Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Jean Smart reprises her Emmy-winning role as Frasier's former high- school crush Lana Gardner (who was given a different character name in her first appearance -- a name that had to be altered for legal reasons). Now a successful and overbearingly cynical real-estate agent, Lana still believes that Frasier worships at her feet and to that end maneuvers him into escorting her to her own "surprise" party. Upon arrival, however, Frasier only has eyes for Lana's friend, Claire (Patricia Clarkson). This episode was originally shown back-to-back with the thematically similar episode "A Passing Fancy."
