    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • This isn't the first time we've heard Frasier sing as Yum-Yum in "The Mikado." He also sang it in the Cheers episode, "Simon Says", with a marriage counselor played by John Cleese.

      • The poster of Father Mike, who was fired early in "She's the Boss" is still visible in the hall outside of Frasier's studio.

      • About half-way through the episode when Frasier and Kate are arguing in the hallway of KACL, just as Kate says, "You have no sense of humor", the shadow of a microphone is clearly visible on the wall above her head.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Martin: We played jokes like this all the time when I was on the force. The day they replaced my bulletproof vest with a big lacy bra, I knew I was one of the guys.
        Frasier: Thank you, Dad. That also clears up a question that's troubled me for years concerning the night you were shot!

      • Bulldog: Why don't you take your two IQ points, rub them together, see if you can start a fire? (hangs up)

      • Bulldog: You're in the doghouse?
        Caller: Hey, am I on?
        Bulldog: Yeah, take as long as you want.
        (Bulldog hangs up and goes to the next call)

      • Frasier: People still ask to see my Yum Yum.

      • Bulldog: (faking a funny Australian accent) Well mate it's like the Sheila said. I'm working with a real yobbo, he goes on and on about things nobody gives a billabong about just to show off how smart he is.
        Frasier: Well, you have my sympathy; there is nothing more irratating than pointless and pretentious erudition.

      • Kate: (talking to Frasier) You told half of Seattle that you are full to the brim with girlish glee.

      • Frasier: Get ready for a Budweiser geyser!

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Niles: (referring to KACL) ...a station whose current motto is "Yakety-yak, we talk back".

        Borrows from the famous Coasters hit, "Yakety-yak (don't talk back)".

      • Scene Four Title: THE NOSE KNOWS

        This borrows from the old radio thriller, The Shadow starring Orson Welles, whose catch phrase was "The Shadow Knows".

      • Episode Title: Leapin' Lizards

        The title is comic strip character Annie's favorite exclamation.
