    • Sherry: You'll feel much better once you've had my scrambled egg tacos and Spam patties.
      Frasier: Yes, in keeping with the trusty adage, "starve a cold, disgust a fever."

    • Frasier: As we speak, hordes of viral Visigoths are hurling themselves over the battlements of my immune system, laying waste to my... Oh, dear God, you see how weak I am? I can't even finish a simple Visigoth metaphor.

    • Martin: Well, I'm sorry to tax your delicate system, but Daphne's back, and she and Sherry are at it again, and now she says she's going to stay overnight with Niles and I don't know what to do and this is your department!
      Frasier: All right, unless blood has been spilled, and on a carpeted area, I don't care. Now get out!

    • Daphne: Sex. That's your answer for everything. It's like you're part rabbit. People ought to rub your feet for luck.

    • Daphne: You've had your big conk in my business all day!
      Sherry: That better mean "nose"!
      Daphne: And what if it doesn't?

    • Daphne: (reflecting on her current lack of a love life) I mean, I have been keeping myself on the shelf lately, and feeling a little like the good china.
      Niles: Someone should be eating off you every day.
