Frasier is feeling pressured by Lilith to get married, and he doesn't like it. He wants to be the man in the relationship and make the decisions. But this relationship is the first one he's ever had where he does feel sexually desirable in an animalistic sense, and wants to know what that may feel like with another woman. Norm, Cliff, Tim and Alan convince him that Rebecca has the hots for him, and Cliff even manages to get Rebecca to inadvertently give Frasier that impression. The questions become whether Frasier will decide to pursue Rebecca, which means dumping Lilith, and if he does what both Rebecca and Lilith's reactions will be. Meanwhile, the power struggle between Sam and Rebecca at the bar continues, the biggest bone of contention being who's photograph should hang in the bar: the ex-bar owner and pseudo-celebrity Sam or the current bar manager Rebecca.

Frasier In Heat
29 April 2011 | by (New York, NY USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most under-rated episodes of Season Six, in my humble opinion, as Norm and Cliff- for no reason whatsoever- dupe Frasier into believing that Rebecca is in love with him. This of course leads to Frasier ending his relationship with Lilith in order to pursue Rebecca. There's something hilarious about watching Frasier race around- panicked and confused- trying to woo Rebecca while placating Lilith.

There's a goofy subplot about Sam and Carla defacing Rebecca's picture, but I didn't find it funny in the slightest. Frasier being forced to "break up" with Rebecca while Lilith watches is hilarious, and probably the moment NBC execs started thinking about giving Kelsey Grammar his own show. And the fact that all this silliness leads up to Frasier proposing marriage makes this episode a classic.
