  • Who was that guy?

    9.0
    At the very end during the credits a man sits down with Frasier, shows him something (a photo?) and Frasier leaves. Who was he and what did he show Frazier?
  • Roz convinces Frasier to date her friend Ann.

    Frasier gets talked into going out with Roz's friend Ann, and while on their date he meets Kenny's beautiful cousin Liz, who is leaving town the next day, but Kenny is trying to talk her into taking a job in Seattle.



    So Frasier tries to ditch Ann so he can spend time with her, but it backfires, when Ann comes beck into the restaurant and sees Frasier with her, promoting Liz to take an early flight out of Seattle.



    Great episode, Frasier trys to ditch his date for a more attractive woman only to have it blow up in his face, typical Frasier.moreless
  • Dating trouble.

    8.8
    Another great episode which manages to showcase exactly how confused and weird Frasier can get when he's dating, and it also shows why he hasn't had a steady date for ages, and why he probably never will.



    I loved the main story with Frasier attempting to date Ann, and then meeting a person as attractive as Liz (damn, that Krista Allen is just too hot for words). I loved how he attempted to get rid of Ann, who was just annoying, yet for some reason I didn't want to see her get her feelings hurt, heh. I just knew she would ruin things for Frasier.



    Meanwhile, the sub-story with the stealing wasn't anything special. Nothing much happened there, really.moreless

    Okay, so now I am starting to buy into the notion that Season 11 of Frasier is a bit of a letdown. Tonight we saw a random storyline with Niles and Daphne suspecting their maid was stealing from them. This came entirely out of the blue and was only covered in the span of about 4 minutes. While their teasing of the tape was funny, why not devote an episode building toward this?



    Frasier being the fifth wheel was also a really forgettable storyline. A bit too cliched for a show that is usually very original and clever in everything it does.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • The book that Ann carries with her is Likely To Die by Linda Fairstein.



    • When Frasier pays the check and is trying to get rid of Ann and she says "there's no sense in all this food going to waste" and takes out her book Frasier sees that she is not going to leave right away he could have suggested like he did before for them to wrap her food up so she could leave right away.

    • Twice at dinner with Ann, Frasier says that his phone has rung when no one else can hear it. When questioned, he need only have said that it was set on vibrate -- a considerate setting in public places where others might be disturbed.

    • Frasier was allergic to cats in "It's Hard to Say Goodbye If You Won't Leave", yet here he has no problems with them.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Frasier: Listen, Roz, I may not go out as often as you do, but that's because I have standards. Haven't you ever heard of waiting for Miss Right?
      Roz: Yeah, well, Miss Right has standards too, and she's not looking to meet Mr. Mothballs.

    • Martin: Mrs. Gablyczyck, we're friends here. No one wants to send you to jail or back to your country. We just need you to admit you took the money.
      Mrs. Gablyczyck: I no take nothing!
      Martin: You wanna go to jail? You wanna go back to your country!
