Frasier's cousin, Nikos, is getting married. His mother Zora, Frasier's aunt-by-marriage, has blacklisted the Crane family since Frasier advised Nikos to follow his heart in choosing his career (which meant dropping out of medical school to be a street juggler). Knowing that Martin misses his brother, Walt, Frasier begs Zora for forgiveness, and she joyfully invites them to the wedding. Niles is less than thrilled, knowing that it means seeing their man-hungry Cousin Yvonne again. At the rehearsal dinner, Frasier is troubled. To him it is obvious that Nikos misses his old girlfriend, and that his wealthy fiancée is only aiming a barb at her snobbish parents. He is hesitant to speak out, knowing that Zora will dismember him if he does. Written by
Did You Know?
The common expression Beware of Greeks bearing gifts; refers to ruse used during the Trojan Wars. In that war the Greek's in an effort to avoid a long siege built a large wheeled wooden horse and left it outside the Trojan gates as they appeared to sail away. The horse was hollow and contained a few soldiers who came out at night after the Trojans had spent a night celebrating. They killed the guards and since the Greek's had secretly returned they entered the city and killed all the Trojans. Out of this came the saying Beware of Greeks bearing gifts. See more
