Frasier was promoting a friend for Congress and had him to his home to tape a commercial for him. As they stood on Frasier's balcony overlooking the night lights of Seattle's downtown buildings, the wannabe Congressman, a friend of Frasier's, told him he'd like to confide something...and he did. He told Frasier he had been abducted by aliens.
Of course, Frasier was stunned and then very upset that he had to go inside and tape an ad promoting this person he'd discovered is, well,.... a loon! He did tape the spot, but he was nervous and struggling over the script which was so complimentary to the candidate! Niles watches his brother's weird delivery and suspects something's up and beckons Frasier to the kitchen where he asks "What is WRONG with you?"
Niles convinces Frasier to tell him what's up....Of course, Niles is shocked when Frasier tells him. He can't believe this wannabe Congressman, Phil, is such a loon and poor Frasier has to promote him. BUT, the next sentence is what caught my attention!
Niles says "But, we have to elect him, we can't let the other guy win...what about the environment! what about education! what about the ARTS!?" They shudder at the thought!.........and Niles finally admits "well, heck........it's better to have this LOON elected than the other candidate.....yes, he can be changed! He'll need a lot of therapy!" But, what the heck, they both decide, it must be better to elect the nut!
