After a long time, Frasier meets his ex-wife Nanette again. Bored with her job entertaining children as a character named Nanny G, she's built up an enormous amount of passion she desperately wants to share with Frasier. However, she's married to her producer Donald. Not having had sex in six months, it's very hard for Frasier to do the right thing, especially with Nanette doing what she can to get some time alone with him. Written by Marco van Hoof <>

Frasier's just gone into the kitchen to bring everybody some wine. There's a tray with three wine glasses on the stove. Nanny G trails behind, pours herself a glass, and takes a sip. She then proceeds to come on to Frasier. So as not to get caught up in the moment, Frasier carries the tray out to the great room and puts it on the table. There are now four wine glasses, all of which are empty. See more »


[Frasier's re-married ex-wife comes to town]
Frasier: My problem now is that she's invited me to her dressing room for an... après-show tryst.
Niles: You're not going?
Frasier: Well...
Niles: Frasier!
Frasier: Niles, if you had any idea how much pain she's in. The woman is reaching out to me to rescue her from a loveless marriage, from - from a career she feels trapped in. If I could help her make a new beginning, wouldn't it be heartless of me to deny myself to her?
Niles: ...Did you say something? Your penis was talking so loud I couldn't hear.

I don't know. I was so uncomfortable through this whole thing. Frasier lets his libido reign supreme again, getting himself into another mess. Nanny-G, his ex appeared in an episode of Cheers way back. There is a primal spark. But the plot and the final scene made me a little woozy.
