Storyline

While receiving massages for their holiday stress, each member of the Crane family relates the story of the last few days, with subtle differences based on their own perspectives. Martin rehearsed a song with an impossibly high note to appear in a Christmas pageant; Daphne overheard him talking about it and mistakenly thought he was dying; Niles ruined his brand-new suit while trying to escape from a stuck elevator; and Frasier mistakenly let slip to Roz's mother that she was pregnant just before they appeared together as Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Roz Doyle: Well, you should have! I am on the verge of a complete breakdown! Shopping was a disaster! And when I went to slip into this darling little costume, my pants split.
Dr. Frasier Crane: Oh!
Roz Doyle: And on top of all that, I can't stop thinking about my mom! How am I going to tell her

Good "Perspectives"
17 May 2006 | by (Puerto Rico) – See all my reviews

In this episode, which takes place between Christmas Eve and Christmas itself, we see all of the characters' (minus Eddie) perspectives on the situation developing in the episode. It's real fun to see how Martin's perspective is so based around his and Eddie's relationship, and yet, when we see the situation from Daphne's perspective, EVERYTHING Martin said about Eddie is omitted, and yet, she focuses on Niles' affection towards her. It goes on thru Niles, Roz and eventually, Frasier.

I gave this episode a 9 out of 10, because it would've been funny to see Eddie's perspective on the story (it would've made an excellent end credits clip!).
