  • If you can't run a restaurant, I do not recommend you take a risk and try to do so.

    One of the Crane Brothers' favourite restaurants is closing- and, of course, they cannot allow that to happen. They buy out the restaurant, despite warnings from their father. And boy, they should have listened.

    It doesn't take long before the brothers end up scaring off all of the staff, and are forced to run the restaurant- including, of course, the kitchen- entirely by themselves- which, as anyone who watches Frasier would know, is a recipe for disaster.

    And how fortunate are they that everyone shows up: Roz, Martin and Daphne, Bulldog, and even radio food critic Gil Chesterton. Roz is put to work in the kitchen, but it is of no use; a dessert explodes, and everybody is forced to leave the restaurant- while it may seem like a curse to most, Frasier takes it as a blessing. Naturally, Bulldog remains blissfully unaware of what is going on in the restaurant from his special seat by the restroom.

    The episode is very funny throughout, and certainly deserves its place as one of the best episodes of the series.
