  • Quotes

    • Daphne: (reacting to Niles and Frasier wondering aloud why their father has "mysteriously" invited them to join him for drinks at Duke's) What a couple of wallies! I mean, I have never met a family that worked so hard at being uncomfortable with each other! Could it be that he just wants to lift a pint with his sons?
      Niles: No. Duke's is where Dad hangs out with his cop buddies. Where he goes to escape the stresses, strains and the petty annoyances of everyday life.
      Frasier : In other words, us.

    • (Niles sniffs Daphne's perfume, "Forbidden")
      Niles: Is that... "Forbidden"?
      Frasier: (darkly) In every sense of the word.

    • Roz: I'd like to meet the idiot that came up with these. Take a grape, let it shrivel into a disgusting little wart and cover it with perfectly good chocolate. What the hell. I'll just suck the chocolate off.
      Frasier: Be sure to save what's left. Maybe you can make some wine.

    • Daphne: If you ask me, you Americans have an unhealthy obsession with sex.
      Martin: Hey, I'm sorry we can't all be as chaste and restrained as the Royal Family.
      Frasier: Good one, Dad!
      Martin: I've been savin' it!

    • Frasier: Men with guns will have one less place to go and liquor up.
      Niles: There's always Roz's place.
      Roz: What do you say about me when I'm not around?

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • When Niles is mentioning different bars would be torn down after Duke's, one name he mentions is Moe's. This bar is a staple of the animated series The Simpsons...and, besides Frasier and Cheers, Kelsey Grammar is most famous for his character of Sideshow Bob on The Simpsons.

    • The title of the scene at the bar Duke's was "Where Nobody Knows Their Name." That is a reference to the Cheers theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name".

    • Episode Title: Duke's, We Hardly Knew Ye

      The title is similiar to the 1977 TV movie Johnny, We Hardly Knew Ye.
