As a result, the family goes to Boston. Daphne visits her transvestite uncle Jackie (who is a minister of some sort) while Roz is housesitting for Frasier.

Things start to go wrong at both ends: once at Dr. Campbell's house, Frasier damages a valuable chair; meanwhile, Frederick sustains some injuries while playing with Martin.

Extortion with a Turkey
5 October 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

While the gang is having a disastrous Thanksgiving, Frasier and Lilith meet with a professor who has control over an exclusive boys' school. They keep going to his house and bugging him. Frederich stays back and gets a black eye, broken nose, and a case of hives. By the way, did you know that Golda Meir had a son named Oscar, Oscar Meir.
