    From Season 1, A Midwinternight's Dream, in our family we often randomly quote the line from when Daphne and Nilesare at his place during the thunderstorm, and suddenly as they are there together in the dark, Niles' antique German clock begins to work again, and Daphne bursts out, "Dr. Crane, look! Your Glockenspiel has sprung to life!" At which Niles glances down at his pants.

    Another favorite is the episode when Niles is temporarily sharing a place with Martin, and he walks in on Martin getting it on with his girlfriend, and the two of them can not face one another. Niles recaps what happened by telling Frasier how he went to the opera, and "The Soprano could not hit an E flat to save her life. I went home, opened the door, there was dad [making love to his woman] and I myself hit that e-flat."

    Does anyone know the verbatim quote from when Noel is telling Frasier about how he's translating the Klingon dictionary, and he tells Frasier what a certain phrase is in Klingonese, and Frasier finally ends up yelling at him to stop/get out using the Klingonese?

    I don't know the exact quotation, but from Memory Alpha it gets this mention:

    At the end of the fifth season, Frasier inadvertantly got all of his colleagues fired as the owner dropped the talk format and went to Salsa. Noel Shempsky remained at the station as he spoke fluent Spanish. On his return, Frasier asks how he's doing and Noel replies that he's still working on his English-Klingon dictionary. Frasier then asks how do you say "goodbye" in Klingonese (Krish-Krush) which Noel doesn't initially pick up the subtle hint. Frasier upsets Roz and in order to make amends, he changes his pompous, ego-centric return speech into one extolling Roz's virtues. Noel discovers the switch and begins reading from it to which Frasier angrily yells "Krish-Krush, Krish-Krush, Krish-Krush".


    It is very funny. Even better was from the episode: "Star Mitzva" where Noel gives him a Klingon lesson instead of Hebrew!

    In "We Two Kings" (Season 10), when Daphne finds out that Roz has the hots for Santa Claus, she tells Roz:
    "You're a real hoe, hoe, hoe"

    Note, for some reason the dirty word filter wouldn't allow this without the "e".  How ever would Santa or the seven dwarfs be able to use these forums?

    From "Roz's Turn" in Season 4.

    (referring to Bebe)

    Roz: It's not like she worships the devil.

    Frasier: She doesn't need to, he worships her!

    from Dinner at Eight: Season 1

    Niles sees Daphne for the first time, and is pleasantly surprised,
    to say the least. Daphne just smiles at him.


    Niles: Hmm... you're Daphne?
    Daphne: Why, yes I am.
    Niles: Well, I...

    Niles goes over to her eagerly, and they shake hands; he holds on,
    a little lost for words.


    Niles: When Frasier told me he'd hired an Englishwoman, I pictured
    someone a little more... not quite so... you're Daphne?
    Daphne: It's nice to meet you.

    ------and-------(also from Dinner at Eight)

    Daphne: Oh, wait a minute! I'm getting something on you...
    Frasier: [to Niles] She's psychic. We've decided to find it charming.
    Daphne: You have occasional bouts of colitis, don't you?
    Niles: [entranced] Yes!

    Daphne takes her hand away and goes to the door. Niles can't keep
    his eyes off her.


    Niles: Frasier...she's phenomenal!
    Daphne: [at the door] It's a gift. Well, cheerio!
    Niles: Ta-ta!

    My favourite quotes have gotta be from season 3's "High Crane Drifter":

    "Martin: This is my favourite part. [reading] "With one swift move the
    good doctor hoisted the miscreant out on his ear, declaring,
    'What you need is an etiquette lesson.'" [laughs] I love that!
    You got your own tough-guy catchphrase!
    Niles: It's perfect for you, Frasier. Dirty Harry meets Emily Post."

    Or

    "Niles: ...the rental agency didn't have a single luxury car
    left. They stuck me with some vehicle I believe they call a
    Hunchback.
    Frasier: No. I think that would be a Hatchback, Niles.
    Niles: It's painted panic-button red, with a large rear window that
    pops open.
    Frasier: Oh, that would be the Hatchback.
    Niles: Well, there's a novel idea: name the car after its most
    hideous feature. I presume it was a toss-up between
    "Hatchback" and "What's that odour coming from the floor?""

    Or

    "Frasier: ...How does an arrested
    adolescent who barely knows two chords get a penthouse?
    Daphne: His last album sold five million copies.
    Frasier: Oh. Well, then, I'll just add that to my list of reasons to
    die. "

    Genius!

    I forgot to add this 1....

    From season 1, episode: My Coffie with Niles.

    Frasier: Look, why don't we just change the subject from dad, and talk about something else.
    Niles: Absolutely, pick a new topic. Something light and frothy.
    Frasier: I agree. Are you in love with Daphne?

    Niles does a spit-take.

    Frasier: That's a little frothier than I had in mind!

    Niles: That preposterous! I refuse to dignify that question with an answer.

    Frasier stares at him.

