Frasier's advice to Marco, a caller who can't commit, saying he was staying
with this woman until someone better came along, is to either commit or
to break it off. Well, he takes the latter option and the woman in question
- Catherine - shows up at the studio to confront him. After an initial
fiery exchange, the pair of them discover they are both lonely and agree
to go out together. Meeting with Niles the next day, he is appalled to
learn he is going out with someone involved with one of his patients.
He also reminds him that if he breaks his code of ethics, he will be physically
sick. Then Marco calls up again and says he has seen Catherine with another
man but Frasier just can't say get back with her as he is enjoying her
company too much. Eventually Catherine and Frasier have a night alone
together and although initially fine, he starts to feel physically sick.
What will Frasier do....?

|Frasier Online Episode Review|
The idea of Frasier breaching his ethics is potentially an interesting one but it isn't particularly well exploited here. Indeed, while the beginning of the show is funny (with the Christmas card photo the best scene in the episode), the rest of the episode isn't that funny with Frasier's 'Eeeeew' noise when he's about to breach his ethics becomes less amusing every time I hear it. Some funny moments along the way but not a great Season 1 episode overall.
