    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (19)

      • Cliff: No, kale's more of a family of greens. Anything with a pungent aroma and a loose head can be called kale.
        Carla: Get you another beer, kale?

      • Frasier: Woody, you know Sigmund Freud might suggest that your aversion to vegetables stems from some early childhood trauma.
        Lilith: Pffft.
        Frasier: You sputtered, my darling?
        Lilith: Honestly, Frasier. You must be the last psychiatrist on earth who hasn't abandoned Sigmund Freud's theories.
        Frasier: What are you saying?
        Lilith: Merely that his theories are outdated sexist superstitions unsupported by a shred of clinical evidence.
        Frasier: You're drunk. My wife is completely smashed--blotto. Sam, no more boilermakers for Dr. Sternin-Crane.
        Lilith: I've had nothing to drink.
        Frasier: Ah, the worst kind of drunk. For your information Freud has a lot to teach about Woody's problem. If he were here today, he would, after striking Lilith, tell us that Woody is suffering from a subconscious barrier, easily removed by some elemental Freudian analysis.
        Woody: Isn't there anything faster?
        Frasier: Oh, many things, but nothing quite as lucrative. But, if you wish instant relief, I suppose we could try a little...well, post-hypnotic suggestion.
        Lilith: Pffft.
        Frasier: Another wet objection, my love?
        Lilith: Hypnosis, Frasier? Why only go back a century for your treatment? Why not bleed him with leeches, or drill a hole in his cranium and let the evil spirits leak out?
        Frasier: Ignore her, Woody. It's the gin talking.

      • Woody: How do I learn to like broccoli, cauliflower, and kale?
        Norm: Some things you have to develop a taste for slowly. Look give me a beer, okay? Put a stalk of broccoli in that beer, okay? The beer taste will kill the broccoli taste, but slowly, you'll get used to it, okay?
        Woody: We don't have any broccoli.
        Norm: Well thanks for the beer.

      • Cliff: Hey, what say we amuse ourselves with one of these trivia napkins?
        Sam: Oh, so you've finally starting to enjoy these jobbies, huh?
        Cliff: I was being a baby. I know you like me more than a stack of paper.
        Norm: Yeah, whatever.

      • Sam: Woody, [Veggie Boy] can't [taste] that bad. Let's look at the ingredients. Water, broccoli, cauliflower, and kale.
        Frasier: Well, maybe it just sounds bad in black and white. (takes a sip) Kale was not a good idea.

      • Frasier: Wonderful performance, Woody. We always knew you had it in you to be a corporate shill.
        Woody: Thanks, Dr. Crane.

      • Woody: It's just a small part in a commercial, but I don't know if I can pull it off.
        Norm: What do you play?
        Woody: A bartender.
        Sam: Woody, you are a bartender.
        Woody: But in this commercial, I have to serve drinks.
        Sam: Woody, you serve drinks all the time.
        Woody: But I have to talk and serve drinks.
        Sam: You talk and serve drinks everyday.
        Woody: Now you've made me nervous about working here.

      • Frasier: I never knew trivia could be so fascinating.
        Cliff: I gave you that fact months ago. You said you weren't interested.
        Norm: Cliffie, it's different with the napkins.
        Cliff: What's so different?
        Norm: Napkins don't spit when they talk.

      • Sam: Ever since I got the bar back, I've wanted to say, "Thank you for patronizing me."
        Frasier: Oh, Sam. I know you wanted to use a big word there. I believe what you meant to say was, "Thank you for your patronage."
        Sam: Really? What's the difference?
        Frasier: Patronage mean customers. Patronizing is the way one would talk to a small, dull child.
        Sam: Kind of how you're talking to me right now.
        Frasier: Aren't you cute?

      • Sam: What can I do for you?
        Norm: Open the beer taps and take the day off.

      • Woody: It's a letter from the ad agency. It says, due to lack of consumer interest they're discontinuing the product. What does that mean, Miss Howe?
        Rebecca: It means they're not making Veggie Boy anymore, I guess nobody liked it
        Woody: How can you not like it? It's broccoli, cauliflower, and kale...has America gone mad?

      • Frasier: Woody, let's go back into the office...
        Woody: Get that watch away from me old man, I've got crops to plant.

      • Sam: So, Jill, I've never met such a talented actress, is there anything i can look forward to seeing you in, like my shower?
        Jill: You're really funny Sam, did you ever think of doing stand up?
        Sam: Well, there's a first time for everything I guess.

      • Woody: Mr. Peterson made a goofy face.
        Norm: I did not, that's my normal expression.

      • Norm: This is amazing!
        Cliff: The magic of the movies, huh, Norm?
        Norm: No, the magic of the doughnut table!

      • Norm: Woody, you got stuff all over your face.
        Woody: That's pancake.
        Norm: Woah, is there a steam table here I'm missing?

      • Director: Just look right into the camera and say the line.
        Woody: I like it!
        Director: Not now Woody.
        Woody: I meant i like your direction, its very forceful and right to the point.

      • Carla: Hey Woody, it's 5 o' clock, you know where your commercial's playing?

      • Norm: Lying is one of the seven deadly sins?
        Cliff: Sure. You've got lying, greed, lust, bashful...
        Norm: Those are the seven deadly dwarfs.
