rasier, his mother - Dr. Hester Crane - and Diane are having dinner together at Melville's. Diane is nervous enough meeting her for the first time because she's his mother and could be her future mother-in-law, but Dr. Crane senior is also an eminent psychiatrist who may analyze every minute detail of Diane's behavior. When they meet, everything is rosy as both women seem to like each other. However, the first moment Hester gets Diane alone, she threatens to kill her if she continues dating Frasier. Diane is shocked and stunned, and Hester continues the threat through what seem to be harmless innuendos to the uninformed. Diane, not knowing if Hester is serious or kidding, decides to take action which places Frasier in a precarious position. Elsewhere in the bar, it's Norm's 36th birthday, and he drops hints to everyone as such. Although his words say that he wants no special treatment, the tone of his words, on which everyone picks up, is that he wants special attention. He does get some attention, but not quite the attention he was anticipating. Norm makes the most of it, much to Sam's chagrin.
