Frasier - Season 5, Episode 2 - Rotten Tomatoes

The Gift Horse


Episode Info

The 65th birthday of Martin Crane (John Mahoney) is rapidly approaching. This event also heralds a yearly ritual performed by Martin's sons, Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) and Niles (David Hyde Pierce), to wit: virtually trampling over each another in their efforts to buy ever-increasingly expensive gifts for their dad. Without giving away any more of the plot, it can be said that the episode's biggest laugh is a horse laugh. Marsha Mason makes her first fifth-season appearance as Martin's lady friend Sherry Dempsey.
