  • Niles fills in for Frasier while he is in Aspen.

    Niles fills in for Frasier while he is at a radio psychiatrist convention in Aspen, while filling in, he has a brief session with a basketball payer, who has been playing crappy, and after taking with Niles he begins to play well.

    Niles then becomes the talk of Seattle, getting tickets to every game, cheerleaders hanging all over him, and Niles enjoying all of it, until he finds out that it wasn't anything that he told Reggie, that helped him to play better it was rubbing Niles' hair that Reggie thinks is why he's playing better.

    So Niles tells him he can't come to anymore games, and Reggie has to stop rubbing his hair he then agrees to give him a session before the game Reggie agrees, but takes a pare of scissors with him.

    This episode cracked me up, I love how neither Niles nor Frasier know anything about sports, and when they try to make sense of it, they always make fools out of themselves.
