Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Roz arranges a date between Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) and her insurance-agent friend, Ann (Saturday Night Live's Julia Sweeney). It's strictly a temporary measure until a more lasting relationship comes along, Roz assures Frasier: Ann is merely "a placeholder" to "keep your muscles toned." When the date turns out to be a disaster, a desperate Frasier scrambles for a graceful way to ditch Ann and go home alone. Meanwhile, a thief has been stealing things from Niles (David Hyde Pierce) and Daphne (Jane Leeves); and the affection between Martin (John Mahoney) and Ronee (Wendie Malick) grows stronger.
