  • So as you can see this is one of the most well writen episodes of all time. Just get out and watch it.

    "The Friend" has one of the best storylines in the history of forever. I know that's a bold statement but if you know anything about Frasier, you will love this episode. To start with, the clever plot of Frasier trying to find a friend is briliant. While Frasier goes off with his new "friend" Niles tries to find a friend to show Frasier that he can also get friends.
