  • Quotes (9)

    • Martin: I've got a bullet in my hip, a girlfriend who's too good for me and will probably realize that any day, a dog who's almost 80 in human years and I'm not far behind him. But I don't complain about it, because I try to think about the good things.

    • Martin: Blah, blah, blah. (to Daphne) You're going to lose your looks? Happens to everyone. (to Frasier) You're afraid you're going to end up alone? You'll still have your family. (to Niles) You're afraid you're going to be a bad father? Join the club. Now just clam it up and go to bed.

    • Frasier: At least you two can face your fears together. Whom do I have to hug away my nighttime terrors, hmm? Daphne: Oh, boo-hoo, send yourself some flowers. Frasier: I beg your pardon? That's a rather flippant comeback, when I express myself...

    • Daphne: Bless him. He's on top of everything around here. Frasier: (contemplating his chess set) You know, I really miss playing with Niles. He's so busy sleeping with other women. Daphne: What did you say? Niles: (re-entering) Have you seen Dad? (Daphne has expanded yet again. She is truly huge, and her face now also shows it) Daphne: Do you still think I'm beautiful?

    • Daphne: You're so different from your brother. Frasier: Really? How so? Daphne: Well, for one thing... you're alive. (They both laugh heartily)

    • This episode, along with "Caught in the Act", won the 2004 Emmy for Outstanding Art Direction for a Multi-Camera Series.

    • Roz has to pretend to be a caller, Susan, who has just moved from Texas. In real life, Peri Gilpin (who plays Roz) is from Texas.

    • Martin performs the jazz standard "On the Sunny Side of the Street," written by Fields/McHugh.

    Allusions (2)

    • Sweeney Tot The title card to Niles' nightmare about being terrible with the baby says 'Sweeney Tot', a reference to Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, a story that has been done in books, movies and on Broadway, of a sinister barber who kills his customers, robs them, and gives the bodies to the baker next door for her meat pies.

    • The episode title is an obvious pun on the term "Freudian Slip", which is not all that accidental here, as Freud believed that slips of the tongue as well as dreams provided insight into a person's true feelings and character.
