  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • 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      Lilith: Merely that his theories are outdated sexist superstitions unsupported by a shred of clinical evidence.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.
