When Dr. Crandell arrives he orders a Black & White neat. However Sam mistakenly pours it on the rocks and Dr. Crandell says nothing about it.
Rebecca: Your husband came onto me at a local bar.
Valerie: Do you mean he propositioned you?
Rebecca: Well he didn't exactly proposition me.
Valerie: Well what exactly did he do?
Rebecca: He asked me about my feelings.
Valerie: That is his field you know.
Rebecca: That isn't all he did. He rubbed my leg with his disgusting foot.
Sam: (to maid) She never gets tired of telling this part.
Lawrence: (about his wife) I've been faithful to his woman for 15 years mostly because she's the scariest bitch you'd ever want to meet.
Rebecca: (to Sam) You do nine stupid things before breakfast.
Rebecca: The nerve of [Lawrence] saying I have an emotional problem. I'd like to meet him in a dark alley with a cleaver.
Sam: What was that about?
Rebecca: He toed my calf.
Frasier: Excuse me?
Rebecca: [Lawrence] was rubbing his foot on my leg.
Rebecca: Alright, [Lawrence] came onto me in my office.
Frasier: Dr. Crandell? Came onto you?
Sam: What's he do? Did he touch you?
Rebecca: No, he did not touch me.
Frasier: Make an indecent proposal?
Rebecca: Of course not.
Sam: Comment on your looks? Asked you for a date? Whistled? Flashed? What?
Rebecca: He asked about my feelings.
Sam: The man should be horsewhipped.
There's a knock on the door. Rebecca thinks it's Lawrence.
Rebecca: (yells) I give up! You make me crazy with desire. I can't keep my hands off you. What do you want?! (Woody opens the door)
Lawrence: Is there a photocopy machine around here?
Sam: Rebecca's got one in her office. You don't mind do you?
Rebecca: No, help yourself.
Lawrence: That's very kind of you. Any special instructions?
Rebecca: Yes, just push the blue button. It's right under the sign that says, "This machine is for photocopying documents, not your butt."
Lawrence: I make it a point to tell my wife at least once a day, "You're my world. You're my life and I love you."
Norm: I bet my wife would love to hear those words. Could you give her a call?
Frasier: Why didn't you just bring Valerie with you?
Lawrence: Well you know she hates to travel. Besides we decided this was a perfect opportunity to test my theories about martial fidelity. And I'm glad to say that after 10 months of celibacy, I can how pronounce my principles sound.
Sam: After 10 months of celibacy I couldn't even pronounce my name.
Sam: What's the book about?
Frasier: It's a marriage manual. It's entitled "The Forever Couple: The Joy of Loving One Person for the Rest of your Life."
Norm: Ah science-fiction. Those usually sell great.
Norm: What you're not going to insult anyone?
Carla: Well not unless I can do it so subtly that he doesn't know he's being insulted.
John McMartin, who plays Dr, Crandell in this episode, also played a fellow radio host of Frasier's in the Frasier episode, "And the Whimper Is..."
This episode was originally written to showcase the return of John Cleese as marital expert Dr. Simon Finch-Royce (seen in the season 5 episode "Simon Says"). When Cleese proved unavailable, the script was rewritten to feature a new -- but very similar -- guest character.
James Burrows received a 1989 Emmy nomination for Best Direction in a Comedy Series for his work on this episode.
