Rebecca is planning a bachelor auction at the bar to raise money for Children's Hospital. Despite Rebecca's nonchalance toward his participation, Sam ends up being one of the bachelors, as is Woody (who she actually asked). Both Sam and Woody end up regretting it because of who purchases them. Meanwhile, Lilith and Frasier are in pre-wedding mode. Frasier suggests something that is totally off the radar for Lilith, namely a pre-nuptial agreement. Lilith is shocked and hurt by Frasier's request. This act by Frasier could jeopardize the wedding, as is a resulting $2,000 act by Lilith unless Sam can come up with a plan to get the two back together again. Written by Huggo

Bidding on the Boys (#6.8)
1 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rebecca organizes a bachelor auction at the bar for a kid's charity. Sam gets himself into it and ends up being sold to Lilith for $2000. The reason she does it is because she is mad at Frasier for proposing prenuptial agreement. So Sam agrees with Frasier to come to motel to reconcile.

Well Frasier and Lilith are sure my favorites and just as always an episode with their story is absolutely awesome. I don't think Lilith would be so upset about prenuptial agreement, she is a successful and smart woman, but it is easy to overlook thanks to all then fun moments it brings. The whole auction is great, Woody being afraid of the woman tat got him was cute. Rebecca almost getting Sam was a fun way to tease us,but I am glad it didn't go this way. Lilith and Sam in the motel were too much fun.
