    • Niles: Frasier, not to appear unsympathetic but, I've had my 'I'm dangerous face' on so long it's starting to hurt.

    • Frasier: (describing his contempt for the idea of a focus group for his show to Niles) I mean can you imagine Sigmund Freud being dragged into a room full of Viennese laymen to hear remarks like "Hate that Oedipal thing but love the penis envy."

    • Manu: All this because you had to know why I do not like you. Frasier: Well, you were kind of vague. Manu: You want to know why? I'll tell you why. I think you are a smarty-pants. I was too polite to say that before. But then you spied on me, you stalked me, you badgered me, you poured Yoo-Hoo down my Dockers, you crunched my hand, and then, as if all that was not enough, you burned down my newsstand, my livelihood, a gift to me from my beloved uncle, may he rest in peace! Frasier: Was that so hard?

    • Martin: Hey, Frasier, how was the focus group? Frasier: Fine, I guess. Martin: Oh, well, you said yourself they didn't mean anything. Frasier: Yes, well, it's one thing to say that. It's another to sit there being personally attacked! One man actually said, "I just don't like him." Niles: Only one?

    Trivia (2)

    • As presented here, the two-way mirror would be ineffective with Frasier and Roz in a room with the lights on. Two-way mirrors only work when the viewer's room is dark. In other words, as shown, each side would be equally visible to the other.

    • As Frasier and Niles walk from the kitchen musing about a focus group expressing an opinion about Freud, the camera takes such a wide shot that you can actually see the stage lights above the set.
