Main cast and characters
Martin discovers an envelope in the pocket of one of his jackets, which contains a cheque for Frasier’s home insurance
renewal and should have been posted months previously. Realising this, Frasier makes a hasty call to the company, and is horrified at the amount he would have to pay now to renew. Roz advises him to consult Ann Hodges, whom Frasier remembers from their disastrous date (The Placeholder
). He reluctantly agrees, and invites her round to survey his home, where unfortunately she slips on a mayonnaise
spillage in the kitchen and breaks her leg. Anxious to avoid a lawsuit
when he has no insurance, Frasier decides to invite Ann to stay at his place for a few days while she recovers – a decision he soon regrets.
Meanwhile, Maris has been released on bail, and is being kept under house arrest with an electronic tracking device on her wrist. Niles learns that she plans on auctioning some possessions to help pay legal costs. She offers him the chance to look over them first, so he seizes the opportunity to reclaim a “quasi-erotic” portrait of himself as Pan. Little does he realise that he is about to act as a decoy in her escape plan.

Roz's hair is long in this episode, while it was short in the previous episode Frasier-Lite
. This suggests that the episodes were not screened in production order.
