Storyline

Frasier is not having a good day. First his latest paper is attacked by a noted colleague, then second he comes down with an uncontrollable case of the hiccups. But his troubles are nothing compared to Rebecca's. Evan Drake, her boss and unrequited love, comes by the bar at a time when she is a physical mess from changing a tire. That and the fact that she has turned down every date from men in the company has led Mr. Drake to suspect that she is a lesbian, which Rebecca is horrified to learn. Mr. Drake invites Rebecca and whomever she chooses to be her date - perhaps a woman? - to a black-tie function. Since Rebecca has not had a date in the two years she's been lusting after Mr. Drake, she doesn't have a man upon who she call to bring. Sam volunteers, and based on circumstances, Rebecca takes him up on his offer. At the party, she, in her mind, needs to convince Mr. Drake that she is not only a heterosexual but that she is attracted to him. Her bold but unexpected actions evoke a ... Written by Huggo

Evan Drake's Party
29 April 2011 | by (New York, NY USA) – See all my reviews

Sam preys on Rebecca's insecurities to get a date with her, during which she loses control and lunges at her crush Evan Drake. This is a strange episode, forgettable, and rather unlikable. The highlight is surely Evan mistaking Rebecca for a lesbian because it's all downhill from there.

Sam accompanies Rebecca to a corporate party- ostensibly to protect her reputation- but really to get into her panties. Frasier is stuck in the saddest B-story of them all when he comes down with a case of incurable hiccups: the broad physical comedy is out of place on the otherwise mellow Cheers. It's a shame there weren't more exchanges between Evan and Woody.... Mr. Drake looks ready to slap him after a mere five minutes.

The final moments of the episode are reminiscent of the Diane years as the Evan-Rebecca-Sam love triangle spars in the office. Evan's final speech is a bit heavy-handed and unrealistic, and we're left in the frustrating position of knowing that in spite of everything that's taken place nothing has changed for any of the characters. This episode also features the worst line to ever come out of Frasier's mouth: "Goose-poop, Sam- the man's a yahoo!"

Advance.
