The rift between Martin and his sons' tastes is bridged when they find they are all fans of "The Antique Roadshow." The boys have a great time watching it on TV, and when the Roadshow comes to Seattle, they all go. Martin takes along an old family heirloom, a rather ugly pewter clock. Frasier and Niles are stunned to hear that it was originally made for the Romanovs (the Russian royal dynasty). Believing the clock is a link to their own royal blood, Frasier and Niles launch an investigation into its origins.

After Dr. Myshkin (Robertson Dean
) leaves, the beautifully-bound diary of Princess Sonja Romanoff is still lying on Frasier's (Kelsey Grammer
) coffee table. Dr. Myshkin said that it was a "copy" and therefore may have been meant as a gift for Frasier, but that point is never made. See more
When Dr. Myshkin leaves, he takes the clock but neglects to also take the diary of Sonya Romanoff, daughter to Tsar Alexander II that he had brought with him to 'prove' that the clock was stolen. See more

Our cousin Dotie's wedding was last week, oh excuse me, cousin Dotie's "weddin". The western theme. On the response card, it asked for our chili preference, mild or kickin'.
