Frasier and Lilith announce that they are moving in together and as the instigators of the relationship, they invite Sam and Diane over as their first dinner guests. Just prior to Sam and Diane's arrival, the new couple analyze their relationship and who manipulated who into doing what, which starts an evening long argument. As Sam and Diane arrive, the evening goes on a roller coaster of emotions, the major downturn initiated by a secret revealed by Diane. Thus Diane becomes the third member embroiled in the emotional battle for the evening. The dip and the apartment main floor powder room play key roles in how those emotions manifest themselves. Frasier believes that he has the ultimate answer to the evening's problems.
