Frasier plans to introduce himself to a beautiful woman he has seen at the opera, but brings Martin along to the opera so as not to look lonely. The woman's mother takes a shine to Martin, and he pretends to be gay to deflect her advances. Frasier makes his overture, and Emily comes to his apartment for a nightcap, bringing along her uncle, Edward, as a date for Martin. Written by
