Divorced psychiatrist Dr. Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer) lives with his disabled father Martin (John Mahoney) and his physiotherapist Daphne (Jane Leeves). He also has to endure Martin's annoying dog Eddie (Moose), who keeps staring at him. A snob who loves sherry and opera, Frasier spends most of his free time with his brother Niles (David Hyde Pierce), who is also a psychiatrist and an even bigger snob. You are in constant competition for a higher reputation and better contacts and regularly throw ideas for joint projects in the sand: the restaurant, a book, your own theater production, a joint practice and social evenings end in chaos. Martin, a former police officer, lives in a completely different world than his subtle, grandiose sons. He has a rustic sense of humor, prefers beer to wine, and sits in his ugly armchair watching sports on television.

Niles: “We were in the area for a pedicure. Of course she was ... "
Martin: "Stop! There is no way to complete this sentence that would make me proud. "

As a radio psychologist, Frasier has his own show on a regional talk station. Roz Doyle (Peri Gilpin) is its producer, a cheerful woman with a lively sex life.

Roz: "I've read that regular sexual activity makes life longer."
Frasier: "In this case you should be around longer than Styrofoam."

Another colleague is the cheeky macho sports presenter Bob "Bulldog" Briscoe (Dan Butler). Niles, who was married to the unbearable Maris (whom one never gets to see) in the first few years, is secretly in love with Daphne, but remains silent about her for years. At the beginning of 2002 they finally become a couple.
