Season 9 of American comedy series Frasier aired on NBC television network. The season premiere was dedicated to Lynn and David Angell.

Summary

Upon returning from Belize, Frasier makes the rash decision to break-up with Claire much to the dismay of the rest of the family. He attempts to reunite with Lana, only for her to get back together with her ex-husband. Afterwards, Frasier takes a drive by himself to reassess his love life and soon finds himself confronted by every woman he’s ever dated, including ex-wives Lilith and Nannette, as well as ex-fiancée Diane Chambers and even his own late mother.  

After dating for about a year, Daphne and Niles decide to live together but the plan is temporarily paused when Simon and Gertrude return to town. After Simon leaves for California, Daphne and Niles are forced to take in Gertrude but when her snide remarks and favoritism of Simon prove to be too much, Daphne puts her foot down and reveals her intent to live with Niles.  

Shortly afterwards, Niles decides to propose to Daphne and plans an elaborate evening in the process. Daphne, however, shows up ill and forces Niles to improvise. Despite this, Niles proposes to her anyway and she accepts.

Niles later surprises Daphne for her birthday, buying a romantic trip to Hawaii for the two of them. However, Daphne soon becomes resigned that her father will not be attending their wedding to give her away. Niles then comes up with a plan to secretly fly to England and track down Daphne’s father and urges Daphne to take the Hawaii trip with her mother instead. Niles manages to track down Daphne’s father at a pub in Manchester, only to be thrown out when he reveals his plan. Ultimately, Niles prevails on the elder Moon to return to Seattle for Daphne’s sake. Daphne is elated to see him at first, but the excitement is short lived when Daphne learns of Niles’s plan. Despite this, Niles is still determined to reconcile Daphne’s parents and takes them to a luxurious restaurant for dinner, but the plan ends in failure after they start arguing. Daphne begins to have reservations about marriage but after a heartfelt conversation with her father, Daphne shows up at Niles’s apartment late in the night and urges for them to get married immediately. Niles accepts the request and the two leave to find a place to wed.

Elsewhere, Roz meets a garbageman named Roger. Despite his occupation, Roz appears to maintain a stable relationship but the two end up splitting due to the chemistry not being right. Roz is left vulnerable once again and ends up sleeping with Frasier. Roz then flees home to Wisconsin, where Frasier soon follows her to rectify the situation. Frasier ends up posing as Roger and the Doyle family end up becoming quite fond him, after being skeptical that Roger did not even exist due to Roz’s sketchy romantic history. It is here that Frasier and Roz reconcile and decide to remain friends.  

In other events, Frasier’s radio show reaches its 2000th episode, Martin accepts a job as a security guard, Frasier accidentally destroys Martin’s chair after yet another argument, Niles, Roz and Daphne attempt to find a date for Frasier, Frederick wins a spelling bee in controversial fashion, Lilith’s half-brother, Blaine, comes to town, and Frasier (and the rest of the family) attend Cliff Clavin’s retirement party.
