Storyline

Frasier has been having a recurring dream, one where he wakes up in a cheap hotel room. He has a tattoo on his arm that says "Chesty" and he's obviously not alone as someone is in the shower. Frasier waits in anticipation but is shocked when Gil Chesterton steps out wrapped in a towel. He begins to obsess over what it means and gets a variety of opinions. Niles of course searches for a scientific explanation. Martin thinks he's wasting his time as dreams don't ever make any sense. Roz thinks the whole situation is hilarious and Daphne thinks it has to do with fish. None of it helps Frasier. Written by garykmcd
