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

    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.
