Plot outline

Frasier is furious when he finds his parking space in Elliott Bay Towers encroached upon by the new SUV belonging to Cam Winston, his neighbour and nemesis. He takes the case to the condo board, and is delighted when his impassioned oration persuades them to rule that Cam must park in the sub-basement. However, Cam lives in the apartment above Frasier's, and he devises a suitable method of revenge, involving the American flag.

Niles asks Daphne to move in with him, and she eagerly accepts, but when she receives a phonecall from her mother announcing an impending visit, she asks that the move be postponed. When Gertrude Moon arrives, Niles discovers why: she still believes Daphne to be a virgin. Rather than bring her husband, Gertrude turns up with Simon, Daphne's brother. For the next few days, both Crane brothers have a terrible time to endure, as Gertrude stays with Niles and Simon with Frasier.

Memorable Quotations

"Cam Winston is fuming at Frasier after the condo board's decision"
Cam: You do your share of polluting with that substitute for masculinity you're driving.
Frasier: If mine's a substitute for masculinity, then what is yours?
Cam: Bigger!

"Daphne has announced that she is moving in with Niles. Frasier and Martin reflect"
Frasier: Do you remember when Daphne first came here? She was so young and naïve, I didn't think she'd last a week. Yet she somehow managed to forge a relationship with a blustery psychiatrist and a crotchety old man.
Martin: And with me, too.
Frasier: "(pause)" Yes, Dad, with you too.
