(Daphne comes out of her room behind Niles)
Niles: Darling... oh, darling, it occurred to me that perhaps we should keep this quiet from Daphne.
Daphne: Keep what quiet?
Mel: Oh, we can't keep something like this a secret! (takes Niles's hand) We got married!
Daphne: (freezes for a second, then) Did you?
(Behind Niles and Mel, Frasier looks heartsick)
Niles: Yes, while we were out of town. But the last thing we want is to upstage you and Donny, so we are not mentioning this outside this room.
(Mel makes a little lip-locking gesture)
Daphne: (coming to them and taking each of their hands) Well, I am just so happy for you both.
Niles: We're having champagne. Would you like to join us?
Daphne: Oh, I'd love to. But I have to get a check down to the caterers, they're closing early today.
Frasier: Let me drive you over, Daphne.
Daphne: Oh, no, I'm fine. Congratulations again. Oh, save a glass for me.
(She goes out into the hallway. We follow as she pushes the button for the elevator. Her shoulders shake with sobs she is holding back. As the elevator doors open, her face breaks and she lets out a sob. Mrs. Richman is standing there with her basket. She puts it down, opens her arms and takes Daphne into a hug to cry on her shoulder)