    Niles: I don't know! There, I said it. There, are you happy? Oh, why did you have to hire Venus herself? Couldn't you have found some beefy, East-European scrub woman who reeked of ammonia?
    Frasier: Well, I asked, but it was an Olympic year. The agency was fresh out.
    Niles: Frasier, I can't get her out of my mind. When I look at Daphne she stirs a passion in me I've never known before.
    Frasier: Niles, you're not considering leaving Maris?
    Niles: Certainly not!
    Frasier: Well, I suppose the situation you're in is that you'd like to stay with Maris but you'd like an affair with Daphne.
    Niles: Yes. Can I do that?
    Frasier: No, you can't!
    Niles: I thought that I couldn't but you got my hopes up there for
    a minute.

    In the Fan Club episode when Frasier calls himself "Baadddd Celleebbrity" gets me every time. Also in Ham Radio. Almost every line is a great one-liner. (Multiple Murderer). (Watch out he's got a nug.) (Gil and his "rromping" line) Priceless.

    I love when frasier is being duped into singing three little maids that sounds so funny.

    Niles when wanting to get daphne from the pool bar:

    Frasier: Niles your being irrationel.

    Nilesont you dare call me irrationel-you knowhow crazy that makes me.

    The one with frasier´s painting at the resturant.

    Martin: It´s not so bad.

    Frasier: It looks like i invented fire and later one: I look like a fugitive from easter island.

    When bebe says ill make you a star i always laugh.

    When roz comes to frasier at nervosa, she asks him if he can translate something for the man she´s going out with.

    And frasier says: so thats it no more americans.

    When niles is in a fight with maris fencing teacher and they have to speak to eachother in different languages to get the message thru, and niles says something in yet another language.

    Frasier says: Yes niles thats just wath we need another language.

    There are many more.

    Multiple Murderer - That's an awesome episode. My other favorite quote from that one is when Niles is "killing" all the characters at the end with balloon pop sounds and says "Could the Mccallister sisters stand back to back? I'm short on bullets."

    From "Morning Becomes Entertainment" (Season 7)

    Martin (looking through Daphne's purse while wearing the ladies glasses he bought by mistake):
    I Can't find a damn thing in this purse.

    There are so many good quotes in Frasier! I think my favorite, though, is from the episode where Niles and Frasier try to open a restaurant (can't remember the name or season). I have 2 from that one

    Martin (referring to Niles and Frasier's exclusivity): Yeah, and if anyone manages to find the restaurant, you can post a sniper on the roof to shoot them!
    Roz: Big blue flame. Cherries everywhere!

    XD

    I love that line. You don't even need to see the cherries jubilee exploding.

    Daphne: Eat your broccoli, there'll be no vegetables in Hell!

    Not sure if I quoted that right, but it was part of a hilarious exchange between Daphne and Frasier.

    Yeah, I think you got it right. It's when she's refering to her mother and how her mother kept saying that there's no (random thing) in hell.

    (One of my all-time favorite quotes EVER: )
    Tom: Does this mean your dad's not gay either? Frasier: No, no, Dad's not gay
    Tom: But Niles...come on!
    Frasier: No, I'm afraid not.
    Tom: Huh? So, wait a minute. This Maris guy he kept mentioning is a woman?
    Frasier: Well, the jury's still out on that one.

    (The resturant episode )
    Roz: Big blue flash. Cherries...everywhere!

    (From 'Voyage of the Damned' )
    Niles: (spying on Maris through the bathroom door) Oh no, she's started without me.
    Frasier, Roz and Martin: Eeew!
    Niles: Drinking the champagne.

    Love quotes about Maris:

    Niles: Look, you see that rotund woman coming out of 'Chock Full o' Donuts'? Watch. Before she gets to her car, she'll finish that bear claw, and then go back in - this is her third time.
    Roz: You called us over to show us that? It's rude.
    Frasier: It's childish. (He and Roz walk away)
    Niles: It's Maris! (They come back)

    Frasier: Will Maris be joining us?
    Niles: Sadly, no. She had a bad experience there one Christmas Eve. An Italian soccer team was at the next table, Maris announced that she was in the mood for a goose, and, perhaps inevitably, tragedy ensued.

    Roz: You just tell her you know she's been mattress-surfing with some other guy, and if she doesn't knock it off, you'll tell her husband.
    Frasier: It's-it's not that easy, you don't know this woman! She doesn't deal with confrontation very well. I once questioned the political correctness of her serving veal. An hour later, we found her locked in the garage with the engine running on her golf cart!
    Roz: (wide-eyed) Whoa, it's MARIS.

    Frasier: I thought Maris was joining us?
    Niles: Oh, no. I'm afraid Maris is having one of her episodes. In the middle of dressing for the evening, she suddenly slumped down on the edge of the bed in her half-slip and sighed. Of course, I knew then and there that dinner was not to be.

    (On Maris not being able to have pets)Niles: She distrusts anything that loves her unconditionally.

    Also love all of the others mentioned in previous posts.
