Sam gets a call from an old flame, Judy Marlowe. Sam and Judy haven't seen each other in fifteen years. Back then, Judy, a divorcée, and Sam spent much of their time together with Judy's young daughter, Laurie. Upon meeting again, Sam is relieved to see that Judy is still a knock-out. What he doesn't expect though is that Laurie is now all grown up and is equally as beautiful as her mother. Sam being Sam has the hots for both Judy and Laurie, and beyond the warnings of Frasier, tries to date both. Meanwhile, Rebecca hires Woody as a clown to entertain at a corporate children's party. At the last minute, Woody is called in for a real acting job and has to ditch the party clown job. Rebecca demands that Frasier take Woody's place as he was the one who suggested she hire Woody.

What's worse for the unsuspecting ... Written by Huggo

Carla LeBec: Sammy, first of all, that was back when you were drinking like a fish. And second of all, that was one chick.

Send in the Crane (#7.9)
5 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rebecca is organizing a party and needs a clown for the kids. She hires Woody for it an he is very excited but then leaves because he finally gets to go on stage as an understudy. Rebecca gets Frasier to be the clown. He does a great performance, but then there is a little trick Woody forgot to tell him about.

The clown story was great. Frasier was so funny on stage. Especially when she didn't know what to do. "I am not a clown, I am a psychiatrist!". But even though we didn't get to see his pants fall down, the mental image of it was hilarious.

Sam's story with dating a mother and daughter just kind of grossed out me.
