Using that indicator, I'd still have to go for Dinner Party! :)

These are two of my favorite episodes ever, and it is almost impossible to choose one over the other.

"My Coffee With Niles" is one of the most unique offerings in the show, and its introspective, realistic tone sets the stage for a plethora of great, intimate, and memorable moments. It's also one that I can personally relate to quite a bit, as my brother and I love to have coffee and just talk philosophically about our lives together. Just thinking about this episode warms my heart.

However, I voted for "Dinner Party" in the end. It is flawless all the way through, whereas I found the pacing and some of the humor in "Coffee" to be a bit awkward. "Dinner Party" is quite possibly the funniest episode of the show for me, a great exploration of the Frasier/Niles dynamic, and there are really no failed gags or scenes. Everything works just perfectly to create 22 minutes of laughs intertwined with definitive statements about the Crane brothers.

I chose MCWN, as I absolutely love it, and don't particuarly like Dinner Party, It justs gets a bit boring for me, where as the coffee shop scene has more to offer in my opinion

I love My Coffee With Niles, it's such a joy to just watch Frasier and Niles sit and talk for 20 minutes. So different and also daring in a way, I guess.

But Dinner Party has really grown on me, in fact now it's one of my favourite episodes ever. Like Authoress said before, everything just works perfectly and there are so many great lines in it.
So I voted for DP.
