Jerry, George, and Kramer are sitting at their usual table. Elaine rushes in, looking excited.

ELAINE: Hey, guys! Guess who's back in town?


ELAINE: Frasier Crane!

KRAMER: Frasier Crane? The psychiatrist?

ELAINE: Yes, we've been seeing each other.

GEORGE: (shocked) You're dating Frasier Crane?

ELAINE: (smiling) Yeah, it's been really great.

JERRY: (jokingly) So, how's he doing on the couch?

ELAINE: (rolling her eyes) Very funny, Jerry.

KRAMER: (excitedly) We gotta meet this guy! I hear he's a genius.

JERRY: (sarcastically) Oh, I can't wait to feel stupid around him.

ELAINE: (defending Frasier) He's not like that. He's very down to earth.

The group exits Monk's and heads to Elaine's apartment.


Frasier is sitting on the couch, sipping coffee. He stands up as the group enters.

FRASIER: Hello, everyone. It's nice to meet you all.

JERRY: (shaking Frasier's hand) Likewise.

KRAMER: (in awe) I can't believe we're meeting the Frasier Crane.

GEORGE: (skeptical) So, you're a psychiatrist, huh?

FRASIER: Yes, that's correct.

GEORGE: (awkwardly) I could use some advice, actually. My relationship with my father is pretty strained.

FRASIER: (nodding) I'd be happy to help. What seems to be the issue?

GEORGE: (hesitant) Well, he's kind of a difficult person to be around.

FRASIER: (encouragingly) Go on.

GEORGE: (sighing) He's always criticizing me, and he's never satisfied with anything I do.

FRASIER: (nodding) That can be very frustrating. Have you tried talking to him about how his behavior affects you?

GEORGE: (shrugging) I don't know. I guess I'm just afraid of making things worse.

FRASIER: (smiling) Well, sometimes confronting a problem head-on can be the best way to resolve it.

GEORGE: (nodding) Yeah, I guess you're right.

JERRY: (jokingly) Hey, maybe you could give us all some therapy. We could use it.

FRASIER: (laughing) I'm afraid my schedule is already quite full, Jerry.

ELAINE: (smiling) Well, we'll just have to settle for hanging out instead.

The group laughs and settles in for a casual evening together.




George is sitting in the living room with his father, Frank. Frank is watching TV and George is nervously fidgeting with his hands.

GEORGE: (clears throat) Dad, can we talk?

FRANK: (grunting) What is it?

GEORGE: (taking a deep breath) I just wanted to tell you that it bothers me when you criticize me all the time.

FRANK: (rolling his eyes) What are you talking about? I don't criticize you all the time.

GEORGE: (getting defensive) Yes, you do. Every time we talk, you find something wrong with what I'm doing.

FRANK: (getting angry) You're damn right I do. You're lazy, you're ungrateful, and you're never satisfied with anything.

GEORGE: (raising his voice) That's not true! I work hard and I try to do my best.

FRANK: (yelling) Oh, please! You're a failure, George. A complete failure.

George's temper flares, and he jumps to his feet.

GEORGE: (shouting) That's it, I'm out of here!

He storms out of the house, slamming the door behind him.



Jerry, Elaine, and Kramer are sitting at the table, sipping coffee. George rushes in, looking flustered.

JERRY: (concerned) George, what's wrong?

GEORGE: (panting) I just had the worst conversation with my dad. I tried to apply Frasier's advice, but it just turned into a shouting match.

ELAINE: (surprised) What advice?

GEORGE: (exasperated) About confronting problems head-on. But it just made things worse.

KRAMER: (sympathetically) Hey, sometimes things have to get worse before they get better.

GEORGE: (skeptical) I don't know, Kramer. I think things might be beyond repair with my dad.

JERRY: (encouragingly) Hey, don't give up yet. Maybe you just need to approach it from a different angle.

GEORGE: (nodding) Yeah, maybe you're right.

The group sits in silence for a moment, thinking.

ELAINE: (brightening) Hey, why don't you try doing something nice for your dad? Maybe that will help break the tension.

GEORGE: (smiling) That's not a bad idea. Maybe I could take him to a ballgame or something.

JERRY: (jokingly) Just make sure it's not the Yankees. We don't want to make things worse.

The group laughs, and George seems to relax a little.

GEORGE: (smiling) Thanks, guys. I really appreciate your help.

The group raises their coffee cups in a toast.
