  • Frasier starts seeing a girl who is his complete opposite. While Frasier debates whether this violates his priciples, everyone else gives Frasier advice.

    The episode started out funny. Frasier and Roz are at Cafe Nervosa, when Niles comes in. Roz leaves, so she offers Niles her seat. When it looks like he is going to wipe it off, she tells him off and he covers it up telling her he was reaching for his cell phone. Unfortunately this is probably the funniest scene of the episode.

    Niles and Frasier start talking and he tells him about this new girl he met, but he seems to not know much about her. Niles tells him that his relationship is just physical attraction. Frasier says that he would not stay in a relationship if it had no future; that it would violate his principles.

    So when Frasier\'s new girlfriend is revealed, she gives quite an impression. She\'s very outgoing, quirky, and artistic. She also reveals that she doesn\'t have much in common with Frasier- she doesn\'t like wine, and doesn\'t eat most of the food he is cooking up, but Frasier still stays with her.

    The next day, Frasier is torn on what to do. He likes the physical relationship, but knows they have nothing in common and the relationship has no future. Martain (his Dad) tells him to break it off- the sooner the better.

    Roz tells him that he should stop listening to his head and start listening to his body. So Frasier decides to stay in the relationship, but starts to notice his girlfriend\'s strange lifestyle (like she stuffs pillows with her own hair). It looks like Frasier is going to break it off, but he ends up not being able to resist her.

    I thought that the episode could have been better. The girl was too played up for being strange and in my opinion, Frasier acted kind of out of character. It\'s not my favorite episode, but you may as well watch it if it\'s on TV.
