  • Quotes (16)

    • Niles: (thinking he's high) I'm especially looking forward to something called the "munchies" stage. It's where one enjoys bizarre food combinations.... I'm thinking of pairing this Chilean sea bass with an aggressive Zinfandel!

    • Frasier: You’re a good man, Niles. In a way, isn’t that rebelling against rebellion? Niles: (smiles) Nice try. Frasier: All right, look at it this way – you did get our cop father stoned tonight.

    • Martin: Hi, Fras. Frasier: Dad, where are your pants? Martin: In the fridge. (off Frasier’s look) I had a reason. (shows his pad of paper) “Fridge pants.” Frasier: Dad, when you were at the café today, you didn’t eat a brownie that Roz brought for Niles, did you? Martin: Yeah - but I replaced it. Frasier: For God’s sake! That was a pot brownie! You’re stoned off your ass!

    • Martin: For turning you on to the best thing you will ever eat: barbecue pudding chips! Niles: No, thanks. Martin: Oh, they looked at me funny in the store, too, but you taste that and tell me that’s not better than a woman.

    • Martin: Hey, hey, Niles, let me ask you something. Do you ever feel like you'd just like to go straight? Niles: What? Martin: Well, you know, I was walking home, and I kept thinking about all the turns we have to make – right turn, left turn. How much easier it'd be if we just could go straight over the trees, over a building. That's what a giant would do. They should let everybody be a giant for a day. (Niles, thinking it's all just a vision of his own "trip," bursts into giggles, making Martin laugh again) Niles: If you had any idea how strange you seem to me right now. Martin: Why is everybody saying that to me?

    Trivia (1)

    • Wouldn't Niles' brief stint as a nudist count as a rebellion? Not to mention the time he mooned Richard Nixon (mentioned in Season 2's "The Club")?

    Allusions (3)

    • Martin: They should let everybody be a giant for a day. Giant For a Day was the title of an album by 70s British progressive rock band Gentle Giant.

    • Niles' being "high" just because he believes he has eaten a pot brownie, is reminiscent of the Season Four Honeymooners episode, "Head Of The House" in which Ralph and Ed get drunk on grape juice that they believe to be wine. Even that was not the first time the gag was used, however. It originated in the 1930 film Blotto, starring Laurel and Hardy.

    • The title, of course, refers to the Christmas Holidays and the fact that Martin gets "high". The term "High Holidays", however, normally refers to the Jewish High Holy Days, observed during the 10 day period between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
