Dinner at Eight


Episode Info

This episode of Frasier marks the first meeting between Niles (David Hyde Pierce) and Daphne (Jane Leeves) -- though it could hardly be called an historic moment. As for the plot proper, Niles and his brother, Frasier (Kelsey Grammer), are still bending over backward trying to please their cranky father, Martin (John Mahoney), with an astonishing lack of success. In their latest effort, the erudite brothers agree to accompany Martin to his favorite restaurant, The Rustic Timber Mill, a joint in which neither Frasier nor Niles would be caught dead under any other circumstances.
