Storyline

It's Valentine's Day, and it doesn't seem to be going well for anyone. The Drs. Crane are trying to bring their respective therapy groups - Frasier's a group of shy men, Lilith's a group of shy women - together as part of their therapy.

Rebecca is depressed as after the recent break-up with Robin, she has no man in her life and thus no one to give her a Valentine. Just before midnight, Cliff comes to the rescue and gives Rebecca the Valentine he was going to give to his Ma. However, Cliff wants a little action in return. And Sam, who has had an on-going "only on Valentine's Day" date with Lauren Hudson for the past twenty years, slips and throws out his back just before he is off to see her.

I'm Getting Old
4 September 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Sam falls down the stairs and hurts his back. He meets the same woman every year on Valentine's Day. He is greatly limited in movement and in a ton of pain. Back at Cheers, Frasier and Lilith are having two equal groups of men and women involved in an encounter where they are to show affection to one another (or just get within ten feet). Rebecca and Carla spar as well.
