Storyline

Frasier has a massive headache, and no matter what he does, it won't go away. For Frasier, Lilith suggests he take an extreme measure: acupuncture or at least acupressure. Believing it quackery, Frasier initially won't do it, until... The process isn't quite what Lilith expects. What will go away if the US government and Woody have their way is Henrí, whose Visa has run out. Henrí mentions that a way he could stay is to marry a US citizen, an idea on which Kelly picks up, with her being the bride. Woody doesn't like the idea. Woody and Kelly have an argument over it, which pushes Kelly into marrying Henrí, she believes only "on paper". They would get divorced immediately after, but Henrí may have other thoughts. This action by Kelly could jeopardize Woody's immediate future plan to ask Kelly to marry him, and thus jeopardize their long term future together. Written by Huggo

Helps push Woody and Kelly's character arc along, but the writing can be trying at times
6 September 2011 | by uruseiranmaSee all my reviews

A subplot about Frasier experiencing a headache quickly takes a backseat to the love triangle of Woody Boyd, Kelly Gaines, and French Lothario, Henri. Overall, the episode feels like a race to not only cause tension, but to wrap up this subplot and move Woody and Kelly onto new territory. However, what may really make the episode excruciating is the writing for Kelly's character.

It's pretty obvious from previous episodes that Woody and Kelly are not the sharpest knives in the drawer, but in this episode, it almost feels like they have pushed her naiveté a bit too far, making Kelly's clueless nature about Henri borderline 'annoying.'
