In the process, Sam has an unfortunate game of 'musical chairs' with Frederick, the 'chairs' being the playroom, the bathroom, the window ledge outside the playroom and bathroom, the tree outside the playroom, and the ground way, way below. The game is dictated by Frederick's movements. The question becomes will Frederick be OK, and will Sam be OK by the time Lilith and Frasier come home.

Did You Know?


When Sam goes to the bathroom to check on Fredrick, he turns off the TV. But when he goes to the window, the TV is on again. Rebecca says she has been at the bar for "5 years", but it has only been 4. I believe they skipped over a year to hasten Robin's release from prison to end that substory. See more »


Dr. Lilith Sternin-Crane: [talking about Sam babysitting Frederick] I don't know how comfortable I feel with this set-up. He's just a baby, he needs supervision.
Dr. Frasier Crane: Well, Sam can take care of it.
Dr. Lilith Sternin-Crane: I'm talking about Sam. You know how out out of control he can get at times, what a mess he can make of everything.
Dr. Frasier Crane: Well, Sam can clean it up. Oh...
Dr. Frasier CraneDr. Lilith Sternin-Crane: You're/I'm talking about Sam.
Dr. Frasier Crane: Darling, it'll just be for a few hours.
Dr. Lilith Sternin-Crane: All right, but if anything goes wrong, he could be scarred for life.
Dr. Frasier Crane: You mean Sam, right?
Dr. Lilith Sternin-Crane: Yes, and it is a threat.

Lilith and Frasier go out and need somebody to watch Frederick. They get Sam as the baby sitter. Only he has some trouble doing it. And Kelly gets a job at Cheers because she can't write her paper in sociology about the past job as she never had one, but many people take advantage to her at work.

Sam being the babysitter was a funny storyline! A very sweet baby played Frederick and Sam was great when being interested in Flintstones as well the whole story of door and window getting locked.

Kelly working in the bar was fun as well. I must say Norm seemed way too mean with basically stealing from his friend by not just getting a beer but making Kelly erase his tab.
