FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Response: That was 5 episodes ago. Paul could have gotten a job as a toll booth attendant between that episode and this.

    • In this episode they say that Paul is a toll booth attendant. But in the episode "Crash of the Titans" he says that he is unemployed.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Frasier: It's all so strange. A seemingly insignificant creature lives and dies. A marriage is threatened, a child's education is almost destroyed. Yet somehow, someway...I'm getting some action out of it.

    • Sam: Hey, this had been driving me crazy. I got to know something Paul.
      Paul: What Sam?
      Sam: I'll try to put this as delicately as I can because you're my friend and I like ya and I don't want to insult ya. Why would any girl be caught dead with you when she could be with me?
      Paul: You thought that would offend me?
      Sam: I'm serious. What did you do? Slip her a mickey or something?
      Paul: Well since you asked me so nicely Sam, I'll tell ya. Paula is what we like to refer to as a chubby chaser.
      Sam: You're kidding. You mean she like to go out with guys who are uh...
      Paul: Portly Sam. The word is portly.

    • Frasier: Darling, what's wrong? You look so somber.
      Carla: How can you tell?
      Frasier: Took a shot, got lucky.

    • Sam: What just happened here guys?
      Norm: Well you got shot down, Sam.
      Sam: You know you read about those things but you never think they're going to happen to you.

    • Rebecca: I'm finally eating right for the first time in 30 years.
      Carla: 30? What were you doing the other 12?

    • Sam: What's with the vegetables?
      Carla: Same as always. They're watching TV.

    • Sam: I don't know what she's looking for in life, but if she can't find it here then she won't find it anywhere!

    • Frasier: Oh dear God.
      Sam: What is it?
      Frasier: Lilith is carrying a dead rat in her purse. Why would she be carrying a dead rat in her purse?
      Carla: Just a wild guess, a snack?

    • Lilith: Everyone in the lab called him Whitey.
      Carla: Are you sure they werent talking to you?
      Lilith: No, they were talking about Whitey the rat.
      Carla: Let me ask you again, you sure they weren't talking to you?

  • NOTES (1)

    • Bebe Neuwirth won the Emmy for Supporting Actress In A Comedy for this episode. Her first time nominated, she was up against co-star Rhea Pearlman. The following year, they were both up for the same award with Bebe repeating the success of the year before.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Ozzy Osbourne: At one point, Lilith suggests Frasier bite the head of a live bird. This is reminiscant of when rocker Ozzy Osbourne bit the head off a live dove during his first meeting with a new record label. It is also reminiscant of when Ozzy bit the head off a live bat in concert.
