  • Quotes (5)

    • Niles: Because this time it's different. Our love is different. It's not based on somebody's expectations or... or anything I'm supposed to be. When I was with Maris, or with Mel, I found myself thinking about you. Going about my day or even when I was in a session, I found myself thinking about you. Well, now we're together. I find myself thinking about you. It's not going to stop.... I'm still mad at you.

    • (Daphne knocks at the door) Daphne: Niles. Niles: Well, this is an unexpected treat. Daphne: Niles, I have something to tell you. Niles: Is it that I am the sexiest man you've ever known? Daphne: No. I, I mean yes you are. But thats not why I'm here.

    • Frasier: I remember in my day of private practice, oh I did have my share of female adulation. Roz: Oh my God, were you able to cure them? Frasier: I am not a miracle worker, Roz.

    • Frasier: Dad has brought home a cricket! Niles: A cricket? Get behind me Daphne!

    • Niles: Daphne I need the recipe for the glaze, it's in my brief case in the burned sienna colored folder. (goes into the kitchen) Daphne: No problem! (turns to Martin) Martin: Brown, but don't tell anyone I know that.

    Notes (2)

    • Mary Hart was credited as a "Special Appearance".

    • The last episode featured Frasier's subconscious, this one has Daphne's. Mary Hart "tells" Daphne to look through Niles' briefcase.

    Trivia (1)

    • Frasier claims to have had - in his days of private practice - a great deal of female adulation, but Niles could have called him on it. In Season Five's "The Maris Councillor", Frasier complains that no patients have ever fallen in love with him, "...not even that fat lady who brought me fudge".
