  • Frasier bets Sam that he could manage a City Council campaign for Woodie, and get at least 10% of the vote.

    10
    Especially considering that the writers were in wind down mode, this was a very fresh idea for a show plot. And the cameo appearance by Spanky MacFarlane in the teaser was a wonderful approach as well.



    The show started with a campaign stump by and embedded politician. He mesmorized everyone, except Frasier. Only Frasier could discern that Fogerty was using simply stale campaign rhetoric with no meaning. He challenged Woody to run a campaign equally sterile of substance, and see how many would vote for him - a move he later regretted.



    A Fogerty scandal, coupled with Kelly's news that she was pregnant, won the election for Woody.moreless

    • (Kevin Fogerty is campaigning at the bar; Frasier is frustrated trying to get him to say anything concrete)
      Fogerty: Maybe we need someone to blame. Maybe if we pick some faceless person at city hall to be responsible for all our problems then we won't have to accept any responsibility at all. Well, people, I say now is the time to start looking in the mirror. Because... if this thing is going to work, we are all going to have to make it work. The way a bunch of people made something work at Lexington and Concord. You may remember it... it's called AMERICA.
      (The bar patrons applaud & cheer; Fogerty leaves)
      Frasier: But he didn't SAY anything! Thank you, people, for proving my point. The voters of Boston are sheep.
      Woody: Wow, I thought that was just a Hanover thing.
      Frasier: Look, all I'm saying is that when it comes to voting, people just shut off their brains. I submit we could put a chimpanzee on the ballot and garner ten-percent of the vote.
      Woody: Ho ho. Two Hanover things in one day!

    • (reporter Holly Matheson is interviewing candidate Woody)
      Holly: So what you're saying is there are no easy answers.
      Woody: Well, not for me there aren't.
