Quotes

[first lines]
Frasier: Ah, yes. Another beautiful Saturday night. The moon is full, the city lights are twinkling, lovers steal kisses in the park... and here, Chez Crane, my father and his assistant sit hunched over twenty year old photographs of a murdered hooker.
[raises his glass]
Frasier: Life is a banquet.

Frasier and the monkey
9 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

The strength of this episode is the fact that the plot enables all of the main characters (except Roz, who as ever is underused) to interact with each other. It's also nice to see the high and mighty Frasier be made to look foolish at the end.

It's a good episode, full of strong lines, and some nice interplay especially between Frasier and Martin.

It's been an up and down second series of the show in my opinion, but this is a notable up.
