Storyline

It Frasier's birthday, and since he's never had a birthday party, the gang at the bar go all out and throw him one. However they make him do all the work for it. Lilith is trying to figure out what to get, and has decided on professional photographs of herself done for him. Hiring Woody's nemesis Henrí as photographer, Lilith initially doesn't quite know what kind of photos to take - composed and formal or seductive - and ends up doing her own kind of seductive. It's definitely not Norm's birthday as Vera has lost her job. What's worse, Rebecca gets Vera a job as a hat check girl at Melville's. As such, Vera has in Norm's opinion invaded his sanctuary. He's a nervous wreck knowing that "she" is up there. A work related incident shows everyone how Norm really feels about his wife, especially when she's not in the vicinity of Cheers.

It's a Wonderful Wife (#9.20)
21 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Hill fires his hat check girl and needs to hire somebody else. At the same time Vera loses her job and Norm asks Rebecca to help him get her hired. She ends up working for Hill now. It does ruin Norm's bar experience but then she gets fired and he stands up for her because he does love Vera.

Once again we have one of those episodes where Norm's love for Vera comes out even though he always rants about her. Although at the same time he never wants to be around her or help with making money for the house, strange love I must say but I guess we all are different.

Frasier's birthday substory was alright thanks to Lilith's picture that she made for him and the fun, only unfortunately short photesession we got to watch.
