*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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
