One of Martin's friends is organising a bachelor auction, so he wants
Frasier to ask if Bulldog will do it, and then says Frasier can also take
part. The night comes and Roz 'buys' a lineback from the Seattle Seahawks,
Frasier is bought by a model, Kristina, and a meal is arranged for them
together at his apartment. Bulldog on the other hand is bought by a frightened
looking Daphne who opened the bidding at $100 after prompting from Martin
but he received no other bids. The night of Frasier's date arrives but
Kristina has to go and do a last minute photo shoot and leaves Frasier
to look after her teenage daughter, Renata. Daphne, on the other hand,
is having a great time getting drunk in a limo with Bulldog until she
gets him pulled out of it by calling someone who was honking their horn
too loudly an idiot. Back at Frasier's, Renata starts to recant terrible
tales about her mother and when Kristina arrives back, Frasier confronts
her with these stories. Unfortunately, Frasier seems never to have heard
of the word 'lie'....

my bidding and fulfill my every desire. [Offering champagne to Niles]
Niles: I'd love to...
Frasier: That's my new owner - she's a model.

|Frasier Online Episode Review|
The bachelor auction organised by one of Martin's friends gives rise to two very funny scenarios: Frasier having to babysit his 'new owners' daughter, and Daphne getting very drunk in the back of a limo with Bulldog (or Pitbull as she calls him). Each has its's own fair share of good moments - I particularly liked Bulldog being pulled out of the limo almost horizontal, and the sight of Frasier eating raw cookie dough - adding up to what is another enjoyable Season 1 episode.
