On February 29th, Frasier advises all of his friends and family to "take a leap" in the spirit of leap year, and do something daring and spontaneous. Martin decides to fly to Montana for a buddy's party, Daphne tries an experimental haircut, Roz sends out an on-air call to a handsome stranger she met on the bus.
