Frasier and Nanette married and divorced when they were very young - when Frasier was still in medical school - and he hasn't seen or thought about her since then. When Nanny G wanders through the audience, she instantly recognizes him, a fact Frasier, Lilith and the rest of the audience obviously realize when Nanny G passionately kisses Frasier. Lilith is angry, but Frasier and Nanette apologize to her. As an act of good faith, Nanny G offers to perform at Frederick's private birthday party. Lilith reluctantly lets it happen despite the fact that the ... Written by Huggo

One Hugs, the Other Doesn't (#10.16)
26 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

For Frederick's second birthday the Cranes take him to a concert by Nanny G. Frasier recognizes her on stage and turns out it is his first wife. She ends up giving him a kiss. To calm Lilith down Frasier gets Nanny G to the bar to apologize and also have a concert for the neighborhood kids, but it doesn't end as well as planned.

One of the great Cranes episodes! I absolutely love Lilith in it, her scary song in the bar, the way she was beating up Nanny G in the middle of the bar, all of it was perfect.

Woody being a big Nanny G fan was also kind of cute, was very much like his character and didn't go over the border to become annoying. Another cute part was Norm with that kid that looked very much like him sitting on the bar stool.

And Emma Thompson was a great guest star for this role. Very big contrast to Lilith, although I still love Lilith more
