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?
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.
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.
