    • (Martin and Frasier attempt to have a conversation together)
      Frasier: I'm talking about your emotions, your soul!  Some sort of painful, gut wrenching experience!
      Martin: Other than this one?!

    • Frasier: Where's my finely ground Kenyan blend from Starbucks? Martin: (pointing) That's it, Daphne put an eggshell and some all spice in it. Frasier: Well, didn't that just dress it up!

    • Frasier: Dad, I can't read my paper. Eddie's staring at me. Martin: Well, you do make quite a picture in the morning. Just ignore him. Frasier: I'm trying to! Martin: I'm talking to the dog!

    • Martin: Your breakfast is ready. Frasier: Oh, no! Dad, all I ever have is a bran muffin and a touch of yogurt. Martin: Girly food. Besides, I already fixed your breakfast. I made eggs in a nest. Frasier: Oh, yes. The Crane Family Specialty. Fried eggs swimming in fat, served in a hollowed-out piece of white bread. I can almost hear my left ventricle slamming shut as we speak. Martin: You want cheese on that? Frasier: No, I'd like to leave some blood flow for the clot to go swiftly to my brain.

    • Roz: Gary? I broke up with him three weeks ago... The sex was OK, but he was kind of limited... No, no, no, it wasn't that Gary was bad in bed. I mean, he knew where all the parts were. Unfortunately, most of them were his... Yes. Totally passionless. It was like he was thinking of someone else... I know I was... Somebody's here, I gotta go... All right, I'll talk to you later. Bye, Mom.

    Trivia (7)

    • Each episode has a different beginning title having to do with the Skyline of Seattle. This episode features an elevator going up the Space Needle.

    • Frasier makes a reference to his early suicide attempt, which was seen in the Cheers episode "The Girl in the Plastic Bubble (2)."

    • This is 1 of only 2 episodes to feature a title card before the end credits.

    • About halfway through the show, Frasier is sitting on the couch with a book. Just after he says to Daphne, "I'm in the middle of a very exciting chapter", there is a wide shot and you can clearly see the boom microphone drop into the shot from just above the bathroom door.

    • Life at KACL This episode marks the first appearance of Bulldog. We also learn that KACL has more than one studio, as Bulldog can't use Studio C for his show. This also establishes the pattern that KACL's daily schedule features Frasier's show followed by the Gonzo Sports Show.

    • Frasier: Oh dear God, it wasn't a dream! I'll get him for this... (menacingly) and his little dog too! This is with reference to the 1939 movie Wiard Of Oz in which the Wicked Witch repeatedly threatens to get Dorothy... and her little dog too!

    • Space Quest is a series of six computer games that follow the adventures of a hapless janitor named Roger Wilco, as he campaigns through the galaxy for truth, justice and really clean floors. Here Frasier campaigns through his world for just some space.
