FILTER BY TYPE

  • Trivia

    • Niles wants to take Daphne to a restaurant called "Au Pied du Cochon". In French, this means "The Pig's Trotter" or "The Pig's Foot".

    • Niles says on Daphne's wedding day, to Martin and Frasier, that he told her he loved her on his three-day wedding anniversary, making Daphne's wedding his four-day anniversary. At Nervosa, Mel says it's their four-day anniversary, when at this point one more night has passed and it's now five days since they married.

  • Quotes

    • Daphne: And what about Niles' dignity?
      Frasier: Well, Maris got that in the divorce.
      Niles: (silently mouthing) Very funny.

    • Donny: I'm gonna hit you with intentionally negligent infliction of emotional distress. Layman's terms: I'm gonna sue your ass off!

    • Daphne: (about Simon) I suppose he followed that up with some sort of clumsy advance?
      Roz: Oh, he tried, but I told him to get lost. Then he hit on my babysitter. She showed him why she's the star of her JV soccer team.
      Daphne: You know, Mum claims he was dropped as a child. I think he was thrown.

    • (Niles and Daphne are deciding where to run off to)
      Daphne: Well, to the right is Seattle, and to the left, I guess, is Canada.
      Niles: Any thoughts?
      Daphne: What's left for us in Seattle? Ex-wives, and ex-fiance. A tangled mess of bitterness and hurt feelings.
      Niles: Yes, but an excellent symphony and world-class dining.
      Daphne: Then there's Canada: a fresh start, a chance for adventure.
      Niles: Grizzly bears.

  • Allusions

    • The episode title is an actual line from the classic nursery rhyme "Hey Diddle Diddle". One assumes Daphne is the "dish" and Niles is the "spoon".
