    Trivia (1)

    • When Niles and Frasier are talking in Cafe Nervosa, the viewer can see a female customer in the background when the camera shows Frasier in the foreground. The entire conversation between Niles and Frasier lasts about one minute, yet in that time the viewer can see the woman (1) chatting with her unseen companion, (2) casually lifting her coffee mug to her lips and appearing to blow on it as if to cool it, (3) chatting some more with her mug back on the table, (4) lifting it to her lips again and blowing again, (5) thumbing through some sort of book and (6) getting up and leaving the cafe. Why did she get up to leave? If her coffee was too hot for her to drink, it must have just been served. She couldn't possibly have finished and paid for her coffee before leaving the cafe.

    Allusions (1)

    • Title: The Devil and Dr. Phil The episode is obviously a reference to Stephen Vincent Benet's short story "The Devil and Daniel Webster" which involves a man risking his immortal soul in dealing the Lucifer, represented here by Bebe and several satanic allusions, such as eerie lighting and music from The Omen.
