Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Niles (David Hyde Pierce) finally works up the gumption to tell off his wife Maris. This may explain why Niles turns up on the doorstep of his brother Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) and father Martin (John Mahoney), moaning over the fact that Maris hasn't been seen for three days. Frasier advises Niles to beg his wife's forgiveness, but things don't turn out as planned. Just as well: This episode launches a story tangent that will eventually culminate in lasting happiness for at least two of the series' characters (and one of them isn't Maris!).
