    • (Talking about the automobile repair class)
      Roz: Wow, it sounds like you guys should just quit.
      Frasier: If only we could, Roz. It's just that dad and Daphne are so proud of us, we can't let them down. They already bought mahogany frames so they can frame our certificates of completion.
      Roz: So complete it! I mean, it doesn't mean you have to ace it. Just nod your head a few times and you're home free.
      Niles: Are you suggesting we..... coast?
      Frasier: We have never walked the back alleys of underachievement before!
      Niles: Dare we?
      (They look at each other, pause and then close their books)
      Niles: Oooh, I just got a chill!

    • Frasier: Please, please don't throw us out!
      Niles: We'll shut up, we promise!
      Randy: You promised that four times tonight. Sorry, you're gone.
      Frasier: But what are we gonna tell our dad?
      Niles: And my girlfriend?
      Randy: Maybe you should have thought of that before you started goofing off.
