  • Norm becomes a permanent house guest when he injures his back while painting at the Crane's.

    This is my absolute favorite episode because of everything that happened at the Crane residence after Norm hurts his back. The bet that Carla and Rebecca made was absolutely funny as well. If you ask me, Carla was indeed an absolutely hilarious waitress. I highly recommend this episode to anyone who hasn't seen it.

    • Cliff: I was in the neighborhood so I thought I'd stop in.
      Norm: Yeah, you finished your route?
      Cliff: No, they can wait.

    • Norm: Can you just drop me off at home, Frasier?
      Lilith: Okay Norm, just be careful.
      Frasier: We can't take him home. Vera's out of town. Can you imagine Norm just sitting there all alone in his house helpless in front of the TV?
      Lilith: Hang onto your hat, but yes.

    • Frasier: Oh say you know Norm, the guy on This Old House said you should apply paint with vertical strokes.
      Norm: Yeah, what's This Old House?
      Frasier: Well it's a show on PBS.
      Norm: What's PBS?
      Lilith: Tell me you didn't see that coming a mile away.

    • Frasier: Norm, are you busy?
      Norm: Oh good one.

    • Rebecca: Carla, do you think I'll make a good mother?
      Carla: Nope.
      Rebecca: What do you mean?
      Carla: You asked me a question. I gave you an answer.
      Rebecca: But I'm serious.
      Carla: Sorry I'm just being honest.
      Rebecca: You're not being honest. You're being mean.
      Carla: Sometimes you get a twofer.

    • Lilith: Frasier? Frasier? Doctor, are you listening to me?
      Yes, please continue.
      (wakes up)
      I hate it when you do that. Say, what time is it?
      Lilith: It's 1:00 in the morning, and your friends are still downstairs.
      Frasier: Just try to ignore it, dear. It's only for a couple more days.
      Lilith: I will not ignore it. Now get rid of them.
      Frasier: I'm the one who hurt Norm. I'm responsible.
      Lilith: But you're not responsible for the others.
      Frasier: You don't understand, dear. You get one, you get them all. It's like a hive mentality, and Norm must be their queen.
      Lilith: Get rid of them now.
      Frasier: And if I don't?
      Lilith: Would you like to ever see me naked again in the nineties?
      Frasier: You know, that would be more effective if you didn't use it every time you ever want me to do something.
