After being nominated for a Seabea, an award given at the annual Seattle
radio awards, Roz, who has been waiting a decade for a nomination, and
Frasier decide that to boost their chances they should send the members
of the jury gifts from the Tiffany catalogue. This horrifies Martin, but
they are adamant. The night dawns and they discover that Fletcher Grey,
also nominated, has been nominated for the 11th time and never won. This
starts to send Frasier on a guilt trip as the advance word is that he
and Roz have the award in the bag. The ceremony begins with the announcement
that Fletcher Grey is retiring, making Frasier even more guilty. Finally
then, the announcement of the winner is made.....

|Frasier Online Episode Review|
An episode that brings us the first mention of the SeaBea awards, and a great fun one it is too. I loved the running joke of everyone treating Niles as a waiter at the awards, while the writing is definitely above average, and it was great to see Harriet Sansom Harris as Bebe Glazer again. In short, a rather good episode.

Coming after three of the funniest episodes, this was a real let down.
