After a long time, Frasier meets his ex-wife Nanette again. Bored with her job entertaining children as a character named Nanny G, she's built up an enormous amount of passion she desperately wants to share with Frasier. However, she's married to her producer Donald. Not having had sex in six months, it's very hard for Frasier to do the right thing, especially with Nanette doing what she can to get some time alone with him. Written by Marco van Hoof <>

Did You Know?


The scenes during Nanny G's (Laurie Metcalf) show were not shot in front of a studio audience; they were played back on a TV monitor to get a laugh track. The audience laughed so hard that the volume had to be turned down to avoid drowning out the dialogue. See more »


Frasier's just gone into the kitchen to bring everybody some wine. There's a tray with three wine glasses on the stove. Nanny G trails behind, pours herself a glass, and takes a sip. She then proceeds to come on to Frasier. So as not to get caught up in the moment, Frasier carries the tray out to the great room and puts it on the table. There are now four wine glasses, all of which are empty. See more »

Frasier: The Gap, Niles? I didn't know you shopped there.
Niles: I just discovered it! Apparently, there are a number of them.
Frasier: [suspicious] And what did you buy there?
Niles: Oh, well, let's see... some wine glasses, and a bud vase...
Frasier: That's Pottery Barn, you jackass! Give me that!

Nannie G give me a hug.
4 October 2017 | by nilesswenson-12076See all my reviews

'Fraser' was a series that allowed its guess stars to shine brightly and this show has the dazzling Laurie Metcalf. Playing a role from Frasers 'Cheers' past Metcalf is Nannie G his first wife. Playing the same role for 20 years was tough on her (but good for Kelsey Grammar). Nannie G has become part Shari Lewis (who didn't love her), part Marilyn Chambers (the girl next door ever guy wishes he had as a neighbor) and part Norma Desmond (the woman you really need to stay away from). Metcalf shows off some musical theater background and is hilarious through out the whole show.
