    • In the Cheers episode, "I Kid You Not", it is revealed by Lilith that Frasier's mentor is actually named Bennet Ludlow who had a son with Carla, not Professor Tewksbury.

      Frasier: (frustrated) I don't know what he wants!
      Tewksbury: Then why do you keep trying to bury him in psychiatric exercises?
      Frasier: Because that's all I have!
      (Tewksbury gives him a knowing, sad look)
