  • Quotes (3)

    • Martin: (after spilling the beans to Roz about Niles' long crush on Daphne) C'mon, Niles, you just don't know when to pull the plug! Niles: Well, dad, I certainly won't make that mistake twice!

    • Niles: Obviously you've never let someone you've grown to care deeply about get away. Roz: Well, sure I have. Niles: I'm not talking about when the migrant workers leave at the end of the picking season.

    • Martin: Haven't you ever heard the expression 'Two's company, three's a crowd. Frasier: (sarcastically) No, Dad. I don't think I ever did. How does it go?

    Allusions (3)

    • Martin: And I'll bring a quart of whiskey in case of snakebite. Niles: Dad, Dad there are no snakes up there. Martin: All right, I'll bring a snake. This is a reference to a W.C Fields quote, 'Always carry a flagon of whiskey in case of snakebite and furthermore always carry a small snake'.

    • Title Card: This Could Be The Start Of Something Weird This parodies the song, "This Could be the Start of Something Big", written by Steve Allen. It was used as the theme song for the original The Tonight Show of which he was the host. Of some interest is the fact that this, his most successful composition, he wrote in a dream.

    • The fourth scene of this episode finds Frasier and Martin in a duck blind hunting ducks for Frasier's celebrated duck a l'orange. The title for the scene, appropriately, is "CHICKS AND DUCKS AND GEESE NEEDN'T WORRY". This title is a slight rewording of the line "Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry", found in the song "Surrey With The Fringe On Top" from the musical Oklahoma!.
