Storyline

Frasier takes a leave of absence, and Niles fills in on his show for a week. Giving some brief advice to one of Bulldog's guests, a basketball player, Niles turns his game around. Niles is elated to be the center of attention from fans, and from Martin. He later realizes that the player's improvement has less to do with Niles's advice than a belief that ruffling his hair brings good luck. Written by crouchbk

Trivia

Only featured Frasier for the first few minutes, and the rest of the episode is entirely centered around Niles. This role should have been written for Frasier, but Kelsey Grammer wasn't available as he was being treated for his addiction problems, so it was re-written for Niles instead. This is also the reason why the plot involves Niles filling in for Frasier on his radio show, because the show is integral to the plot. See more »

Goofs

In a scene during Act 3 of the episode, the coat that Marty throws down during his tantrum moves from the landing stairs to the landing itself. See more »

Quotes

[Niles refuses to sub for Frasier during his vacation]
Frasier: Very well. You leave me no alternative but to call in my marker.
Niles: [nervous] What marker?
Frasier: Oh, I think you know.
Niles: You wouldn't.
Frasier: I would.
Niles: You can't!
Frasier: I will.
Niles: That was three years ago.
Frasier: I don't recall there being any statute of limitations. I distinctly recall that when you asked me to go out with Maris's sister, you said that you would "owe me one forever."
