    • Frasier: (Speaking of Freddie who has just arrived for a visit) He doesn't seem very happy to be here. He hardly said two words to me.
      Martin: Oh, it's perfectly normal - you're his dad. Kids that age don't want to talk to their dads.
      Frasier: I never stopped talking to you.
      Martin: (after a thoughtful pause) I know, buddy.

    • Frasier: Frederick, we're gonna be leaving in the morning.
      Freddie: But I don't want to go.
      Frasier: No? I thought you'd be dying to get back to your Game Boy.
      Freddie: Well, yeah. But I kind of made plans.
      Frasier: Oh, really? With who?
      Freddie: Nobody.
      Frasier: Oh, then you don't have plans. We leave at...nine-ish.
      Freddie: OK, fine. I have plans with Melody.
      Frasier: The s'mores girl?
      Freddie: Yeah.
      Frasier: She's cute.
      Freddie: She's a cheerleader.
      Frasier: Ho-ho! I remember a particular cheerleader from my youth: Lorna. She was a beautiful girl. In fact, I was so intimidated by her I-I could never even work up the courage to approach her...
      Freddie: Dad, I kissed her.
      Frasier: Oh...
      Freddie: I know. It was her first time. It was my first time too.
      Frasier: I see.
      Freddie: Don't tell Mom about this, OK? She'd ask all kinds of stupid questions.
      Frasier: Don't worry, son. It's just between you and me.

    • Martin: When you hear that scratching at your window late at night, remember that young couple... (thrusts out his hand, with a fork sticking out of the sleeve) and Fork Hand!
      (Frasier gives him a look)
      Martin: Oh, come on! That's scary stuff. I told that to Duke last summer, and he wet his sleeping bag.
      Frasier: Wait a minute. Isn't this Duke's sleeping bag?!
      Martin: Now you're scared!

    • Daphne: We need a man's opinion: the velvet trim or the multi-colored? (sees) Where's Jack?
      Niles: He left.
      Roz: He left?!
      Niles: It was an emergency.
      Roz: What kind of an emergency? Like he-saw-me-and-he-thought-I-was-a-dog emergency?!
      Niles: No, no, no, he said you were pretty.

    • Freddie: I have to go to the bathroom.
      Frasier: Freddie, I...I don't see a bathroom.
      Martin: You're surrounded by fifty thousand acres of it.
      Frasier: Ah. Oh, how quaintly rustic! Yes, Frederick, just pick a tree and make it your own!

    • Niles: Freddie, about what you just saw - I know you've always had special feelings for Daphne, and there's something I need to tell you.
      Freddie: I already know about you guys.
      Niles: Oh. Uh, and you're OK with that?
      Freddie: I liked her when I was a little kid. I'm over it now. I mean, she's like a hundred.
      Niles: She most certainly is not. (Nyah Nyah!) It just burns you up that I got her...

    • Daphne: I mean, what could be sadder than growing old alone? (realizes) I wasn't talking about you, Dr. Crane. You've got your father to grow old with.
      Frasier: Ah, yes.

    • Frasier: No, no, Roz, it is, actually. You see, every year we pick a book to read and discuss. It's been sort of a bonding thing between us. Gosh, you know, I hate to brag, but Freddie really is a very articulate young man. He's very imaginative, and not to mention what a great sense of humor he has.
      Roz: Oh, that reminds me, Frasier! Alice said the cutest thing this morning...
      Frasier: Now careful, Roz, you don't want to turn into one of those mothers who bores everybody talking about her child.

    • Cleo: Hi, Dr. Crane. I've been dating three different guys, and I can't choose between them.
      Frasier: Is it that you can't choose, or you don't want to choose?
      Cleo: It's just hard. One's really funny, one's adventurous, and one's sensitive. They're all gorgeous too.
      Roz: Oh, excuse me, Cleo! This show is for people with real problems!
