Niles must have a bypass heart surgery. As the main characters wait for Niles, they experience flashbacks of their visits at the hospital including; 1. Niles is injured from an accident caused by Fraiser as kids and Fraiser bribes Niles not to tell by giving him an Archie comic. 2. Young Fraiser meets Baby Niles for the first time and isn't happy about it. 3. Roz freaking out when she sees red on Alice's face, which is revealed to be lipstick from herself. The nurse assisting her realizes that this is Roz's first time as a mother. This flashback is triggered when Roz and the nurse talk for a moment but have no memory of each other. 4. Marty is given the news that Hester is dying of cancer. 5. In a flash forward, Niles is holding his and Daphne's son, David (who is born in the Series Finale), and introduces him to his new baby sister, who is being held by their mother Daphne.

Miles looks far too good to be a post-CABG patient. Patients that have had by-pass surgery don't go back to a regular hospital room. They go to an ICU. And they are rarely taken off the ventilator and are not extubated until at least a few hours have passed, to allow for the anesthesia to wear off. By-pass patients usually have at least one chest tube, a large bore IV in their shoulder. Many times the patient would be on two or three different medication being controlled by IV pumps. All of this and sometimes more. Niles didn't look like he'd been through anything. See more »


Martin Crane: Remember when you were little and you convinced Niles that we were all figments of his imagination, the whole world was just in his mind?
Dr. Frasier Crane: I told him we disappeared whenever he left the room.
Martin Crane: Yeah, months afterward, he was always darting into rooms to make sure we were all still there. Scared the crap outta me, I was ready to kill you.

How art the mighty fallen
28 March 2016 | by studioATSee all my reviews

'Frasier' suffered a massive dip in quality after its seventh season finale and this for me was the nadir.

The premise is a good one, offering the chance for humour and pathos. But where in the past the show might have dealt with these two elements in a balanced fashion, here it goes right over the edge and opts for schmaltz and sentimentality that is unneeded.

You can't blame the creative team I suppose. After 10 years (and the 'Frasier' character existing for a previous 9 on 'Cheers') it must have been harder to come up with new ideas and to keep giving the audience new ways to invest in the characters, but this is going too far.

The fact that it was dragged out over a two parter again shows a lack of direction and a show that had run out of steam.
