    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • For this episode, a dimmer switch has been newly added to the post beside Frasier's Eames classic recliner to facilitate the scene in which he runs around the apartment turning on all the lights. This switch also figures in a number of future episodes, such as Season 4's "A Crane's Critique" wherein Frasier uses it to get the lighting "just right" to read T. H. Houghton's new book. It is also used to set the mood for a number of Frasier's elaborate "romantic" dates. Ironically, when Frasier actually uses the switch for the first time, the action is hidden behind the large wooden column in his living room; in other words, he may as well have just pretended to hit a switch.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Frasier: (to Martin) Would you get Eddie off of the couch - or else it's out to the garbage chute for the thrill ride of his life!

      • Frasier: Daphne, you can't go. You have to stay. I've only just recently realized how important you are to us. You see, if you go, Dad and I will kill each other. I'm not just tossing out hyperbole here. I'm speaking in the most literal sense. Dad and I--both dead! Only he'll be lying there with a bacteria-ridden sponge protruding from his mouth like a bloated tongue.

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • Frasier: (to Niles) Well, I hate to break this to you, Waltzes-with-Snobs, but they've left you on the mountaintop.

        Frasier is making a play on the name of the title character in Dances with Wolves when he points out Niles' relationship to his haughty, so-called friends.

      • Frasier: Say, am I crazy, or is there a bright golden haze on the meadow?

        Frasier is mocking Niles' country togs with lyrics from the musical Oklahoma.

      • Title card: THEY'RE PLAYING DO-SI-DO, BUT NOT FOR ME

        This is a variation on the lyrics, 'They're writing songs of love, but not for me', from the Gershwin tune of the same name, made famous by Billie Holiday. It is meant to refer, of course, to the "Hoedown For The Homeless", to which Niles was not invited.

      • This title is similar to the song "Come Fly With Me" by Frank Sinatra.
