  • Not bad but nothing special

    In this episode Frasier and Daphne are off the hook when Donny drops his case. Frasier asks out his lawyer but soon discovers she's overcharging him and isn't sure how to handle it. Everyone goes out to dinner and bumps into Donny, who says he's engaged which makes Daphne fear he's only on the rebound.

    This epiosde isn't the best in the series, but it's worth it for the scene where Niles has to ride the lift up and down four or five times, once with each character. Other than that it's usual Frasier so nothing really stands out. I've given it a good rating because I didn't get bored with it.moreless
  • Frasier takes a liking to his lawyer.

    Frasier hires an attractive lawyer to represent him and Daphne, against Donny's lawsuit, during the time he takes a liking to her, and after Donny drops the suit, Frasier asks her out, and the two begin dating.

    Later, when Frasier gets the bill he is a little taken aback at how much she charged for just talking on the phone, and while celebrating with, his dad, Niles and Daphne, plans to ask her.

    While at the restaurant, they run into Donny, and find out the reason Donny dropped the lawsuit. He’s getting married, Daphne seems a little taken aback by this, so she goes to see him, and finds out that he is getting married that second, and all she wanted was closure.

    Frasier still hasn’t been able to tell Abby that he thinks she overcharged him, so he sends her an e-mail they feels guilty about it, and even worse when she asks him to come over.

    However Abby had a night of passion in mind, but when reading Frasier’s e-mail, gets offended, and throws him out, ending their relationship.

    I loved the part where Niles ended up, riding the elevator up and down, because each time it went up, someone wanted to talk to him, and pulled him on, then he started to get sick from something he ate. It was great.moreless

    • Abby: The pleasure's been all mine.
