    • Niles: Well done, Frasier! Frasier: Oh, Niles, I can't wait to see the expression on the headmaster's face when he sees this check for... (he looks at it) ...fifty dollars. Niles: What?! Frasier: Uh, well, I, I guess it's fifty dollars more than we had before. (Martin comes back in) Martin: Well, let's go fellas, grab my coat, will ya? Frasier: Right, Dad. (Frasier grabs the coat. But, when he turns around, the coat knocks a vase off a table. He and Niles look at it, panicked. Then Frasier puts the check down on the table and they slink out quickly)

    • Frasier: My, Penelope certainly has good taste. Niles: Well of course, she likes Dad, doesn't she? Martin: Oh, can it. I'm still mad at you guys for inviting yourselves. Now, remember, be careful what you say in front of Penelope. I've got a delicate balancing act going here, so don't mess it up. (Penelope walks up from behind) Penelope: Don't mess what up? Martin: Oh, ah, uh, your lovely living room, my boys really like to rough-house. (Frasier and Niles playfully shove at each other, Martin kisses Penelope hello)

    • Martin: Well, sure, I had to. You don't think I gave them both my home number, do you? Come on, Fras, that's amateur hour. See, I programmed the phone for different rings depending on who's calling, so that way I don't get caught off guard. Now, this is "William Tell", rhymes with "Estelle."

    • Niles: Dad is not going to let us ask his girlfriend for money. Frasier: I didn't say "honest," I said "direct." Try to keep up, for God's sake!

    • Waiter: I'm sorry, ma'am, we're out of lemon bars. Roz: Well, make some more. And give me a dirty pan. I need to put it in my sink. Waiter: I'm sorry, our baker doesn't come in 'til tomorrow. I can give you the recipe. Roz: What am I supposed to do with that? Waiter: Bake? Roz: Is that supposed to be funny?

    Notes (2)

    • Jane Leeves does not appear in this episode.

    • In this episode, Roz asks Niles how Daphne is doing at the weight loss spa, and Niles says that Daphne has lost "9 pounds, 12 ounces." This is referring to the weight of the baby that Jane Leeves had just had in real life.

    Trivia (1)

    • Goof: In one scene one of the servers at Frasier and Niles's wine party trips and sprains her ankle, and is helped to a seat to sit down. However, in the next scene of Frasier and Niles talking in the kitchen, she can clearly be seen in the background serving people.
