Now that Daphne's father has left Mrs. Moon, she can't bear to return home, so she decides to stay with Niles, while Daphne and Simon are staying at Frasier's. Simon's boorish behavior is too much for Frasier, and he throws him out. With nowhere else to go, Simon abandons Mrs. Moon and goes to California. Daphne tires of her mother's incessant nitpicking and angrily asserts herself to her and announces her decision to live with Niles. Mrs. Moon threatens to return to England, but when she realizes that no one cares, she fakes an injury to get sympathy to stay. Meanwhile, after his attempt to get Cam's flag removed fails, Frasier cuts a deal with him to get his view back.
