Storyline

Frasier is trying to add a little culture to the guys' lives by reading them Dickens. When the guys initially show disinterest, Frasier has to rewrite Dickens and add a few Cheers inspired sensibilities to the stories. Meanwhile, Rebecca is in a funk in the aftermath of her and Robin breaking up. First she locks herself in the bar office for three days - still in her wedding dress - then, with the help of Woody, his clothes, his car and his credit cards, she decides to fly back to San Diego to sort out her life. Sam leaves her a telephone voice message, which, although unintended on his part, one could construe by the actual message that he is in love with her. Rebecca calls back and leaves Sam a message saying that she is returning to Boston because of his message. Sam is in a panic since he thinks Rebecca is coming back to Boston wanting to start something serious with him. Not knowing how to deal with this, Sam resorts to devising what he calls Plan Z, the most drastic of measures.... Written by Huggo

I'm Getting My Act Together and Sticking It in Your Face (#9.17)
21 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rebecca is all devastated after what happened with Robin and sits in her wedding gown in the office. Then she puts on Woody's clothes, goes for a walk and ends up on a plane going home. Sam wants to leave her a supporting phone message but is worried he made it sound as if he wants to be with her.

Pretty funny episode. Kirsie Alley in Woody's clothes was a small part that was funny. The message leaving process was an absolute riot. Very well done.

Besides that the side story of Frasier reading Dickens to them and adding parts that he thought they would like was great as well.
