  • Quotes (3)

    • Cam: Oh, get off your high horse. You do your fair share of polluting with that substitute for masculinity you're driving. Frasier: If mine's a substitute for masculinity then what is yours? Cam: Bigger.

    • Cam: Maybe next time you'll think twice before calling the police when I have a party. Frasier: What makes you think it was me? Cam: You're the only one in the building I didn't invite.

    • Frasier: Ah, good afternoon again, Cam. Cam: Listen Crane, you may have bamboozled the condo board, but we both know you just want more room to swing your fat ass into that BMW.
