Plot outline

Frasier's show has been picked up by a station in Spokane, and he excitedly announces that he and Roz have been invited there by the station to do their first show from Spokane. Once off air, he also learns from Roz that she and Roger have broken up. Frasier wants to help, but Roz says she is OK about it. Once in Spokane, Frasier appears at a press conference to introduce himself and Roz to the local media. Here, Frasier learns that he is replacing a local institution, Neil Sullivan (known as Sully locally), and he gets the impression that the locals are not that impressed with him. When Sully makes an impromptu appearance he receives a hero's welcome from the local press.

Things do not go too smoothly during Frasier's show either, every caller wants him to go back to Seattle, with some deciding to boycott the station until Sully comes back on the air. Frasier is determined to show the local audience his brand of therapy can help, and so convinces Roz to call in with a problem. This soon develops into helping Roz get over Roger, and seems to impress the Spokane audience. Meanwhile, Martin, Niles and Daphne work together to try and build a TV table, at least until Daphne's bossiness takes over.
