    • (Niles climbs a Christmas tree to get out of the elevator) Niles: I suppose in times of crisis, someone must step forward and be a hero. Today that man is Niles Crane! Tomorrow, it will be my dry cleaner, Mr. Lee.

    • (Roz learns that Frasier told her mother about her pregnancy) Frasier: Would you calm down? Roz: Calm down? No, I will not calm down! I am completely FREAKED! I am PREGNANT! And you told my crazy MOTHER! And my Christmas is ruined, and I'm too fat to even BE Mrs. Santa and I HATE this HOLIDAY!! (kicks a large prop and storms off)
