    • Marie: Wait a minute. Am I crazy, or are you breaking up with me again? Frasier: Well, they're not completely unrelated. You see, you are a beautiful young woman and I have really enjoyed tackling some of these issues with you. It's just that I don't think that's the basis for a relationship. I think you deserve someone who appreciates all you have to offer. Marie: I don't believe this! Frasier: I just feel more like your therapist than your boyfriend. Marie: But I thought we were having such a good time together. Frasier: I'm afraid our time is up.

    • Marie: I guess I'm going a little nuts since I moved back in with my dad. Thank God I'm getting my own place next week. Frasier: Yes, I suspect that will help a lot. You know, very often, the key to mental health is distancing ourselves from our parents. Martin: (walking in the front door to the apartment while Frasier and Marie are on the couch) I'm home! Oh, hey, sorry to barge in on you kids.

    • Martin: Well, don't worry, I found a girl for you. Now, Duke's daughter Marie just moved back in town.... Frasier: Dad, blind dates remain the refuge of the lovelorn. Martin: You know, if you didn't talk like that you might not have to get set up so much.

    • Frasier: Marie is a stunning woman with a body to die for, and you think all I'm interested in is her mind? How shallow do you think I am?

    • Frasier: I have the name of a specialist. Marie: Call him yourself! (She slams the door on her way out)

    Trivia (1)

    • Here it is established that Frasier and Niles knew Marie as a child; therefore, they would have known Duke as well. But they met Duke for the first time in "Duke's, We Hardly Knew Ye". So how could they have met Duke and Marie when they were children?

    Allusions (1)

    • The title, "First, Do No Harm", is one of the principal precepts all medical students are taught in medical school. It reminds a physician that he or she must consider the possible harm that any intervention might do. Contrary to popular belief, the phrase is not in the Hippocratic Oath. The closest approximation to the phrase that can be found there is "to help, or at least to do no harm".
