Storyline

It Frasier's birthday, and since he's never had a birthday party, the gang at the bar go all out and throw him one. However they make him do all the work for it. Lilith is trying to figure out what to get, and has decided on professional photographs of herself done for him. Hiring Woody's nemesis Henrí as photographer, Lilith initially doesn't quite know what kind of photos to take - composed and formal or seductive - and ends up doing her own kind of seductive. It's definitely not Norm's birthday as Vera has lost her job. What's worse, Rebecca gets Vera a job as a hat check girl at Melville's. As such, Vera has in Norm's opinion invaded his sanctuary. He's a nervous wreck knowing that "she" is up there. A work related incident shows everyone how Norm really feels about his wife, especially when she's not in the vicinity of Cheers.

Vera Arrives
4 September 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

When Vera loses her job, she is hired as a hat check girl at Melvilles. This leads to a dramatic downturn for Norm. He feels he is being watched every minute. It leads to some petty interesting developments. Also, Frasier gets to know the balloon man and Lilith gets her picture taken.
