    • Julia: Nice towels, Frasier, you'd think a couple of old ladies lived here. Frasier: Get out. Julia: Excuse me? Frasier: I said get out! Julia: I'm sorry, have you just lost your mind? Frasier: No, that happened earlier when we slept together! Julia: Are you breaking up with me? Frasier: You're damn right I am! Julia: I want my purse! Frasier: And I, my hand towel!! (They exchange. Julia begins to exit) Julia: I can't believe this. You're actually kicking me out? Frasier: Do you want me to draw you a picture?! Julia: We'd be here all night! Frasier: Get out!

    • Julia: Oh, my God, that is the worst drawing I've ever seen. I mean, even these cheaters (indicating Niles and Daphne) wouldn't have gotten that one. Daphne: Cheaters? Julia: I saw you guys mouthing at each other. And I think Father Time here cut us off a little early, too. Here, give me that pen, I'll show you how it's done. Sit down. Oh, my God, I mean, this painting is just...

    • Frasier: You should hear what she says about my show. Julia: I just have to remind Mr. Pompous here that what we do on the radio is entertainment. Frasier: Well... Niles: Yes, Frasier and I have had many a chat about the difference between what he does and genuine psychiatry. Julia: Yeah, big difference. I mean, at least his advice is free, not like those quacks who charge 200 bucks an hour to whine about their childhoods. I mean, what a racket that is!

    • Julia: Well, I'm not sure I'd call that festive. Frasier: Well, then you'd be wrong, as it is from the Salzburg Music Festival. Julia: How about something a little more contemporary. Frasier: Oh, all right. I believe I have Michael Nyman's The Contemporary Trumpet. Julia: What are you, a hundred? (Throughout the scene, she continues to smile and laugh through her insensitive comments and barbs) Frasier: All right, nothing then, my little wasp. (He chuckles, still in a good mood. Niles enters with drinks) Oh, thank you, Niles. Thank you very much.

    • Julia: Ten years! I-if I still needed a cane after that long, I'd dump my physical therapist and find one who knows what they're doing. Daphne: (entering from the kitchen, setting the table. Coldly) Hello. Martin: Well, actually, this is her. She's also my daughter-in-law. Daphne, this is Julia. Julia: Sorry about that. (laughs) Daphne: That's all right. And just so you know, he wouldn't need the cane so much if he'd stretch more. Julia: I'd have thought that part of your job was making sure he stretched. Daphne: Yes, but, I can't be here day and night. Julia: I'm sorry, for some reason I thought you lived here. Daphne: (forcing a smile) Well, I don't.

    Trivia (2)

    • The first line in this episode is Daphne saying, "It's official. Doctor Lee says we're pregnant". It's amusing to hear that there was some doubt about it with Jane Leeves' abdomen sticking out as it is. She was clearly pregnant herself at the time with her son, Finn William Leeves Coben, who was born December 19th, 2003, less than three months after this episode aired.

    • In this episode, Frasier tells Julia that Florence, Italy is his favorite city. But in "It's Hard to Say Goodbye If You Won't Leave", he tells Kate Costas that Paris, France is his favorite city.

    Allusions (1)

    • Title: A Man, a Plan, and a Gal: Julia
      The episode title was suggested by the palindrome "A man, a plan, a canal: Panama!" This palindrome (a word or phrase that is spelled the same forward or backward) dates from the early 20th century when the Panama Canal was being built.
