[playing a game called "I'm the Dullest Person"]
Frasier: If I was going to go I would say, "I am the dullest person because I have never been on a rollercoaster." All right? And then all of you that have been on a rollercoaster would give me a penny. Now we all have our pennies. Who would like to go first? Daphne?
Daphne: I can't think of anything.

One of the better season finales.
23 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Frasier had tons of good episodes in 11 seasons and the the premiers & finales were often particularly good. This one stands out as even better than most of those. The writing is solid, the jokes are funny, and it manages to be genuinely touching without getting overly mushy. They found a plausible excuse to have the lights out and actually use the fireplace which lends a certain atmosphere for the intimate conversation.

Much like the first season finale this one does a great job reflecting on the growth and changes happening with the characters and how they relate to each other. Frasier comes home expecting a nice evening and instead fixes everyone's issues. He even refers to Roz and Daphne as extended family.

A great episode and one that should be used as an example to folks who haven't yet seen the series and don't know what all the hype is about.
