I was actually very impressed with this episode.  In it, Ray bumps into a childhood sweetheart (he appears to have a sizable handful of these) who is looking for a missing girl from the Catholic school she works at.  Unable to secure a woman to go in and help, Fraser volunteers to cross dress and  look into it.

At no point is Fraser belittled for doing this.  He volunteers-no arm twisting-and pulls it off pretty well.  Ray (and others) treat him normally.   At one point Ray saves Fraser from a guy who's clearly smitten with him but cutting into their dance and proceeds to dance with the cross dressed Fraser so that they can talk and exchange information.  What few jokes there are are pretty damn respectful.  The show generally doesn't make such a big deal out of it.

In short, this was a lot better than what I'd expect from a show in the mid-90s.  Hell, its better than what I'd expect from a show today.
