Trivia, Quotes, Notes and Allusions

Quotes (3)

  • Niles: (about Frasier seeing both Faye and Cassandra) Got any more hiding in the grotto, Hef?

  • Frasier: My problem is that each of them appeals to different sides of my personality. Faye is artistic and cerebral and cultured, and Cassandra is passionate and fun and spontaneous. Martin: Well, my vote sure goes for Cassandra. Daphne: Oh, you would say that. Any young woman who shows you any attention, you're ready to sign over your pension check! I think he should go for Faye. Martin: Oh, Faye, Faye. If he wants some boring, artsy-fartsy conversation, he's got Niles!

  • Niles: (tiring of Frasier's ego) I'm beginning to think Napoleon had a "Frasier Complex".

Trivia (1)

  • As Faye is Jewish (as seen in Merry Christmas, Mrs Moskowitz), it is entirely appropriate that her apartment's front door bears a mezuzah (an encased scroll of biblical passages). However, although the mezuzah shown on her doorpost correctly slants inward, it is shown on the wrong post of the doorframe.

Allusions (2)

  • The title of the second scene is "OF ALL THE COFFEE JOINTS IN ALL THE TOWNS IN ALL THE WORLD...". This of course is borrowed from the 1942 classic "Casablanca" where Rick says, "Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she had to walk into mine".

  • Title: When a Man Loves Two Women The episode title is a reference to the 1966 song, "When a Man Loves a Woman". This title was also shared by a 1994 movie.
