  • Martin: Well, it's a long time since I've been dating. Have things changed much in the last forty years? Frasier: Well, the wardrobe is a little different, but your ultimate goal is still the same.

  • Martin: Daphne, have I got this tie on right? Daphne: It just needs a minor adjustment. What's all this hair on it? Martin: The only way I can get the knot right is if I tie it on Eddie first.

  • Daphne: I got pizza rolls in the back of the freezer but the expiration date was yesterday. Are we game?

  • Martin: Okay, when I'm ready. Thanks, Frasier. You know, I guess I don't say it often enough but you're a good kid. Frasier: Well, thanks Dad. You know, there's something I don't say often enough... Martin: (correcting)There's nothing you don't say often enough.

  • Frasier: (greets her) Well, of course. Aunt Patrice, yes. I don't recall really when we met but I believe there was a lot of laughing and dancing. Patrice: My husband's funeral. Frasier: Yes...well, of course, the laughter was to hide our tears.

  • Niles: Oh, who knows why anybody does anything? Frasier: Remind me again what you do for a living? You see the thing is, it was just one phone call. How can anyone make a sound judgment about another person on the basis of one phone call? Niles: Remind me again what it is you do for a living? Frasier: Well anyway, I suppose it could be any number of reasons. Fear of rejection, shyness...

  • Martin: (whispers) Tell her I'm not home. Frasier: Dad, she knows you're home...she's looking at you through the telescope.

  • Frasier: I'm going to help along your little romance and possibly save a small forest. I'm giving her our telephone number. Martin: (in terror) No, no, no, no, no, don't do that! Frasier: Why? Martin: Well, she'll think I'm being too forward. Frasier: For God's sake, Dad, you met peeping into her apartment.

Trivia (2)

  • Frasier has bought a telescope as a surprise gift for his father. In the series pilot, "The Good Son", there is a rather sophisticated telescope on a tripod visible on the balcony of Frasier's apartment (not the brass one introduced here and not present in episodes 2, 3 or 4).

  • Niles claims that Aunt Patrice and Maris love to trot out this so-called "G-Speak" at parties, and yet every time Aunt Patrice visits, Maris is invariably bed-ridden. It seems inplausible that Maris would cook up a game with a person for whom she has so evident a dislike-and if Maris inevitably takes ill when her aunt visits, when would they have a chance to attend a party together? Patrice herself said that to that day, she had no idea how tall Maris was.
