  • Quotes

    • Martin : (While in a doctor's waiting room) Did you used to keep your patients waiting like this?
      Frasier : No, just the compulsives. It was part of their therapy.

    • Martin : (While taking the Cosmo quiz) "Are your nipples sensitive?"
      Frasier : Would you mind doing that quietly. It's not an oral exam.
      Martin : You haven't seen the second question.

    • Frasier : Dad, this is ludicrous. Why do you keep avoiding the doctor?
      Martin : Because I feel fine. I'll go to the doctor when I don't feel fine. Besides, I don't like Dr. Jennings. He's got a model of a colon on his desk, he keeps his tongue depressors in it.

    • Niles: I came as soon as I could. I was in the middle of my workout. I can always pump iron later. (smiles at Daphne, who excuses herself to make snacks)
      Frasier: Pump iron. Niles, you don't even pump your own gas.

    • Daphne: I suppose I like my gents more on the manly side. Was that a little swan you made?
      Niles: No, it was a B-52.

    • Frasier: (talking about death) I'd miss so much. I'd never get to see my son hit his first home run. That'd be a terrible thing for a father to miss...
      Martin: Tell me about it!

    • Frasier: Why is it that everytime we have a serious discussion we end up talking about your sex life?
      Roz: Because I have one.

    • Martin: I remember when I took you for your first tetanus shot, you were about five or six.
      Frasier: Oh boy, was I scared. I remember you holding my hand.
      Martin: Yeah. Bent over that table, dropped your little drawers. When the nurse gave you the shot, you took your mind off it by reciting the names of all of Puccini's operas. Right then I knew you'd never be a cop.

    • Bobbie: You're not Jewish are you?
      Frasier: No, no, uh my ex-wife is though and uh so and thus my son is which makes me sort of well I guess uh you could say ... No, I'm not Jewish.

    • Frasier: I've done some research and I've discovered that most unexpected deaths occur in the home. And Daphne, this is where you come in, the actual finding of the body.
      Daphne: Ooh, save the best part for me, eh?

    • Daphne: I'm a health care provider. I've had my fair share of patients die on me.
      Martin: That's a comfort.

    • Frasier: You can't spend your life being obsessed with death.
      Newman: You're not Jewish, are you?
