3 separate stories revolving around the theme of love and set on Valentine's Day itself:
Niles' story: In preparation for a date whom he has invited ovet to Frasier's apartment for dinner, he discovers a crease in his trousers and so out comes the ironing board. What follows is how such a deceptively simple problem coupled with Niles' prissy manner - and his aversion to the sight of blood - can lead to a wrecked apartment and Niles blacked out on the floor.
Frasier's story: Frasier is meeting with Cassandra Stone, the station's new marketing manager, but is unsure as to whether it is a romantic date or just a business meeting. Frasier consistently receives mixed signals but things seem to be turning Frasier's way when she invites him up to her hotel room - but are they?
Martin and Daphne's story: Both without dates
on Valentine's Day, Martin and Daphne decide to have a meal together and
discover what it's like to be dateless.

|Frasier Online Episode Review|
I get more e-mails about this episode than any other, the majority of them wanting to know the name of the episode where Niles sets Frasier's apartment on fire / where Niles faints at the sight of blood etc - and this is it. In the first of 3 vignettes, David Hyde Pierce gets to flex his comedy muscles to the full in a great, near silent piece that starts so innocently with Niles wanting to iron a crease out of his trousers and ends up blacked out on the floor, having set fire to Frasier's couch and set off the fire alarms! The other 2 segments don't come close to being as good as the first but each has it's moments, and I liked Daphne's description of Martin as being like her "pet"!. A memorable episode, to be sure, and a pretty enjoyable one to boot as well.

Not just Niles, May 13, 2013
Reviewer: Sammy J from Melbourne, Australia
"Three Valentines" is an undisputed "Frasier" classic, but there's much more to it than David Hyde Pierce's one-man (and a dog) tour-de-force.
