    • Frasier: Don't be silly big Willy.

    • Bebe: After dinner is the time I need a cigarette most; as long as I don't stop eating I'll be fine. Daphne: Well, I smoked for years and I never became addicted. To this day I can buy a pack, have a cig or two, toss them in a drawer, and not crave another for months. Bebe: There's a word for people who can do that. What is it? Oh, yes: bitch. Niles: There's no need to be insulting just because your wrestling with an unhealthy and disgusting habit. Bebe: It isn't disgusting. It's wonderful! Frasier: All right. Now Bebe, tell me, what is so wonderful about smoking? Bebe: Everything. I like the way a fresh, firm pack feels in my hand. I like peeling away that little piece of cellophane and seeing it twinkle in the light. I like coasting that first, sweet cylinder out of it's hiding place and bringing it slowly to my lips. Striking a match. Watching it burst into a perfect, little flame and knowing that soon that flame will be inside me. I love the first puff, pulling it into my lungs. Little fingers of smoke filling me, caressing me, feeling that warmth penetrate deeper and deeper until I think I'm going to burst then WHOOSH! Watching it flow out of me in a lovely sinuous cloud; no two ever quite the same. (Long silence) Daphne: More potatoes anyone? (Everyone reaches for food.)

    • Niles: Let her out that door, she'll smoke half a pack before the elevator hits the lobby. Frasier: How can you know that? You hardly spoke to her. Niles: Well, obviously you didn't see the crazed, cunning glint in her eyes. Frasier: She always looks like that. She's an agent.

    • Frasier: Oh, dear God, I'm sucking up to Yosemite Sam.
