Niles suggests to Maris that they go into marriage counseling; she responds by serving him with divorce papers. Daphne tries to throw out a box of Martin's unused junk. Frasier and Niles look through it and find an old scientific journal by their mother. She observes that Frasier has a fear of physical contact, and Niles is easily cowed by females. Niles confesses that he returned the divorce papers with a groveling note begging Maris to take him back. While Maris is away, he and Frasier sneak into her mansion to steal them back. Written by
