Owing to an item of misdirected mail, Frasier learns of a very exclusive new spa in Seattle called La Porte d'Argent. When he discovers that membership is strictly by invitation only, he persuades Niles to masquerade as Cam Winston (whose name is on the list) so they can get past the receptionist. Once inside, they find the service expensive but excellent, and are quite contented until they discover that there is an even more exclusive gold membership. Roz calls in a favor to get the brothers admitted, and they enjoy the luxurious pampering - until they notice yet another door, this one completely unguarded. Believing it to be the entrance to an even higher level of membership, they sneak through only to find themselves locked out of the spa in its garbage-strewn back alley. At the same time, Martin and Daphne are struggling to bond after she became his daughter-in-law, finding a common fondness of old television shows like M*A*S*H.
Did You Know?
The name of the upscale day spa that Frasier and Niles visit is aptly named La Porte D'argent, which is French for "The Silver Door." Furthermore, "argent" also means "money" in French. See more
When Martin and Daphne are watching TV together, they keep referring to the show as "Rockford", but in reality it was called "The Rockford Files". However the show was often referred to casually or colloquially as simply Rockford. See more
I'm sorry, but you're more than welcome to enjoy the many amenities of the silver level.
