  • Great!

    This episode is really cool. Martin is convince that he wants to pay out an invitation but Frasier never accepts. Later on, they go out to a restaurant where Frasier and Niles pretend to like an art in order to get better seats and foods, and Martin buys the art that they "like" in order for them to feel being bought by their parent. Frasier can't stan facing the horrible painting, and when he tells his father about it, everyone ends up crying. What a really cool episode!
  • Martin buys a painting for Frasier.

    Martin who misinterprets Frasier's comments about a painting, and buys it for him, of course Frasier doesn't like it, but is to afraid to teal his father that, in fear that he will hurt his feelings, Its not until Niles tells Martin that the wine rack he bought him doesn't go with his apartment, does Frasier get the courage to tell his dad what he thinks of the painting.

    My favorite part of the episode was after Frasier told Martin that he didn't like the painting, that Martin started crying, then Frasier started crying because he made Martin cry, then Niles started crying stating that no one will come to his party. The whole scene was hilarious.

    Frasier even takes time to study the painting, maybe even like it, but no such luck.
  • Favourite Episode

    This I believe is Kelsey Grammer's favourite episode and I would say is mine. Martin wants to do something nice for Frasier and so buys him a painting at a restaurant that Frasier insincerely told the manager he liked, to get a good table. He also buys something for Niles which Niles turns down - although Martin takes this rejection well he doesn't when Frasier admits he dislikes the picture. Niles is also trying to arrange a party and Maris is stealing all his guests away for her own date-clashing do. The scenes culminate in Martin, Frasier and Niles all crying in a brilliantly funny scene. Most episodes have a standout performance of one person, but here you have Kelsey Grammer, David Hyde Pierce and John Mahoney all at the top of their game, which is why I have chosen it.
