Frasier is nervous about a speech he has to make at a seminar. Carla suggests a device she uses: picture everyone naked, but wearing black socks. She says that you just can't help but laugh at the picture. It works. As Frasier practices it with people in general, he gets more and more and more relaxed. Perhaps he gets a little too relaxed as he forgets something important. Meanwhile, Rebecca is asked by yet another Vice-President at the company to do a menial task. Mr. Sheridan needs someone to house-sit and look after his dog Buster while he's away on a trip. As usual, Rebecca agrees, although this time she does so reluctantly in part because looking after such a large house by herself spooks her out a bit. Sam sees this as the perfect opportunity to get her into bed by visiting her at the house and playing on her insecurities. However as Sam enters the house, Buster finds an open door to leave. So Rebecca, Sam and the rest of the gang at the bar are placed on Buster search detail. ... Written by Huggo

It's a Dog's Life
28 August 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Another executive calls on Rebecca for a favor. She is to housesit for him and take care of his doberman (I think it's a doberman). Anyway, he lives out in the woods in a mansion and so Sam decides Rebecca needs company. He goes out there and scares her half to death. In the process, the dog escapes. This brings all the bar regulars out there to try to catch him. It's quite frantic.
