Did You Know?


In this episode, Martin mentions how he doesn't like or understand opera, when in real life it was John Mahoney (Martin) who was a fan of opera and wine, while David Hyde Pierce (Niles) wasn't into either of those things. See more »


Frasier: He goes too far!
Roz Doyle: Yeah, some nerve, ditching you to spend Valentine's Day with his girlfriend.
Martin: Look, Frasier, I don't blame you for being a little jealous because he's got someone and you don't...
Frasier: I am not jealous, Dad! I am simply appalled by his rudeness. I was looking forward to this evening. A nice drink, lovely opera, then a late supper... perhaps a beautiful bottle of wine... a delightful dessert souffle... oh, God, I need a woman.

Brilliant farce
11 May 2011 | by HRHRaiderSee all my reviews

One of the funniest episodes of this series. While substituting for Niles at the Opera on Valentine's Day, Martin claims to be gay to avoid getting fixed up with the mother of a woman Frasier is interested in. Martin gets some comeuppance when Frasier's date then brings along her gay uncle as a match for Martin. Niles gets dragged into the charade, and David Hyde Pierce is at his best. When I first watched this episode, it reminded me of the Christmas episode from Season 6, where the Cranes pretend to be Jewish so as to not offend the mother of Frasier's new Jewish girlfriend. As luck would happen the Christmas episode aired as a syndicated rerun later that very night.
