    • (Niles and Daphne attend a concert to get on the good side of a nursery painter) Frasier: (talking on his cell phone) Oh good, Niles, you're back. How was the concert? Well, you're the one who wanted that cloud mural. I'm sure Pope Julius had to jump through similar hoops to get Michelangelo to paint his ceiling.

    • Martin: Hey Roz, what are you doing here? Roz: I found Frasier’s money clip. (holds it up) Is he home? Martin: No, uh-huh. (looks around) Where’s Ronee? Roz: Oh, don’t worry. (“points” to the door) “Sheila” showed Ronee the door. Martin: What?! (rushes to the door) What the hell did you do that for?! Roz: (after him) Hey, I have no control over what Sheila does.

    • Frasier: Dad... just give her a call and tell her you want to talk to her. (Martin is silent... then lets out a quiet grunt) Frasier: Was that a “leave me alone” grunt, or a “you’ve bested me again, son, with your unassailable logic” grunt? (Again, Martin is silent, and again lets out a little grunt) Frasier: I thought so.

    • Martin: Sheila! Where have you been? (He embraces her, as she looks bewildered) Martin: This is my date, Sheila. (to Roz) Got stuck at work, huh? (he says gently nodding his head) Roz: Uh, yeah? Martin: Sheila’s a model. She does all those big auto and RV shows. (to Roz) Point to something. (Roz opens her hand and motions outward)

    • Martin: Hey, Niles. Ready to bob-bob-she-bob? Niles: (rises in horror) Oh, dear God. Is it a dance? Am I going to have to move about? Martin: No, you don’t have to, but you’re going to want to. Niles: (one last try) Daphne? Daphne: I’m pregnant. Niles: What does that have to do with it? Daphne: It’s my blanket excuse until the baby is born. After that, it’ll be, “I can’t leave the baby.” Get used to it.

    Notes (1)

    • Originally scheduled to air October 21, 2003.

    Trivia (2)

    • In the opening scene of this episode, the piano is just above the living room area instead of just above the dining room area where it has been since the show premiered. While the piano is clearly on wheels, it seems unlikely that they'd move it out to play.

    • Martin should know that Roz is Frasier's producer, not his "secretary."

    Allusions (2)

    • Title Card: The First Of Sheila This alludes to the 1973 movie The Last of Sheila starring Richard Benjamin and Dyan Cannon.

    • Ronee: (singing a response to Frasier's bad mood) Got me some ham and some cakes on the griddle... thank God I'm a grumpy boy! This parodies the John Denver song, "Thank God I'm a Country Boy".
