"Well you don't tell the person being cheated on, you confront the person who's doing the cheating — didn't they teach you anything at Harvard?"
―Roz to Frasier
An Affair To Forget is the 22nd episode of Season 2 on NBC series Frasier.


DYNAMIC DUEL – Frasier counsels a listener, Gretchen (voice of Glenne Headley), when she fears that her fencing instructor husband, Gunnar (guest star Brian Cousins), is having an affair with one of his students. Frasier concludes from the thrust of Gretchen's story that his sister-in-law, Maris, is the swordman's student/girlfriend. Both Martin and Roz advice Frasier to stay out of it, but he's determined to help Niles fight for his marriage.
