  • Lilith comes to Seattle for a conference.

    Lilith comes to Seattle for a conference, but every time her and Frasier try to get together one ends up having to cancel, but then a friend of Lilith's sets them up on a blind date with each other, but they don't know it.



    I never watched Cheers, but you can sense the chemistry that these two have with each other, and playing their respected roles Kelsey for 20 years and Bebe for almost 20 years, know that this episode was probably hard for them and the way they said good-bye to each other at the end was very sad, knowing that this was the end, the last time we see Lilith and the end of Kelsey and Bebe's long relationship with expanded over two different shows.moreless
  • Through a series of ironic twists, Frasier and Lilith get set up on a blind date. Together in Lilith's hotel room for drinks, their blind dates are cancelled and they end up instead, spending the evening together.moreless

    8.0
    This episode is particularly meaningful because it marks the final appearance of Lilith. Bebe Neuworth joined the cast of Cheers at the start of Season 5 (1986). Almost eighteen years later, in the context of Frasier, we say good-bye to her. Despite the usual negative reaction to her presence by the entire cast (Frasier dreams that a volcano is spewing ice), Frasier's and Lilith's final parting more appropriately reflects the depth of their relationship as well as an abiding mutual respect and affection. As Frasier says good-bye to Lilith at the door, we sense too, that Kelsey Grammer and Bebe Neuworth are also saying good-bye to their long relationship as these two beloved characters.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • The 'Miss Right' story that Frasier recounts to Lilith over drinks refers to a "date from hell" he had in the 5th episode of the same season, entitled 'The Placeholder'.

    • After his gun goes off, damaging a tile above the fireplace, Martin tells Niles to get him some spackle. After running around aimlessly for a moment, Niles finally asks Martin, "What's spackle?".

      Niles should know. In Season 10's "The Harassed", he complains that the remodeling of his office has caused his spackle allergy to act up.

    • It seems highly unlikely that a veteran cop like Martin would keep a loaded gun in the house, even in a hidden place. Keeping ammunition separate from the weapon in the home is one of the very first rules of gun safety.

    • Daphne tosses Niles a banana which he fumbles, knocking a shoe box to the floor which contains his father's gun. You can see David Hyde Pierce desperately trying to grab the banana as he needs it for his next line, but when the gun fires, he jumps back, losing the banana in the process. In the very next scene, however, Niles is holding the banana as he says, "I think the banana went off!"

    • In all episodes following this one, the replaced tile over the fireplace (broken by the bullet accidentally fired from Martin's gun) can be seen to be a shade darker than all the others.

    • In the hotel room scene after Lilith and Frasier spent the night together on the couch, the carpet can be seen coming to an end when the camera zooms out; this proceeds to reveal hard, black flooring in front of the set.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Lilith: Daphne, Niles, congratulations on the successful commingling of your genetic material.
      Daphne: Thank you.
      Lilith: Do you know the sex?
      Niles: Do we? That's how we got pregnant.

    • Daphne: You should know how to catch a banana!
      Niles: I am not having this argument again!

    • Lilith: Anyway, long story short, six months in, he tells me I'm 'too tightly wound.'
      Nancy: Wow, I don't know what to tell you, Lil.
      Lilith: Lilith. My name is Lilith.
