Plot outline

Frasier has to choose whether to return to his heartless former agent, Bebe Glazer, or stick with his current representative, well-meaning but non-confrontational Ben. Maris' insistence that Niles fire their latest couples' therapist, and Niles' refusal to do so, puts their weekly conjugal visits on hiatus. Ben brings Frasier the wrong sort of publicity and Niles has trouble controlling his pent-up urges, but Frasier insists that both he and Niles do the ethical thing: Frasier must stay with his ethical agent, and Niles must not fire a perfectly good counsellor just to have sex.

Memorable Quotations

"Frasier has received the information that the KACL station manager will use a “hired gun” to negotiate his contract"
Niles: I’m assuming they call him "The Hammer" because he’s tough.
Frasier: No, Niles; because he loves the lyrics of Oscar Hammerstein(!)

"Bebe confronts Frasier and presents him with a contract, promising that if he employs her again she will cut him a very good deal"
Frasier: Isn't there a zebra carcass somewhere you should be hovering over?

"Bebe confronts Frasier and presents him with a contract, promising that if he employs her again she will cut him a very good deal"
Bebe: Look at you! Your face is riddled with bird bites, your name's a punch-line, your career is 5 minutes from over and he's only been your agent for three days!! Send him in against the Hammer and you'll be doing fog reports from a lighthouse in Puget Sound(!)
