Niles' drug-induced comment about the possibility of hospitals having "memories" about their patients prompts everyone to think back on past experiences in that hospital, from Niles' birth to a time that Roz mistook lipstick on Alice's cheek for a rash.

When Martin and Frasier repeatedly bicker about a candy bar stuck in the vending machine, Daphne smashes the machine with a fire extinguisher.

She says that creating another person as wonderful as Frederick would be the best possible legacy they could leave. Frasier agrees to do it, much to the surprise of his family. When Frasier and Lilith argue at the clinic, he begins to fear that their second-born could inherit all of their worst qualities. He believes that they are trying too hard to re-create the past.

She suggests that Niles instead host the party with her. Frasier is hurt to learn that he will be excluded, and says that he will not even attend the party. Daphne believes that she has everything under control, but things quickly begin to unravel. Alice writes her name in crayon on the painting. Daphne remains calm, and gives Roz the name of a man whom Niles uses to restore artwork. However, the game hens catch fire in the meantime. The caterers are too busy to replace them, so Daphne must turn to Frasier for help. He comes over to assist with the food preparation, but must hide in the pantry whenever Niles comes in the kitchen so that his role will remain a secret. Frasier becomes angry when he overhears Niles and others complimenting the food and saying how much better off they are without Frasier's involvement.

He doesn't care for the stuffy guests, and decides to go upstairs and watch pay-per-view boxing with Mrs. Moon.

Martin arrives to bring Frasier some dishes, and winds up having to pose as Shaw for the other guests. Roz asks Daphne to stall the unveiling because the art restorer is painfully slow. Niles insists that dinner must be served immediately. He discovers Frasier, and they begin to argue, leading to more chaos.

Niles is surprised that Frasier would date a P.E. teacher after all of the abuse the brothers endured in gym class as children. When Frasier goes to Chelsea's school to pick her up, he sees her berating one of the students. This causes him to have flashbacks, and he can no longer look at Chelsea without seeing his old gym teacher, Coach Fuller. Frasier tries to convince Chelsea to be more sensitive to the children. Meanwhile, Frasier tries to persuade Roz and Julia to be more civil to one another. They cannot find any common ground, until they realize how much they enjoy insulting each other.

Kenny remains depressed, so Martin lets him tag along to McGinty's. They have a good time drinking and hanging out. Kenny decides to follow Martin's advice and start getting out of the house so that he can take his mind off his problems. He tells Frasier that he doesn't want to come in to see him anymore.

Some Assembly Required

He announces that he will no longer frequent the cafe, and forces a reluctant Niles to leave with him. They scour Seattle in the hopes of finding a new hangout. While at one prospect, they run into Julia. This prompts them to leave in a hurry, but Frasier returns and sees Julia kissing Avery. He agonizes over whether to tell her that Avery is married. Niles returns to Cafe Nervosa and tries to keep it a secret from Frasier. Frasier, frustrated by his inability to find a new coffeehouse, returns to Nervosa and catches Niles dancing along to Ben's performance. Ben's song intro (about doing the right thing) inspires Frasier to confront Avery. Much to his surprise, Julia is hiding in the closet. She had known all along that Avery was married. A disgusted Frasier declares that he will stop trying to be a friend to her. Julia seems saddened when Avery takes a call from his wife. She realizes that Frasier was trying to help her, and shows her appreciation by getting Ben a job at a bank so that he can no longer perform at Nervosa. Meanwhile, a woman observes Daphne's therapy techniques with Martin to help determine whether Daphne can take on other clients. Martin angers Daphne by trying to put on an act to make her look good, rather than letting her work speak for itself.
The Devil and Dr. Phil
Frasier learns that Dr. Phil McGraw is in town for a special. The two are old friends, but Frasier is angry at Phil for supposedly swindling him out of $200 in a poker game. He reluctantly agrees to take the star-struck Roz to the set to see him. Frasier is surprised to find that Bebe Glazer is Dr. Phil's agent, and becomes extremely envious. He wonder if she might be able to elevate him to the same level of stardom as Dr. Phil. Bebe agrees to meet with Frasier to discuss the matter, but also wants to seduce him. Frasier believes he can get Bebe to cave in by just teasing her with the possibility of sex, but Niles warns that the situation seems very dangerous. Frasier winds up running out of Bebe's room in a panic. Bebe shows up at Nervosa and tells Frasier that she wants to leave Dr. Phil for him, as she prefers a challenge. He excitedly agrees to increase her fee, even though she has already managed to cost him his stint at the Spokane station. He has no idea that Bebe never actually worked for Dr. Phil. Phil had only played along with her scheme to win back Frasier so that he could pay off a gambling debt. Meanwhile, Martin's supervisor punishes him for refusing to date his sister by assigning him to the graveyard shift. Martin begins to lose his mind due to the odd hours and lack of human contact.

Leland also shares many habits--and a couple of very rare allergies--with Niles. Roz begins to worry that Leland was the boys' real father.

She suddenly announces that she is turning down the program director job and staying at KACL. At Cafe Nervosa, Julia tries to call Frasier's cell phone while he is in the restroom. Roz sees that she is the caller and complains, and Mrs. Moon answers the phone and pretends that she is some woman fooling around with Frasier. Julia uncovers the truth, and Mrs. Moon immediately gives up Roz. Julia confronts Roz, who orders her to stay away because she doesn't think she's good for Frasier.

The Doctor Is Out
Frasier and Niles suspect that Roz's new boyfriend, Barry, is gay. They see Barry on the street and believe that he has gone into a gay bar.

Frasier, meanwhile, is experiencing doubts about his return to private practice, as he believes he has grown rusty. Frasier spots Ronee Lawrence, the boys' old babysitter. He invites her to come over to the apartment and catch up, as he hopes this will lead to romantic involvement for the pair. However, Martin also finds Ronee attractive, and decides to make his own move on her. When Ronee is called away to work, both men follow her to the club where she performs. Frasier is devastated to find that Ronee likes Martin, and falls into a depression. Frasier and Niles accidentally learn that Martin has been taking Viagra. Martin returns for his pills, but the brothers cannot put them back in time to hide their discovery. Martin is embarrassed, and explains that he could not perform with Ronee because he keeps picturing her as a teenager. Within the span of a few minutes, Frasier is able to diagnose and solve all three of the men's neuroses. He gloats about this and declares himself fit to return to private practice.
Roz tries to convince Frasier to go out with her friend Ann. She feels that Frasier is too particular about who he dates, and adds that there is nothing wrong with continuing to date around until the right person comes along. Frasier is reluctant, but soon grows tired of tagging along with Niles and Daphne and Martin and Ronee or hanging around the apartment alone. He agrees to a date with Ann, which proves to be a disaster. In the middle of the evening, he runs into Kenny, who is trying to persuade his beautiful and interesting cousin, Liz, to take a job in Seattle. Liz is leaving town the next day, so Frasier tries to ditch Ann so that he can spend time with her. Meanwhile, Niles and Daphne suspect that their maid is stealing from them.
Frasier overhears Ronee making a date with another man. He tells Martin, who is furious at him for eavesdropping.

However, Roz inadvertently drives Ronee away, and Frasier somehow finds himself listening to another private conversation as Ronee and Martin sort things out in her car.

Niles wants to tell Daphne anyway, but changes his mind after she freaks out about a phone call from Maris. Niles ends up having to pile lie upon lie to keep the news from Daphne, and even has to throw her a baby shower at the last minute after she suspects that is the reason for his odd behavior and nervousness. Maris's lover, Esteban, shows up at the shower in search of Niles. He mistakenly punches out Frasier as he tries to retaliate for Niles' advice.
