Things aren't going well for Frasier. After a disastrously short date with one Doctor Lilith Sternin (Creator/BebeNewrith), the gang decide to set him up with one of Sam's former paramours. To this end, Sam chooses the pleasant, sexy, but dim Candi (Creator/JenniferTilly), and despite some initial reluctance from Frasier, the two hit it off. Possibly too well, as Frasier soon announces his intention to ''marry'' Candi.
