The Candidate


Episode Info

An upcoming election causes a rift between Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) and Martin (John Mahoney) when Frasier, turned off by the platform of Martin's favorite candidate, decides to support the man's opponent, Phil Patterson (Boyd Gaines). At first, Frasier's choice seems to be a model of logic and sanity, but when Patterson begins prattling on about space aliens and extraterrestrial conspiracies, Frasier realizes that he has cast his lot with a looney tune. Unfortuantely, Frasier finds this out just before he is to film an endorsement for the addlepated Patterson.
