Frasier is beginning to show some of the signs of middle age - he's forgetting
people's names, can't remember how to finish a tune on the piano he knows
backwards - but doesn't want to admit it until Martin convinces him that
the best thing to do is not to fight it. However on a trip to a department
store with Martin and Daphne, an attractive young sales assistant called
Carrie starts giving Frasier a lot of attention which makes Frasier believe
she is giving him the come-on, but Martin just thinks she flatters all
her customers that way. Carrie then turns up at KACL the next day with
Frasier's trousers and asks him out on a date but he turns her down -
much to Roz and Bulldog's amazement. He then has to decide - if he does
go out with her, is it to try and make him feel young again or based on
the prospect that something lasting may come out of it. He then goes down
to the department store to find Carrie and announce his decision........

|Frasier Online Episode Review|
A rather uninteresting affair this time around - I found the whole predicament rather dull. Obviously being 'Frasier', there are some good moments - Martin taking Frasier shopping for pants with a stretchable waistline was quite amusing - but there aren't enough of them, and with no other subplot to distract our attention, this ends up being not a particularly great episode.

Reviewer: Lydia from London, England
This episode is extremely disappointing. It has good grounds for being a decent episode, with Frasier being asked out by a much younger woman, but it never really gets going. Very few laughs and not enjoyable.
