Episode complete credited cast:


Frasier and Diane bring Dr. Bennett Ludlow, Frasier's mentor, to the bar for a drink. Both Frasier and Diane are in awe of the man. Two weeks after that night, Carla has been getting expensive flowers from a secret admirer, and Dr. Ludlow has been canceling plans with Frasier and Diane. Frasier and Diane think that Dr. Ludlow doesn't want them as social companions. However, Sam believes that the coincidence between Carla's flowers, the nights she wants off and the nights where Dr. Ludlow cancels plans with Frasier and Diane is just a little too much. Could Dr. Ludlow be Carla's secret admirer? Frasier and Diane think the idea ludicrous. They learn that night by witnessing Dr. Ludlow and Carla's embrace that Sam is indeed right, much to Diane and Frasier's horror. Frasier implies to Dr. Ludlow that he would be better to return to his own social circle after this walk on the wild side, but they all, including Frasier and Diane, come to accept and support the relationship once Dr. Ludlow...

Did You Know?


When Carla enters the front door of Cheers, an off-screen cast member (or possibly an extra) in a trench coast is partially visible. The trench coat is similar to the one Dr. Ludlow is wearing when he enters through that door minutes later, meaning the partially visible person is likely actor James Karen. See more »


Frasier Crane: [about the possibility that Bennett Ludlow and Carla are dating] Sam, you're talking about one of the most distinguished and accomplished men of letters I know, dating a common barmaid.
Sam Malone: You're dating a barmaid.
Frasier Crane: Well, she wasn't a barmaid when I met her.
Sam Malone: Oh, that's right, that's right. She was a lunatic.

Whodunit? (#3.13)
10 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Frasier and Diane spend some time with Frasier's psychiatry mentor. And after that he keeps on cancelling on them and Frasier is very worried. Turns out this guy has been dating Carla and he is in love with her, he even proposes to her. She i also pregnant now from him but she decides not to.

A pretty good episode even though the ending is stupid. There was no reason not to. This whole being in love with somebody she didn't meet yet only works with teenage characters.

But Frasier was great. All his worries about the spot on the guy's tie, obsessing why he keeps on cancelling and the scream he let out when seeing him kissing Carla were great. Just as Coach with "it is none of your business" story.
