To mark the third anniversary of his radio program, Roz gives Frasier a tape of his very first broadcast, while he gives Roz some earrings. When he arrives home, Frasier finds Daphne on the phone to his mother trying to get out of a visit home to Manchester because she wants to go to Acapulco instead. She finds that trips home start with a wonderful reunion but there's nothing more after that to look forward to, but would feel guilty if she didn't see them. She decides to call the travel agent to see which trip would be less expensive, while Frasier settles down with Eddie to listen to the tape of his very first show....
We then flashback to the day of his first broadcast and see Frasier practicing
some vocal exercises, and then meets Roz Doyle for the first time - apparently,
Frasier has been dumped by his previous producer Dave and Roz has been
forced to take over. He wants to have no call screening, but his first
show is a disaster - during which he finds Roz angling to get transferred
to another show before telling Frasier she thinks psychiatry is a load
of bull. Later that day, Frasier and Roz are in Cafe Nervosa where she
is going through a long list of improvements that Frasier should make.
After she leaves, he sees his brother Niles who reluctantly joins him
despite not having seen him in 2 years. Niles asks if he has seen their
father yet, which Frasier hasn't, so he invites him along that afternoon.
Frasier remembers their father as a cranky old geezer, but Niles is insistent
he has changed. Once they get there, however, Frasier realises his brother
has tricked him so when Niles ups and leaves, he tries to have a conversation
with his father.....

- Daphne feels guilty about not wanting to go home to
see her family:
Daphne: Why is it so easy to love our families yet so hard to like them?
Frasier: Well, Daphne, that is the kind of question that makes life so rich - and psychiatrists richer!
- Just before his first show, Frasier learns his previous
producer has dumped him and Roz has taken over:
Frasier: Dave has 15 years of experience. I'd rather prefer he did it.
Roz: Well, that makes 2 of us, doesn't it (!)
- Frasier discovers Roz is trying to get transferred
5 minutes into his first show:
Frasier: Abe Lincoln had a brighter future when he picked up his tickets at the box office!
- Frasier remebers his father as a grouchy sourpuss after
he got shot:
Frasier: He made his roommate cry, and he was in a coma!
- After another of Niles' seat dusting displays in the
Frasier: I'd forgotten what a weird little person you are!
- Martin wonders whether Niles out-of-character performance
is because he is drunk:
Niles: Seeing the three of us together in the same room again, who needs alcohol for that?
Martin: I do!
Frasier: I do!
- After hearing the tape of his first show, Frasier gives
Daphne an extra weeks vacation:
Frasier: Being part of a family takes effort, and that effort often means you need a week in Acapulco!
|Frasier Online Episode Review|
A perfect end to the 3rd series that takes us to the day of Frasier's very first radio show broadcast, as well as seeing one of Frasier's first reunions with his brother and father in Seattle - not to mention a brief glimpse of Daphne. I loved the way Niles managed to persuade Frasier that their father had changed, only for him to discover it was a ruse to get Frasier to deal with their father now he was in Seattle, as well as Niles passing Eddie's staring to Frasier. I also really enjoyed seeing Frasier's first (disastrous) radio show, while Frasier's reaction to Roz's attempt to get a transfer during his first show is a classic piece of Frasier. This is a great end to another terrific season of 'Frasier' as it shows us how far everyone one has come in the 3 years we have been watching.
