On what turns out to be a less than romantic dinner date for Frasier and Diane due to some unfortunate circumstances concerning the renowned restaurant's longtime chef/owner, Frasier, regardless, decides to go ahead with his plan to ask Diane to marry him. He has made arrangements for the ceremony to take place the following day at a romantic Florentine estate. Caught off guard by the question, Diane, who still has feelings for Sam, tries one last ditch attempt to get some sort of commitment from him by calling him at Cheers. Without directly asking for that commitment, Diane tells Sam of Frasier's proposal. Sam is unable to give Diane that commitment since he believes she called just to gloat about her happiness. So Diane accepts Frasier's proposal. In the sober realization of the post telephone call, Sam thinks that he made a big mistake by not telling Diane not to marry Frasier.

Rescue Me (#3.25)
13 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In Italy Frasier takes Diane to a great restaurant to propose to her,only it is a sad day as their chef died. Before she even says "yes", she goes to call Sam to tell it to him but he just congratulates her on the wedding that is to take place next day in Florence. Later he decides to fly there to stop the wedding. On the way to Florence Diane calls Sam but mistakes his answering machine for him and as she sees that he is in the bar she tells Frasier they should just marry in the small town.

A great finale as we are left not knowing how it will end up with a little twist that the wedding now will take place not where Sam thinks. It is funny though that Diane mistook answering machine for Sam, I guess back then people were just getting used to the answering machines.
