  • Getting to the end...

    7.8
    Re-hashing the same old plot points until they get to the end of the series was all this episode had. Noel's obsessions with Roz and his prospects of getting lucky is nothing new.



    Frasier's obsessions regarding competition and team sports is also nothing new, and mixed in with yet another bully from his high school days, this is also re-hashed AGAIN.



    Bulldog's insanity, Gil being a foodie, it's all 'been there, done that'.



    The episode had a lot of problems but still managed to be funny in its own way. I just wish it was funny due to originality and not because of re-hashed plot points.moreless
  • Frasier and the others face off against another station in a weight-loss competition.

    10
    Frasier comes face to face with an old high school classmate who is the station manager for the other team, and still teases him about the whole hockey thing even calling him F. hockey.



    So they make a bet if Frasier wins his old chess set is to be replaced but if he loses he has to wear his old hockey uniform in front of everybody.



    The things people do when they are hungry, the whole scene when they are in the stem room and after was well done, even they first start trying to lose weight the fact that they wanted to resort to cheating shows how low some people will go to win something.



    I thought it was funny that they only won buy one pound and it was due to Roz cutting her hair.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Niles didn't want to touch Barney the pigeon because birds carry disease, but he also didn't want to use Martin's handkerchief (presumably for the same reason) so he used his bare hands. But Niles had his own handkerchief...he used it to clean the safety smudge off the window.

    • Does anybody else find that KACL's choice of contestants is a little odd? Frasier, Gil and Kenny are justified as they are two personalities and the manager, but what about Roz and Noel? The listeners rarely hear anything out of them. Bulldog definitely should not be there. He's just a guy who works in storage now.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Frasier: I want that sky-rat outta here!
      Martin: Oh no, Eddie will be crushed! The bird's like his pet!
      Frasier: Eddie is the pet. He doesn't get to have a pet.

    • Martin: Hey, Fras. How was the weigh-in?
      Frasier: Oh, it was appalling, thank you. My teammates ridiculed me for not pigging out beforehand. You know what is it about teams and, and competitions that just brings out the worst in people?
      Martin: Here we go again.
      Daphne: What?
      Niles: Well, Frasier and team sports are not a happy mix. Freshman
      year, in a bid to please Dad-
      Frasier: There is no need to tell that story.
      Niles: Frasier inadvertently joined the girls' field hockey team.
      Frasier: The sign-up sheet said "F. Hockey". I assumed it meant "freshmen" hockey.
      Martin: The little plaid skirt didn't tip you off?
      Frasier: I thought it was a kilt!

    • Frasier: You did not make me cry. I chose to cry as a tactic to elicit sympathy and thereby regain my chess set.
