Frasier Loves Roz
Written by: Suzanne Martin
Directed by: Philip Charles Mackenzie
Original US airdate: 7th May 1996
Original UK airdate: 6th December 1996
Roz is tired of being a bridesmaid, and Frasier encourages her to consider
a change in her dating patterns - perhaps she could develop a relationship
with someone of a bit more substance. She follows his advice, but Frasier
learns from Niles - confidentially - that Roz's new beau is a predatory
heartbreaker. While Frasier tries to steer Roz away from this guy, Daphne
says that perhaps Frasier is interested in her - Roz doesn't believe it,
but soon, everything Frasier says seems to confirm this. Eventually, Frasier
and Niles try to find a way of letting Roz know he is a heartbreaker but
not breaking the confidentiality of patient's clause. They rationalise
that if Roz were declared mentally incompetent, then it would be alright.
So Frasier heads over to Roz's to warn her...

- A caller phones in, saying he has sex up to 3 times a day:
Tom: Is that abnormal?
Frasier: No, no... it's not fair, but it's not abnormal.
- Roz asks Frasier for advice:
Frasier: Do you want me to answer as a friend or a therapist?
Roz: A friend.
Frasier: See a therapist.
- As Frasier and Niles learn about Roz's now boyfriend:
Frasier: That is the last man Roz should be with.
Niles: Yes, well, knowing Roz, he probably won't be.

Frasier: Ben, Ben, Ben! Can't you stop talking about him and pay attention to me for a change!
- In the radio studio:
Frasier: Me and my stupid advice [notices the on-air light] ... will be with you for the next 3 hours.
- The sight of Roz with a hairbrush in her hair
- After Ben has dumped Roz:
Frasier: I've gotta run.
Roz: Yeah, me saying 'I love you' seems to have that effect on people.

|Frasier Online Episode Review|
A nice episode with some funny parts, most notably when Frasier is trying to warn Roz off Ben and at the same time is convincing Roz that he is in love with her, but I felt that it was never as funny as it could be - the story didn't seem well developed enough, a problem not helped by a script that lacks enough genuinely funny lines. Still, an enjoyable episode nonetheless, with a great tag scene over the end credits.
