Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Bidding goodbye to Charlotte as she prepares to take a train to an out-of-town convention, Frasier is heartbroken when she reveals her intention to break off their relationship and return to Chicago. Events take an unexpected turn as Charlotte repeatedly misses her train at a succession of stations. Ultimately, the couple ends up in the remote farmhouse of a strange but likeable family who is preparing for their mother's wake -- with "mom" still very much in attendance. And back in Seattle, a case of mistaken identity involving a striptease artist and a physical therapist wreaks havoc on the lives of Niles (David Hyde Pierce), Martin (John Mahoney), and Daphne (Jane Leeves).
