Roz: So does anything look good to you here? Frasier: Well, let's see. Who could we be shopping for? Hmm, perhaps a, a honey-voiced radio therapist who's birthday's just around the corner? Roz: No, this present is not for you - it's for your brother. Frasier: Oh all right, Roz, don't be coy. I think it's very smart you fishing for hints like this - you wanted to avoid a misstep like you made last year. Roz: What misstep? You said you loved Pagliacci. Frasier: Yes, I said the opera, not the porcelain crying crown figurine! Roz: Look, Niles pulled some strings and got Alice on a list for a really good preschool, so I thought I'd just get him a little thank you gift, which was why I was asking for your stupid opinion in the first place. Forget it. Frasier: All right, fine. Roz: I'll figure it out for myself. Frasier: Have it your own way, that's fine. But I tell you what, don't get him a porcelain Pagliacci. He already has one!

  • Daphne: I know you'll make fun of me. But I had a vision that I'm meant to be with another man. Martin: Who? Daphne: I couldn't see his face. I don't know anything about him. He was just wearing a red bow tie. Frasier: Are you seriously going to dump Donny because of some psychic vision? Don't you think that's a little unwise? Daphne: Well, your brother didn't think so. Frasier: Niles knows about this? Daphne: Yes. He helped me to see that ending things with Donny was my only choice. Unlike you, he believes in my visions; he knows I have a gift.

  • (The doorbell sounds and Frasier goes to answer it) Frasier: That'll be Donny. Martin: What do you think about all this vision stuff? Frasier: Obviously there's some psychological reason that she's having second thoughts. It's got nothing to do with an - an apparition in a red bow tie. (Frasier answers the door to a grinning Niles who has donned a bright red bow tie) Frasier: (appalled) Niles, you jackass, will you take that thing off!

  • (Martin is looking around) Martin: Are you sure you didn't throw it away in the recycling? Frasier: Are you actually looking for the TV Guide?! Martin: Well - I have to plan my weekend! Frasier: (sarcastic) You really do have the world on a string, don't you, Dad?
