  • Frasier has a recurring dream about a co-worker, and it isn't Roz.

    Frasier becomes bothered by his recurring dream involving a hotel room, the name "Chesty" tattooed on his arm, and Gil Chesterton, emerging from the bath room in a towel.

    Frasier then tells Niles about his dream, and they frantically try and figure out what it means, not to mention Frasier gets ridiculed about it because Roz can't keep her mouth shut.

    Every time they think they know why Frasier is having it, and that the dream will stop, it doesn't, its not until confronting his father about the full details of the dream does Frasier realize what the dream means, and it stops, only that Gil is replaced with Dr. Sigmund Freud, who Frasier is often quoting throughout episodes.

    I enjoyed this episode I like Eddie’s dream where he's jumping trying to get a roll, then wakes up and acts out his dream, never a dull moment with Eddie.
  • Frasier has a peculiar dream.

    We all know Frasier was one of the smartest television shows of the 90's, but what's great about it is how they don't reduce to taking cheap shots to produce laughs. Imagine this episode's plot: Frasier has a dream about a man and consults his father and brother about on an episode of Two and a Half Men. The inappropriate jokes would be endless, but Frasier is able to handle the situation in a classy way.

    And this was a truly classic episode. Top-notch humor, and although Niles and Martin struggled to get too much screen time they were great with what they were given.
