Storyline

He is in town without his wife, Valerie, which he says is a good way to test his theories. He says he has been celibate for 10 months while on tour. Rebecca construes a private conversation between the doctor and her as an unwanted come-on. In public, she is visibly hostile toward him. Sam and Frasier don't believe her story is a come-on as she believes. Sam and Frasier convince her that she could be wrong, so she apologizes to Dr. Crandell.

Later in his hotel room, Dr. Crandell propositions the gullible young chambermaid named Maria just as Rebecca, with Sam clandestinely in tow, come by to have the doctor admit that he did come on to her.

The Visiting Lecher (#7.22)
6 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Frasier's friend Dr. Lawrence Crandell comes over. He has been away from his wife for 10 months because of work and was celibate all this time. Now he comes on to Rebecca but nobody wants to believe her. She brings Sam to Dr. Lawrence Crandell's hotel room to prove it to him. But there is also a chambermaid Dr got for his date and a violinist. And then his wife comes and all 4 of them have to hide in the closet.

A pretty funny episode. This is why I like Rebecca way more than Diane. Diane was almost never funny. She was bearable most of the time but Rebecca is fun and in some episodes like this absolutely hilarious. Cheers got lucky by getting her
