatrist old school chum of Frasiers,is in town,and Dianne solicits his advice,and when she doesnt like what he says,continues to badger him until he tells her what she wants to hear.

    This episode features former Monty Pythoner,John Cleese.Cleese also appeared in the Brit-com,Fawlty Towers,which producers of Cheers have admitted was an influence.His appearance makes this one of the funniest episodes of the entire run of the series.Diannes constant hounding is hilarious,and like usual,Sam just wants to avoid the whole thing.The British style humor is actually something of a departure from the usual American sitcom humor,but it is so funny,and it does come out of the Sam-Dianne relationship,that it fits in well with the best Cheers episodes.
