INT. MONK'S CAFE - DAY

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

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

JERRY: Who?

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.

INT. ELAINE'S APARTMENT - DAY

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.

FADE TO BLACK.

INT. GEORGE'S PARENTS' HOUSE - DAY

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.

INT. MONK'S CAFE - DAY

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.

FADE TO BLACK.
