Frasier is still wallowing in Lilith's announcement that she is leaving him for her colleague, Dr. Louis Pascal. What's worse, she has decided to let Frasier have sole custody of Frederick - or in Frasier's mind, abandoning her only child - and live in an underground bubble in the desert, an "eco-pod" with Dr. Pascal. The eco-pod is Dr. Pascal's primary scientific experiment. She wants a trial separation for the time she's gone to live in the eco-pod. She's sees her act as the first and only time she's let loose in her life. Frasier's response is to get on the ledge of a third floor window above the bar threatening to jump. Lilith comes to the scene to try and talk him off the ledge, telling him in all sincerity that she will go back to him if he doesn't kill himself. With that announcement, Frasier, still in love with Lilith, has some words for Dr. Pascal as he commits his final act in the matter. Written by Huggo

Both the double hung windows have something wrong with them The parting rails don't meet on either window. It's obvious in the other window. And can be seen in the one that Fraser closes after deciding not to jump. See more »


Sam Malone: [through a bull horn, talking to Frasier, who is on a third floor window ledge threatening to jump] What about your friends? What about me? I care for you? Hell, I love you, man.
[there is general excitement and approval from the on-looking crowd to Sam's announcement]
Sam Malone: [to the crowd] Yeah, I said it. Look, a guy can love another guy without being the kind of guy who loves other guys.
Sam Malone: [to Frasier] You knew what I was saying, didn't you Frase? You didn't think I meant the other thing, did you Frase?

Painful Turn
11 September 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Cliff, Carla, and Norm seem to have taken a nasty turn. When Frasier is going through a horrible time, they are arbitrary and nasty. In this one he separates from Lilith in great pain and consternation. Lilith is going to live with her lover in a kind of biosphere, leaving her son behind with Frasier.
