They Both Got the Bird
7 October 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is another one of those episodes that I will always remember. Niles gets a new apartment in a snooty building. He decides to throw a dinner party and invites a pretentious group. Frasier is invited as well. The kicker is that because he can't have a dog, Niles gets a cockatoo that talks. The fun starts when the thing attaches itself to Niles' head. One important thing: The bird is a quick study.
