Frasier has purchased a painting by one of Seattles' hottest painters
Martha Paxton. He mentions it on his radio show and before you know it,
she's on the phone asking to come round and see it. Hastly, Frasier organises
a cocktail party in the paintings honour with Martha as guest of honour
but Eddie is licking the food, Martin embarrasses Frasier by showing guests
pictures of murder victims and Niles is hot on Daphne's trail. Finally,
Martha Paxton arrives but when she sees the painting, she announces to
everyone that she didn't paint it. Frasier goes back to the art dealer
where he bought the painting and asks for his money back, but he refuses
even though it is a fake. Determined to see justice done, he thinks about
taking matters into his own hands and goes back to the dealership armed
with a brick, but Niles manages to stop him just in time.

|Frasier Online Episode Review|
A wonderful first half with Frasier being especially snobby and then having his world wrecked by learning his prized Martha Paxton painting is a fake with a killer line from Martin that ends the first half. The second half is less amusing but throws up a great moment when Niles learns of his nicknames at school, notably Peachfuzz, and throws a brick throw the shop window in revenge, ending what is an enjoyable if rather average episode.
