  • Trivia

    • In this episode we learn that Bulldog was raised and educated as a Roman Catholic as Frasier introduces his boyhood priest and confessor.

    • (Daphne and Martin are arriving at the Seabee Awards dinner and Frasier compliments Martin on how good he looks)
      Martin: Well, thanks -- though I guess any guy looks good in a monkey suit.
      Frasier: Oh, yeah.
      Daphne: On the drive over I started musing on why they call it a monkey suit...

      Actually, Martin isn't wearing a "monkey suit". A "monkey suit" refers to a tuxedo with tails (the back split and extending down in two curving flaps to the back of the knees). If Martin had been wearing a tuxedo with tails (commonly just called "tails"), Daphne wouldn't have had to wonder about the origin of the term.

  • Quotes

    • Roz: (About her large dress) The best part was when the size two sales girl said I could use this again after my pregnancy.
      Frasier : Well, perhaps you could cut off the bow, remove the sleeves and, uh...
      Bulldog : Stick a poll in it and go camping.

    • Martin: We all get obsessed sometimes. The important thing is to drop it before you start yakking on and on to someone who doesn't give a rat's ass.
      Frasier: Is that your roundabout way of saying you don't want to discuss it?
      Martin: You want to take the direct route?

    • Waitress: Just go down to the basement, cross through the kitchen to the hall, and ask for the Napoleon Room.
      Niles: Oh, the Napoleon Room, that sounds charming.
      Waitress: We call it that because the ceilings are so low.

    • (Bulldog and Frasier are in a queue at Cafe Nervosa)
      Frasier: What's going on anyway? My God, I've got an appointment in 20 minutes.
      Bulldog: Ah, some weenie made a big stink so they got to clean the milk steamer every time they use it.
      Frasier: Oh.
      Bulldog: It was you, wasn't it?
      Frasier: Well if requesting basic sanitary procedures makes me a weenie, then a weenie be I.

    • Daphne: Roz, is everything all right?
      Roz: Yeah, I'm fine. It's just that my hair is huge and this dress is a joke.
      Frasier: Oh nonsense, Roz. You look divine.
      Roz: No, I look like Divine!
