Frasier stumbles upon a matchmaking service on the way to his office, and takes some time explaining to the woman at the door that he is there by mistake. However, this is followed by an encounter with a former girlfriend in the elevator, and since Charlotte (the matchmaking agent, played by Laura Linney) witnesses this, Frasier decides to come quietly. After parting with $10,000, he is sent on a series of disastrous dates, and eventually loses patience and demands his money back. It is then that he discovers the business and its agent are not what they seem. Niles and Daphne have been socialising with another couple expecting a child, Brad and Cindy. This couple talk at length about all their plans for the birth, what to do with the placenta and so forth, and Brad even seems to be experiencing a sympathetic pregnancy. Determined not to be outdone, Niles and Daphne decide to hire a doula for their birth.

Did You Know?


Laura Linney plays Charlotte in this episode. Previously, in episode 10.17 Frasier: Kenny on the Couch (2003), she provided the voice of Mindy who called into Frasier's (Kelsey Grammer) radio program about her mother. Because she called from work, she had to pretend she was dealing with customers because of her boss. See more »

Age and Despair
7 November 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Fraser, desperate to find a mate, pays a woman 10,000 dollars to hook him up with possible women. We are made privy to the dates, and they are disastrous. The other plot element involves Niles and Daphne meeting a couple of yuppie soon to be parents. They are into all kinds of new age birthing, and, so, our pretentious friends decide to follow suit. There is quite a learning curve for both Frasier and our favorite couple.
