Frasier receives the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Seattle Broadcasting Awards. His mentor from Harvard, Professor William Tewksbury, sends him a congratulatory basket of flowers, with a note attached. Frasier over-analyzes the wording of the note and visits Tewksbury, who unearths that Frasier is experiencing deeper emotional problems.
