Dr. Frasier Crane: First, you get me to get this one million dollar life insurance policy, now you're badgering me about the will. Lilith, I'm practically afraid to start my car in the morning.
Dr. Lilith Sternin-Crane: Frasier, I'm a scientist. If I wanted to kill you, I could certainly think of more clever ways to do it than that. Something subtle, something that couldn't be traced back to me.
Dr. Lilith Sternin-Crane: [slyly] Drink your drink, darling.
[Frasier has a scared look on his face]
Dr. Lilith Sternin-Crane: You are so cute when you fear for your life.

Count, Count, Count, the Boys Are Marching
9 September 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There are three little plot lines. One involves the fertility of the two trying to produce a baby. Second, we have Frasier being pushed by Lilith to get a will, even though the thought of death frightens him. Then we have Norm and Cliff selfishly treating their friend badly because of their own base wants and needs. The episode is pretty funny. I especially like the ending.
