Niles and Daphne
14 October 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Daphne is so darned cute. And if you put aside his paranoia, so is Niles. This episode puts them together. He wants so much to tell her about his feelings but he is afraid of being devastated. He says he loves another woman and she decides to make a meal for their date. Circumstances lead them to have dinner together. What will happen next?
