Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Frasier learns to his dismay that a friend and fellow doctor has died of a sudden heart attack. It helps Frasier's peace of mind not at all that he and his late friend were exactly the same age. Hoping to come to grips with his own mortality -- and to avoid the dead man's fate -- Frasier attends his friend's "shiva" (a Jewish wake). This episode originally aired December 2, 1993, replacing a planned rebroadcast of Frasier's pilot episode.
