  • Life gets in the way of love, again!

    Great episode. It combines 2 minor story arcs with a 3rd which was to become a major story. Frasier vs Eddie and Roz's private life gets a longer outing and the Daphne and Niles story seems to get some head of steam up. It's one of the funniest and saddest episodes of the whole series. Martins response to Niles and Rodney meeting at Frasiers is pure classic. When his friend Duke calls Martin fobs him off with a "Not now Duke, I'm in the Twilight Zone" had me laughing so much I had to pause the TV because I was missing the dialogue. It's hard to believe that it took the writers another 90 episodes for Daphne to know how Niles feels and another 48 episodes on from that before they marry. This sets the groundwork for the kind of relationship they would have all the way through - the writers mae sure that they would really love each other on so many levels.
    After so much laughter the pathos of the final scene stands in stark relief.
