Favorite episode


To be fair, I haven't seen every episode, but so far my favorite is The Ski Lodge. The "bedrooms" scene is hilarious.

"I'm not gay, Guy!" David Hyde-Pierce was superb in this episode.

"The Two Mrs. Cranes".

Daphne's ex-fiance returns to Seattle to try to woo her back. And they all pretend to be someone else.

The one where he loses one of the tapes from his collection and then goes on a meltdown, but learns to finally get over it.

Just off the top of my head:

"Out with Dad"
"Room full of Heroes"
"Radio Wars" ..."I'm on the radio EVERY DAY!!!"
Frasier Makes Three
Back Talk
Fathers and Sons
Chess Pains

Great choice at the end:

"Chess Pains"

I always loved the episodes featuring Grammer, Pierce and Mahoney.

I was watching that Ski Lodge one on TV a couple of weeks ago.

I crack up just thinking about those musical beds. 😁

The line delivery in that one was perfection. Although I found the premise of "free ski lodge reservations .. FOR SIX PEOPLE" rather un-believable. Still ranks as one of my favorites. I'm surprised the no one has mentioned Roz And The Schnoz. The big nose jokes had me rolling.

I have a different take on favorite episodes. I love Frasier. I think it is well written and well acted. It is in my top ten sitcoms of all time.
As hilarious as some of the episodes are, I have always felt a special warmth for the final episode of Season One - "My Coffee With Niles". It has no over the top comedy. It is a courageous slice-of-life episode.
At the time of its release, the cast and producers of the show were not too certain that the show was going to be picked up for a second season, so they decided to go out quietly, if it came to that.
The episode is basically one long conversation between Niles and Frasier, interrupted by the other cast members at different points. The conversation revolves around the question "Are You Happy?" posed by Niles to Frasier.
I love when a sitcom deals with real life issues on occasion, and to me, this was perfect.
The question never gets answered to Niles' satisfaction as they have to take Martin somewhere.
But, it gets asked once more by the coffee waitress who finally gets Frasier's order correct, and his answer, believe it or not, always makes me a bit misty.
He says "You know, in the greater scheme of things, yes, I would say I am happy!"

That was a fantastic episode. It was the best episode of season 1.

"The Dinner Party" or "My Coffee with Niles".

"Chess Pains" was also great.
