The central plot of this episode involves Martin struggling with his feelings of guilt after realising he loves Sherry, given that he never expected to love anyone else after Hester died. But Martin has already admitted to loving Sherry in the aptly titled "Frasier" (1993) {Dad Loves Sherry, the Boys Just Wine (#4.9)}_: he tells Frasier and Niles that his late wife's ability to always find something to like about a person was one of the things he loved about her and is one of the things he loves about Sherry. While this episode is the first time that Martin actually says this to Sherry, it's played out as though Martin has only just realised this himself when clearly he hasn't. See more »

Worth Noting For One Joke
28 December 2007 | by See all my reviews

Typical Frasier episode, with the Crane up to his usual buffoonery.

But I want to note one particular incident in this episode (actually a two-parter).

Daphne has made Frasier aware of someone watching the goings-on in the elevator with the security camera.

Later, with nothing to do with anything else in the plot, Frasier is about to tuck in his shirt, then stops and eyes the camera.

No, he won't be viewed in this personal moment with this camera, so Frasier opens up his umbrella to block the camera's view, then begins tucking in his shirt.

His pants fall down.

The door to the lift now opens with Frasier standing there, holding his pants around his knees and having the umbrella open.

Daphne, by now at Roz's level of unimpressed or unsurprised by Crane behavior, simply observes him as he waddles out of the elevator and she enters.

Daphne looks up at the unseen camera and simply says "he's been under a lot of stress." It would be simple things like this, unconnected to anything else in the episode, that began to make Frasier even better.

I mark this one because years from now I will be wondering which episode it was that Frasier had an umbrella and his pants down in the elevator.

It was this one.
