Storyline

Frasier comes into the bar a little down. Work is getting to him. Diane suggests to Sam that he ask Frasier to tag along on the guy's fishing trip with Norm, Cliff, Tim and Alan. Sam doesn't want to ask the depressed, outdoor inexperienced and boring Dr. Crane, but does so when he feels like he can't avoid it. Frasier, thinking that it'll do him some good to get away and do some male bonding, agrees. But the trip ends up being slightly different than what both Sam and Frasier first envision. The gang decide to go snipe hunting instead, initiating Frasier into the ritual as being the one who actually holds the gunny sack in the bagger's position and does the snipe call while the others go off and search the snipe out. The catch: there is no such thing as a snipe, so there is no reason for the others to search out something that doesn't exist. In other words, they left Frasier out in the woods by himself holding a gunny sack purely as a gag. Diane is furious with them. Just as Diane ... Written by Huggo

The Heart Is a Lonely Snipehunter (#3.14)
11 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Frasier is in a bit of a bad mood. Sam and the gang from the bar are getting ready for the fishing trip. Diane makes Sam take Frasier with them on a trip. They play a trick on him by making a snipe hunt even though a snipe doesn't exist and leave him in the woods. He comes back and Diane wanting to protect his feelings tells Sam and the guys not to tell him he was tricked. But this makes them go again with the trick, only Frasier already has figured it out and plans revenge.

An amusing episode with a great Frasier performance in it. The character is hilarious. And the twist at the end when Frasier turns out to know that there is no snipe makes it even better.
