Review by:
Alison Graham

Terminator star Linda Hamilton guests as a cheerful cellist, a woman Frasier decides to meet at the airport after an answering machine mix up. He’s hoping she’s a romantic prospect because he’s feeling a bit lonely.

It’s a sweet episode, the season-four finale, complete with a hilarious, excruciating and sad little scene where Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) is eating alone in a restaurant packed with loving couples and is the object of every pitying eye. As this terrible evening wears on, Frasier becomes more miserable and desperate, which leads him to his fateful meeting and a flight to Acapulco.
