    • Bebe: I just need to find a way to throw a scare into them. Niles: Have you tried turning into a bat? Bebe: I would, love, but most grown men don't share your fear of tiny creatures!

    • (Bebe pulls out a cigarette) Bebe: (to Frasier) May I? Frasier: (motions to the balcony) On the balcony, if you don't mind. Bebe: Mind? I don't want a single puff tearing up the baby blues of TV's newest sensation. By this time next week... Niles: You heard him. If you're going to blow smoke, do it on the balcony.

    • (Frasier tells Daphne that Bebe is coming over) Daphne: I hope she’s not staying for lunch. I’m afraid we’re fresh out of live mice.

    • (Niles is berating Frasier for agreeing to appear on a mindless morning talk show) Niles: You have been an applause junkie ever since you first set foot on a grammar school stage. Frasier: (enraged) I was drawn to the theater because of it's discipline and collaborative spirit! Niles: Oh, please. In your sixth-grade production of Oklahoma you took so many curtain calls, Mrs. Van Raaphorst had to lasso you and pull you from the stage.
      Frasier: That woman never understood me or the role of farmer number three!

    • Frasier: Bob and Bethany, 'car chat', please! I mean how can anyone drone on for three hours about a subject that nobody even understands? Roz: Yeah! We were there first!

    Trivia (2)

    • Bebe says, "There's an audience out there waiting for two people to ride in on a donkey..." The animal they ride in on, however, is a mule, not a donkey. A mule is a cross between a horse and a donkey. Although the smaller donkey would be the traditional mount for someone wearing a sombrero, it would have a difficult time carrying both Bebe and Frasier.

    • In this episode, Martin's eyesight has deteriorated to the point where he can't even tell the difference between a coffee cup and a cream server at the Café Nervosa . As a result, he buys glasses. In the following episode (To Thine Old Self Be True) there are several scenes of Martin comfortably reading both the newspaper and the "Seattle SEX-PRESS" without glasses.
