    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Bebe says, "There's an audience out there waiting for two people to ride in on a donkey..." The animal they ride in on, however, is a mule, not a donkey. A mule is a cross between a horse and a donkey. Although the smaller donkey would be the traditional mount for someone wearing a sombrero, it would have a difficult time carrying both Bebe and Frasier.

      • In this episode, Martin's eyesight has deteriorated to the point where he can't even tell the difference between a coffee cup and a cream server at the Café Nervosa . As a result, he buys glasses. In the following episode (To Thine Old Self Be True) there are several scenes of Martin comfortably reading both the newspaper and the "Seattle SEX-PRESS" without glasses.

      • Bebe: I just need to find a way to throw a scare into them.
        Niles: Have you tried turning into a bat?
        Bebe: I would, love, but most grown men don't share your fear of tiny creatures!

      • (Bebe pulls out a cigarette)
        Bebe: (to Frasier) May I?
        Frasier: (motions to the balcony) On the balcony, if you don't mind.
        Bebe: Mind? I don't want a single puff tearing up the baby blues of TV's newest sensation. By this time next week...
        Niles: You heard him. If you're going to blow smoke, do it on the balcony.

      • (Frasier tells Daphne that Bebe is coming over)
        Daphne: I hope she's not staying for lunch. I'm afraid we're fresh out of live mice.

      • (Niles is berating Frasier for agreeing to appear on a mindless morning talk show)
        Niles: You have been an applause junkie ever since you first set foot on a grammar school stage.
        Frasier: (enraged) I was drawn to the theater because of it's discipline and collaborative spirit!
        Niles: Oh, please. In your sixth-grade production of Oklahoma you took so many curtain calls, Mrs. Van Raaphorst had to lasso you and pull you from the stage.

        Frasier: That woman never understood me or the role of farmer number three!

      • Frasier: Bob and Bethany, 'car chat', please! I mean how can anyone drone on for three hours about a subject that nobody even understands?
        Roz: Yeah! We were there first!
