Original UK airdate: 13th July 1994
After Frasier tries to get Niles to take Martin out for the evening because he has a date and Martin agrees, Martin wants Frasier to do the same for him because he also has a date with Elaine Morris who also lives in the same building as Frasier. The morning after the date, Frasier is asking how it went last night - when in walks Elaine! Frasier is thrown by this and really puts his foot in it as almost everything he says becomes an innuendo.
After we discover that Roz is going out with Noel Shempsky, a Star Trek addict, on the show, Frasier is talking to a caller about trying not to pigeonhole people and gives the example of how he thought his father didn't have sex and yet there he was this morning with a lovely young lady, Elaine. This sends Martin into a rage as now Elaine won't talk to him, so Frasier resolves to fix it by inviting Elaine on-air to a romantic dinner with Martin. The time arrives and the doorbell goes - but outside is half the buildings inhabitants dying to find out how it went. Then Elaine arrives in the lift but doesn't want to go in, so Frasier takes Martin and Elaine into the lift so they can have some privacy. How will it all end?

|Frasier Online Episode Review|
An above average episode with some really good lines - the funniest of which are probably when Frasier is putting his foot in it after Martin's date - the double entendres really work well in this scene. David Hyde Pierce's display of physical comedy is wonderful when he hits his head on the hood of the cooker, and Patrick Kerr making his series debut as Noel Shempsky (loved his gift of a spice rack for Roz after their date ) help make this an entertaining and enjoyable episode.
