  • No good deed goes unpunished, especially if you're Frasier Crane.

    9.8
    This episode has no shortage of jokes and plot twists that constantly prove why "Frasier" is one of the greatest comedies ever. One day, Frasier does all these good deeds for people and they all end up going awry. By mistake, he picks up a prostitute from the rain and is sent to jail. Martin has to bail him out and then the media has their heyday with this awkward turn of events. The plot was very funny and yet so true. Often times, someone will help the world with a problem and yet they are criminalized for not being completely aware of something else that doesn't even matter. This episode ranks up there with "Frasier Crane's Day Off" and "The Innkeeper."moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Most radio talk shows use a five or eight second delay in their shows, however Frasier's conversation with Stephen, who hears voices in his radio, takes place in real time.

    • If anyone doubts that Frasier was filmed in front of a live audience, check the VU meters on Roz's console while she is flossing her teeth. Frasier's voice causes the meters to jump to about two-thirds maximum when he says the line "Don't bother, Roz, I'll get it," and then the audience laughter which follows registers at about one-third.

    • Frederick turns 11 in this episode, set in January 1999. But on "Cheers" he was born in November 1989, so he should only be 9 years and a few months old!

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Niles: These balloons come in an unsealed package, covered in some mysterious dust, straight from some southeast Asian sweatshop. Doesn't that worry you?
      Martin: Oh, you bet it does. I remember back in Korea, we'd crouch in our foxholes, scared to death those bastards were gonna drop balloons on us.

    • (Niles picks up his brother from jail)
      Niles: You certainly took your sweet time. I've been waiting here two hours.
      Frasier: Well, I'm sorry, Niles. I guess what with the pillow fight in the holding tank and the pre-mug shot makeover, time just got away from me.

    • Frasier: For the next couple of days, you're going to hear some rather nasty stories and some snide jokes about your old man ...
      Freddie: Mom's coming?
