Dr. Clint Webber, the station's new host on health issues, is not only dazzlingly handsome, but also an Oxford graduate, a gourmet chef, a star athlete, and a polyglot. Frasier makes a pretense of friendliness, but after a while admits his jealousy and searches for a flaw, any flaw, in Clint's seeming perfection. Martin makes fun of a gourmet foods store that Niles frequents, and its French proprietor, Robert, but is forced to apologize when Eddie becomes hooked on the store's dog food. Written by crouchbk

Did You Know?


When Niles asks about "Swiss prosciutto," the shopkeeper reiterates with the correct name "Buendnerfleisch." The Italian term "prosciutto" was probably chosen by the writers for the benefit of the American audience in order to give viewers a point of reference - prosciutto is widely available in the States and the process of making it is relatively well-known. There are a few other notable differences between prosciutto and Buendernfleisch, some of which are: 1) prosciutto is made from pork, Buendnerfleisch from beef; 2) Buendnerfleisch undergoes several weeks of maceration before being air-dried, prosciutto is salted, pressed, and then air-dried; 3) although travelers are prohibited from bringing either type of meat into the US, prosciutto is commonly imported into the US, Buendnerfleisch rarely is. This helps to explain Niles's excitement at the prospect of buying it in the shop. See more »


In this episode Frasier introduces Clint Webber to Roz as though they've never met before, but in a previous episode of "Frasier" this season: 'The Zoo Story' #5.12, Roz's agent Bebe Glazer gets Roz a weekly spot on Clint Webber's show, so, presumably they should have met before. See more »

With the underrated Bill Campbell
27 September 2007 | by (wisconsin) – See all my reviews

I'm watching Frasier more methodically now that it's in syndication. And I appreciate the writing, timing, and guest casting more than ever. This episode features the drop-dead gorgeous Bill Campbell, playing a drop-dead gorgeous doctor. Campbell's good looks were used similarly in an episode of Star Trek Next Generation: The Outrageous Okana. Both roles required a dazzlingly good-looking man, and of course, Campbell qualifies.

Campbell deserves points just because he has enough moxie to acknowledge the way his looks are revered and to exploit them for comedy. It's been done by other actors, of course, but there are very few of this generation who have done it well. An exception might be Brad Pitt's turn on Friends. I can't really think of others. When actors look this good, they've got to be extraordinarily skilled to put the comedy across.

Both Pitt and Campbell have Apollo-like builds, but only Campbell has the Apollo face. Pitt isn't classically good looking, but that gives him sex appeal. Campbell is classically good looking, but some people doubtless find it too "pretty" to be sexy. His career has probably suffered as a result. His looks have almost certainly disqualified him from many meaty, attention-getting dramatic roles. This is too bad, because he's really an accomplished actor.

This episode of Frasier proves the point. In this role, his character is everyone's idea of perfection, until he sings off key. Some people sing that way naturally, of course, but never in the perfectly atrocious (and funny) way as when it's deliberate. (Remember Jo Stafford as bad lounge singer Darlene Edwards?) Campbell does it perfectly, something that is very, very difficult to do. Try it yourself and you'll see what I mean.

I tell you, for all his handsomeness, the man is underrated as an actor.
