In the series's first two-part episode, Frasier encounters his ideal
woman - sportswear designer Madeline Marshall who appears in Seattle Magazine's
top 100 hottest people, and invites her for dinner at a charming French
restaurant. After 2 fantastic weeks, Frasier admits this may be the woman
he spends the rest of his life with, but after Madeline suggests they
go away together for a short vacation and Frasier suggests Bora-Bora,
he then begins to be worried that things are moving too fast and they
don't know each other well enough. Luckily, his family convince him otherwise
and Frasier and Madeline arrive in the delightful island resort of Bora-Bora.
His ex-wife, however, has the last word....

|Frasier Online Episode Review|
The first of a 2 part episode is a wonderfully well written episode, with some great moments and some nice performances from all involved especially Jo-Beth Williams who plays Madeline Marshall, the love interest for this story. A well above average episode, made even more so by the surprise ending and the words 'To Be Continued'. Oh, and my favourite part had to be Daphne teaching Niles how to blow smoke rings.
