  • Frasier and Lilith are ensconced in trying to settle Frasier's will, and what to do in the event of his passing. While Lilith wants to get it done and put out of the way, Frasier does not want to speculate about his eventual passing.

    Meanwhile, Paul is upset when it seems that Norm and Cliff don't include him on any of their little adventures.Eventually, Cliff brings a pizza and some cake for Paul, but he and Norm end up eating the items before Paul gets to the bar. They buy him a free beer, but Paul is pretty sure that

    Rebecca grows upset when it seems that she and Sam are unable to conceive. She gives Sam a card to go to a fertility clinic for a check-up, but Sam sees this as a major blow to his manhood, and refuses. He ends up changing his mind when Carla says he's too scared to go.

    He manages to make it to the clinic, where he attempts to bribe the receptionist to writing out that he has a healthy sperm count.

    Later on that evening, Frasier finishes signing out his will, bringing it with him in a sealed manila envelope. He then spends the remainder of the evening drinking at Cheers. As he begins to have a few too many, he begins to criticize Carla's waitressing services, before she calls him a cab.

    Shortly afterwards, Sam returns to the bar with the test results from the clinic in a sealed manila envelope. However, he's afraid to read what's inside.

    As he wanders around the bar wondering about the results, he turns to see Carla holding up a manila envelope, on fire. Sam is at first shocked, but Carla claims that this will help take his mind off the results.

    Just then, Frasier's cab arrives, and Carla calls him out of the restroom to go. He picks up a manila envelope near his bar stool, and then leaves.

    The episode then cuts to the future, where we see an aged Lilith, and an older man who is supposed to be Frederick Crane, sitting down as Frasier's will is unsealed and read.

    However, it soon turns out that all those years ago, Carla switched Frasier and Sam's envelopes, as the envelope here contains clarification that Sam's sperm count is normal.

    "That damn bar," mutters Lilith.
