  • Frasier co-hosts this years Christmas parade.

    Frasier finally gets to co-host Seattle's yearly Christmas parade, with Kelly Kirkland.

    Dr Mary returns to KACL, and Frasier worries that he will have to share airtime with her again, she says that she will be getting her own timeslot, but Frasier gets worse news when he finds out his co-host is sick, and that Dr. Mary is her replacement. The parades starts out simple enough, but it soon becomes disastrous, when Frasier gets irritated with Dr. Mary for cutting into his parade time.

    To make matters worse after Mary tells everybody that Santa's coming something Frasier wanted to do, he accidentally punches Santa in the nose, ending an already bad evening.

    Frasier later apologized To Mary for the way he was acting,

    I thought this was a good Christmas episode, Frasier's bit about marching beavers was funny.moreless

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Frasier: Say, you didn't watch the parade this evening, did you?
      Bob: Well, I turned it off when the smelling salts started making Santa nauseous. You know, Frasier, I got off to a rather rough start at this parade myself.

    • Frasier: No, that's a terrible idea. Your elves are probably suffering from seasonal-affective disorder. Now, loading them up with sweets will only aggravate the problem!
      Santa: Kids love candy! (the crowd cheers)
      Frasier: Elves are not kids, they're tiny men!
      Mary: Well, if you want my opinion...
      Frasier: No, thank you, Mary. We've been listening to your opinions all night, and frankly there isn't enough room left in our heads for another one, now if you would just get back in...
      (Frasier puts his hands out and accidentally punches Santa on the nose
      with his microphone)

    • Frasier: (smiling) This might be a good time for a break. We have an exciting surprise coming up - a special mystery guest.
      Mary: (suddenly, ad-libbed) It's Santa!
      (Frasier carries on smiling, against all odds)
      Frasier: Thank you, Mary!

    • Frasier: Oh, Lord, that'll be my hobo casserole!
      Niles: Hobo! That's the smell!

    • Frasier: Hey, Kelly. Have you ever seen eighty beavers march in perfect rhythm?
      Kelly: Oh, Frasier, everyone knows beavers can't march.
      Frasier: Oh, they can, when they're the marching beavers of the Riverside High School Band!
      Kelly: Hey, you tricked me.
      Frasier: Sorry, Kelly, but how about those incredible formations. They're so precise.
      Kelly: Well, that doesn't surprise me, Fras, after all, the beaver is nature's first ENGINE-er! (laughs)
