The eleven-year run of Frasier comes to an eventful climax in this episode, which is related in flashback as Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) recalls recent events to a fellow passenger (unseen for the most part) during a bumpy plane ride. It seems that his agent, Bebe (Harriet Sansom Harris), has found Frasier an enticing new job as a radio therapist on a San Francisco radio station -- and as a bonus, he will host his own nationally syndicated TV talk show. This, of course, will require Frasier to bid farewell to his friends in Seattle -- and to his new love Charlotte, who is still firm in her resolve to return to her hometown of Chicago. Meanwhile, several other momentous events are taking shape. As Niles prepares for the birth of his baby, he must endure the drunken pugnaciousness of his wife Daphne's (Jane Leeves) cockney brothers (guest stars Robbie Coltrane, Richard E. Grant, and Anthony LaPaglia). And thanks to an error made in booking their honeymoon suite, Martin (John Mahoney) and Ronee (Wendie Malick) are forced to move their wedding date up from July to May. The subsequent reception bids fair to be a disaster thanks to beastly hot weather and a veritable sea of cow manure; and when Daphne goes into labor, the only person available to help her is a young and callow veterinarian.
