  • Frasier: This is Nikos, my father's brother's son. Roz: Well, I would have never pegged you for a Crane. Frasier: Oh, well, he's half Greek. He gets his looks from his mom. Roz: (admiringly) I'll bet he gets looks from lots of women.

  • Martin: Can you imagine what it's like to live in the same city as your brother, and not see him for five years? Frasier: (Looking at Niles) No, but I'd like to give it a try.

  • Nikos: She's a juggler, too. You may have heard of her, Crystal Baker? Frasier: No... I don't get to street theatre as often as I should.

  • Frasier: How did you two meet? Nikos: A few months back, I performed at one of her parents garden parties. It sparked something in her. She asked me for a date right in front of them. That's how she is, she likes to play with her parents heads. Frasier: Yes, well...so did Lizzie Borden.

Trivia (2)

  • It seems odd there would be a phone on Frasier's desk at home only ten feet away from his cordless phone. No doubt it was just put there to speed up the joke when he calls his Aunt and she hangs up on him.

  • Martin's brother is present in this episode, but Martin previously stated he did not have a brother in "Author, Author".
