The divide between the sensibilities of Diane and the rest of the gang at the bar are first highlighted by Diane's latest date, who shows up at the bar dressed in Renaissance garb. But the greater rift is displayed when Sam invites everyone, including Frasier, to his place to watch The Magnificent Seven (1960), everyone that is except Diane. It is this act that makes Diane storm out of the bar in tears as the outsider. The next day, she's still wallowing in tears of self-pity. To make it up to her, Frasier suggests that they all partake in an activity that Diane would choose, including attending her favorite opera, Lucia di Lammermoor. Frasier makes all the arrangements, all the gang have to do is show up. Will the guys be able to endure a day of doing Diane's favorite activities, and will it make Diane change her mind about her outsider status? It may, especially in how she views Sam, who she believes arranged the evening. Written by
Did You Know?
Yeah, well count me out. You know, every time we had a family gathering, they always tried to get me interested in opera. I just couldn't stand it. Just a bunch of fat, lonely people screeching and trying to stab each other.
Dr. Frasier Crane
Carla, you know, not all operas are like that.
I was talking about the family gathering.
