However, Frasier is astonished to learn that he has been chosen to receive this years Lifetime Achievement Award, and among the congratulations he receives is a basket of flowers from his Harvard psychology professor/mentor, Professor Tewkesbury. Frasier has been meaning to see him for some time after reading in the alumni magazine he is working in Seattle at Washington University. He is somewhat puzzled by the card that comes with the flowers: 'You should be very proud' is one of the lines, and leaves Frasier wondering why he didn't write "I'm very proud of you". Frasier goes down to see Professor Tewkesbury just before the awards ceremony, who reveals that Frasier has been overanalyzing the card because his assistant wrote it. Frasier leaves happy, but the Professor finds him outside his office suffering from what appears to be a mid-life crisis - for which the Professor suggests an unusual course of action: Frasier has to analyze and treat himself.....for defense mechanisms.

Frasier has been meaning to see him for some time after reading in the alumni magazine he is working in Seattle at Washington University. He is somewhat puzzled by the card that comes with the flowers: 'You should be very proud' is one of the lines, and leaves Frasier wondering why he didn't write "I'm very proud of you". Frasier goes down to see Professor Tewkesbury just before the awards ceremony, who reveals that Frasier has been overanalyzing the card because his assistant wrote it. Frasier leaves happy, but the Professor finds him outside his office suffering from what appears to be a mid-life crisis - for which the Professor suggests an unusual course of action: Frasier has to analyze and treat himself.....for defense mechanisms.

The nominations for the SeaBee's have been announced - including one for Gil Chesterton as Restaurant Critic Of The Year - but 'The Dr Frasier Crane Show' doesn't get any. However, Frasier is astonished to learn that he has been chosen to receive this years Lifetime Achievement Award, and among the congratulations he receives is a basket of flowers from his Harvard psychology professor/mentor, Professor Tewkesbury. Frasier has been meaning to see him for some time after reading in the alumni magazine he is working in Seattle at Washington University. He is somewhat puzzled by the card that comes with the flowers: 'You should be very proud' is one of the lines, and leaves Frasier wondering why he didn't write "I'm very proud of you". Frasier goes down to see Professor Tewkesbury just before the awards ceremony, who reveals that Frasier has been overanalyzing the card because his assistant wrote it. Frasier leaves happy, but the Professor finds him outside his office suffering from what appears to be a mid-life crisis - for which the Professor suggests an unusual course of action: Frasier has to analyze and treat himself.....
