On top of that, he's snobbish and dictatorial. So they fire him. Inadvertently, Norm, by just moving a chair in their living room so that he can spackle a wall, causes Lilith and Frasier to gush about the great placement of the chair in its new location. Norm really does show his talent for what he calls color and "where to place the ottoman", and he is hired to design the Crane's apartment, which he wants kept secret from everyone at the bar. The design turns out to be exactly what Lilith and Frasier want. The Cranes recommend Norm to their yuppie friends of friends, Kim and Robert Cooperman, who also want their place redone. Norm's initial meeting with the Coopermans doesn't start off well. It's because, as Frasier tells him, the Coopermans are snobs who expect their designers, to use ... Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


The title comes from the movie Norman... Is That You? (1976). See more »


Woody Boyd: Miss Howe, I don't mean to insult you, but you're looking kind of puny. Have you lost weight?
Rebecca Howe: Is this a set up? Did Sam tell you to say that?
Woody Boyd: No, ma'am. I told myself to say it. I'm worried about you, you know, if you're not careful, you're going to start wasting away and pretty soon your ribs are going to show like this guy back in Hanover, Kyle Leffers. Course he'd been dead a while when they found him.
Rebecca Howe: Thank you, Woody. That's the nicest thing anyone's said to me all week.

Norm, Is That You? (#7.6)
4 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Norm paints Lilith and Frasier's home and gives them some decorating advice which they love and get them to decorate their home. They also have friends who love it and want to redecorate their house. But they want their decorator to be gay. For the job Norm pretends to be one. Only then he has to "come out of the closet".

What an awesome episode. Norm pretending to be gay was genius. The little hand thing he did when he first started to play this part was great. So was him saying that Carla is a transsexual. And him introducing them to Sam and the "btw,we are lovers" line and the reaction of Sam to it were perfect.
