On February 29th, Frasier advises all of his friends and family to "take a leap" in the spirit of leap year, and do something daring and spontaneous. Martin decides to fly to Montana for a buddy's party, Daphne tries an experimental haircut, Roz sends out an on-air call to a handsome stranger she met on the bus. All the leaps go disastrously wrong, and Frasier has doubts about his own resolve to sing a challenging aria at the PBS pledge drive instead of the usual "Buttons and Bows." Maris summons Niles for a sexual tryst, but Frasier advises him to resist the temptation. Written by
