  • Trivia

    • Frasier (doing the lead-in for Bulldog's sports show): Today's topic: what's wrong with our Seattle Mariners? (smirking) if you haven't had a chance to voice an opinion on that in the last eighteen years you'll want to today!

      The air date of this show is November, 1994. The Seattle Mariners finished a dismal 49-63 in the strike-shortened 1994 season. However, in the 1995 season, the Seattle Mariners won their first division championship in and defeated the New York Yankees in the the American League Division Series. The M's came within two wins of making it to The World Series, losing to the Cleveland Browns in the American League Championship Series.

  • Quotes

    • Frasier: (to Roz, referring to Madeleine Marshall with whom he is smitten) You know, I haven't said this out loud, but... here goes. It's possible that she could be the woman I spend the rest of my life with.
      Roz: Go. Go do that. Get married, have a couple of kids, move to the country - buy a puppy! Live happily ever after. (desperately) Just don't tell me about it -- I need a boyfriend!
      Frasier: Dear Roz. Dear silly Roz. Dear silly, horny Roz.

    • Madeleine: Frasier...
      (Madeleine passes Frasier from the shower, taking off her towel)
      Frasier: Oh my God.
      Lilith: Frasier?
      Frasier: (shocked) Oh My God!

    • Etienne Degas: Oh, I wish I had been killed in the war!
      Mrs. Degas: Oh, it's hard to get killed when you run the other way!

    • Niles: If you ask me, Frasier, your trepidation is well-founded. It is possible to move a relationship along too fast, and ultimately marry too hastily. You could find, a few years down the line, that the person isn't really right for you, and then what happens if you meet the right person--someone who really excites you and makes you feel alive--but you can't act upon it because you're trapped in a stale, albeit comfortable Maris!...marriage. I have to go now.
