Storyline

Ludlow is Carla's son, fathered by Frasier's mentor, Dr. Bennett Ludlow. Ludlow has some of his father in him: he's an intellectual and enjoys cultural things in life, like the opera and classical music, unlike Carla's other children. Frasier and Lilith want to take Ludlow to the opera, both because they want to help Ludlow further his interest in the arts, but also to find out if they are parent material as they're thinking about having children of their own. Ludlow is enamored with the opera and Frasier and Lilith are equally as enamored with Ludlow and want to do more cultural activities with him. Carla feels like she's losing him to another social class. After a week of Frasier and Lilith doing everything with Ludlow, Carla puts her foot down when they want to take him out to the most exclusive restaurant in town, if only because she wants some time with her own son. But Carla gives in yet again. However Sam talks Frasier and Lilith into asking Carla along as well. At dinner, the ... Written by Huggo

Frasier and Lilith adopt Carla's son Ludlow to test their skills as potential parents. Turns out Dr. Cyclops and Morticia hit the mother lode as Ludlow Tortelli enjoys opera, symphonies and experimental cinema. Somewhere along the way Carla becomes upset that the Cranes are treating her son so well so they take her out to dinner to make it up to her.

FRASIER: "Carla is a fine woman, and a close friend... actually, she's neither, and why would I want to go to dinner with her?"

The sub-plot features Woody asking to borrow Sam's car for his first date with Kelly. This is a good episode with some classic Kelsey Grammar slow burns... and the announcement at the end that Lilith is already pregnant is just the cherry on top of the sundae.
