As Daphne (Jane Leeves) grows more frazzled with her strong-willed mother's plans for her impending marriage, Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) gallantly offers to pay for everything and takes over the planning, but he soon overinflates her simple wedding onto a bloated scale rivaling the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. Away from the flurry of activity, a beaming Niles (David Hyde Pierce) presents his statuesque new girlfriend (guest star Loryn Locklin) -- who has a curious habit of keeping tabs of the hours they've spent together.

Frasier's Nuptiuals
18 October 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Frasier accidentally proposes that he pay for Daphne's wedding. He said something while choking on a piece of beef jerky and it was misconstrued. Previous to this, Daphne's mother had been bullying her about her wedding. Once she thinks Frasier is paying for it, she starts on the road to tastelessness, but she is in charge. Frasier puts his horn in and begins to be the mother.
