    Daphne celebrates her birthday, Martin and Frasier get her a journal, and Niles gives her a trip to Hawaii, but Mrs. Moon, has been feeling depressed about her failed marriage so Niles convinces Daphne to take her mom to Hawaii while he travels to England to search for her father.

    Roz meanwhile is depressed about her break-up with Roger, and is worried about showing up in Wisconsin alone, Frasier says he will go with her, and in their state of vulnerability they end up sleeping together, which Roz leaves the next morning in a hurry.

    So Frasier travels to Wisconsin to talk to Roz, while Niles tries to convince Mr. Moon to return to the US with him.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • It seems odd that Frasier was able to pass for Roger at Roz's family gathering. Was her mother not there, who had met Frasier a few years before when they tried to fix her up with Martin? Also, after nine years at Frasier's side it seems unlikely Roz would not have shared a picture of two of the reasonably famous Seattle celebrity she works with.

    • Rodgers & Hammerstein: When Frasier is mistaken for Roger by Roz's sister, and decides to play along, he calls himself "Roger Hammerstein". For those who do not know, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, better known as Rodgers & Hammerstein, are a famous American songwriting duo who are best known for their creation of a number of popular Broadway musicals in the 40s and 50s, such as The King and I and The Sound Of Music.

    • The title of this episode is a possible reference to the 1996 film "The Daytrippers".
