When Daphne breaks up with her contractor boyfriend, Joe, after he feels they've been on-again, off-again for too long, Niles thinks this may be his opportunity to declare his feelings for her. But Frasier convinces him that he is being too hasty about this, and urges to to wait one day to let Daphne get over Joe - which he does. This then gives Roz ample time to take Daphne to a singles bar where she meets Rodney, and seems quite taken with him.
Niles is understandably upset that him hesitating led to Daphne finding
another man, so he asks Roz to take him to the same singles bar to meet
a new woman. This comes in the form of Adelle Childs, and Niles seems
very happy with her. Niles and Adelle drop by Frasier's apartment to pick
up some theatre tickets, when Daphne arrives back with Rodney. To everyone's
astonishment, Rodney appears to be Niles' doppelganger in almost every

|Frasier Online Episode Review|
A truly terrific episode that takes the basic plotline of Daphne dating a clone of Niles and creates one of the show's best episodes. There are some great moments all the way through, but the highlights have to be Niles' reaction after he realises who Rodney reminds him of, Niles' attempts to comfort Daphne after the word Joe makes her cry and the scene in the singles bar where Roz attempts to school Niles is picking up a woman. Brilliant from beginning to end, the episode finishes with a desperately moving scene when Daphne says how much she loves Niles as a friend and Niles reponds with "I love you too, Daphne".
