Trivia

In this episode, Sam recalls that Frasier had told him that his dad was a dead research scientist (which had happened in an episode of Cheers (1982) years earlier). This inconsistency is explained by Frasier saying that he and Martin had a fight before Frasier made that statement to Sam. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Frasier: So, that's our show for today. Don't forget, Bob "Bulldog" Brisco is up next and... oh, yes. This is KACL Cash Call Week. $5,000 when you answer your phone with the phrase that pays. So when your phone rings, don't say "hello", say...

Frasier: Well, blow me down! No, no, no, no! Just, uh, say, uh, "KACL is the talk of the town." Talk of Seattle, whatever. Bye-bye.

A wasted opportunity
13 July 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With 'Frasier' just starting to move out of the shadow of 'Cheers', the show it was spun off from it was a strange move in my opinion in this episode to bring back Sam Malone from that show, played with relish as ever by Ted Danson.

It felt oddly like a step back for the show, and I remember reading somewhere that Kelsey Grammar (Frasier) himself was unhappy with this episode, despite it being written by two good writers, and directed by the legendary James Burrows.

The first half of the episode where Frasier tries to guide Sam into a life of committing to one woman is nicely played, but the second half gets a bit silly, with a plot that adds nothing to the Frasier/Sam dynamic.

It's a shame because this episode had obvious potential, but doesn't live up to the hype.
