Did You Know?


Myra Carter, plays Mrs Warner, the mother of Clarise Warner (played by Constance Towers). This is despite the fact that in real life she is only three years older. See more »


Daphne, who is established in the series as still using British slang, threatens to smack Eddie on his "fanny" if he continues to disrupt Martin's therapy. While "fanny" is slang for the buttocks in American English, it's slang for the vagina in British English, making it a very strange thing for Daphne to say. See more »


Martin: You kill me, you know. You get exactly what you want and you're still not happy. Frasier, life is not hard: you make it hard. You don't just let things happen and enjoy it, you gotta analyze everything to death. You could learn a big lesson from this dog here.

Martin: You know what makes him happy? A sock!

Slow start to an otherwise excellent season.
22 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off, almost all Frasier episodes are excellent, a cut above anything else on TV at the time. Having said that, this particular one isn't a very good example of the series. Its slow and tedious, and even worse not particularly funny. The vast majority of the jokes come in the first third and then it gets serious, but not in a particularly touching manner. The episode tries to come across as sweet and melancholy but really just falls flat. The last third is especially slow and free of any funny material. It is very nice to hear about the events which shaped Frasiers childhood but they did it in such a hammy way the view doesn't care much about his experiences.

Niles gets in a few zingers and has some more time getting close to Daphne, Martin has a couple of great lines, but overall its not enough to drag this episode up from mediocrity.

This is a shame as we are just coming off an excellent season finale (possibly the best of all 11 seasons) and the rest of season 2 is actually quite good. In fact it has some of the very best episodes of the entire series. But its a poor start and I wonder how many people may have quit watching early just because of this one.

If you consider yourself a fan you should probably see it for the sake of completeness and also some good insight into Frasiers character, just don't expect to be entertained. Luckily things improve a great deal in the next episode.
