  • Though not as good as some finales that I have seen before, I will always hold this episode very close to my heart.

    • Roz: You've always been just like a brother to me. Which is weird, I know, because we slept together and...

    • Ronee: Well, Marty, we'd better get going. I've got a crazy morning. Roz: Me, too. I've got a 7:30 meeting, and then I've got to fire someone. Daphne: Who? Roz: Whoever scheduled the 7:30 meeting.

    • Bebe: Frasier! It's done. When destiny calls, Bebe calls back and screws destiny to the wall.

    • Niles: I'll miss the coffees.

    • (Frasier's final farewell to his listeners on KACL after reading Ulysses.) Frasier: I've been thinking about that poem a lot lately. And I think what it says is that, while it's tempting to play it safe, the more we're willing to risk, the more alive we are. In the end, what we regret most are the chances we never took. And I hope that explains a little this journey on which I'm about to embark. I have loved every minute with my KACL family and all of you. For eleven years you have heard me say, 'I'm listening.' Well, you were listening too. And for that I am eternally grateful. Goodnight, Seattle.

    Trivia (3)

    • While gathered together on Frasier's balcony, Martin, Frasier, and Niles are talking. Frasier mentions "It's just an hour by plane" (between San Francisco and Seattle). Most commercial flights run in the two hour to two and a half hour range between those two cities.

    • In "Don't Go Breaking My Heart (3)" in the flash-forward to Niles' and Daphne's second child's birth, Niles is holding a girl. In this episode, Daphne gave birth to a boy.

    • When the moving man takes Martin's chair away, it squeezes through the front door on its way out; but when the delivery man brought the chair into Frasier's apartment in the pilot, it didn't squeeze through the door, it came in easily. It is a different chair, but they're supposed to be identical.
