Quotes (5)

  • Frasier: Say, you didn't watch the parade this evening, did you? Bob: Well, I turned it off when the smelling salts started making Santa nauseous. You know, Frasier, I got off to a rather rough start at this parade myself.

  • Frasier: No, that's a terrible idea. Your elves are probably suffering from seasonal-affective disorder. Now, loading them up with sweets will only aggravate the problem! Santa: Kids love candy! (the crowd cheers) Frasier: Elves are not kids, they're tiny men! Mary: Well, if you want my opinion... Frasier: No, thank you, Mary. We've been listening to your opinions all night, and frankly there isn't enough room left in our heads for another one, now if you would just get back in... (Frasier puts his hands out and accidentally punches Santa on the nose with his microphone)

  • Frasier: (smiling) This might be a good time for a break. We have an exciting surprise coming up - a special mystery guest. Mary: (suddenly, ad-libbed) It's Santa! (Frasier carries on smiling, against all odds) Frasier: Thank you, Mary!

  • Frasier: Oh, Lord, that'll be my hobo casserole! Niles: Hobo! That's the smell!

  • Frasier: Hey, Kelly. Have you ever seen eighty beavers march in perfect rhythm? Kelly: Oh, Frasier, everyone knows beavers can't march. Frasier: Oh, they can, when they're the marching beavers of the Riverside High School Band! Kelly: Hey, you tricked me. Frasier: Sorry, Kelly, but how about those incredible formations. They're so precise. Kelly: Well, that doesn't surprise me, Fras, after all, the beaver is nature's first ENGINE-er! (laughs)
