  • One of the top ten episodes from a great season 1. It's a classic, because it is the first of many episodes of Frasier with a Jewish theme.

    • Niles: I came as soon as I could. I was in the middle of my workout. I can always pump iron later. (smiles at Daphne, who excuses herself to make snacks) Frasier: Pump iron. Niles, you don't even pump your own gas.

    • Daphne: I suppose I like my gents more on the manly side. Was that a little swan you made? Niles: No, it was a B-52.

    • Frasier: (talking about death) I'd miss so much. I'd never get to see my son hit his first home run. That'd be a terrible thing for a father to miss... Martin: Tell me about it!

    • Frasier: Why is it that everytime we have a serious discussion we end up talking about your sex life? Roz: Because I have one.

    • Martin: I remember when I took you for your first tetanus shot, you were about five or six. Frasier: Oh boy, was I scared. I remember you holding my hand. Martin: Yeah. Bent over that table, dropped your little drawers. When the nurse gave you the shot, you took your mind off it by reciting the names of all of Puccini's operas. Right then I knew you'd never be a cop.
