  • Murder.

    9.6
    In the continuation of the previous episode, Niles finds himself once again being controlled by Maris, while a jealous and pregnant Daphne isn't happy about it. What makes this episode work were so many funny things, but the most important was the fact that Niles got free once again. It is rare that we see Niles act that way, and that's why it's hilarious - therefore the scene at Nervosa where he takes his clothes off because he can't take the pressure anymore was just priceless.



    I loved it when he stood up to Maris - and I also loved every single one of those little jokes on Maris' account (like Maris putting her shoes to have them polished and then realizing that they were stolen). Also, Frasier is very funny when he keeps mentioning that he was punched by a guy that is now dead.moreless
  • MY Favorite Episode

    The best episode ever I love when Fraiser said He got hit by a dead guy and they lower there head and I love when niles takes his clothes off and Roz has his back. Niles is a true Actor he always make me laugh I love when he act a fool he deserves his own show he was the star and eddie his face expression is funny sometime I forget he's a dog. I just found out that Daphne and Roz are really bestfriends in real life. I think that the best. Can we get a reunion please. Your fans deserve itmoreless
  • Niles shows some backbone.

    Niles get dragged into Maris' case after the police find out that the weapon that was used to kill Esteban, was a gift he gave her.



    Maris claims that it was self-defense, and constantly calls Niles from jail, which angers Daphne, and she forces him to sleep on the couch wile they stay at Frasier's.



    Niles ends up having a breakdown for all of the stress, and finally begins to show anger for the predicament that Maris has put him in. Niles showed some real development in this episode like he did with Mel; he showed some back bone toward Maris and told her not to call as much.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When Niles stands up you can see that he is not actually completely undressed because you can see a bit of his tan undies.

    • Frasier suggests that he and Daphne go to his place since the phone is going to ring all night at Niles's.
      Why don't they simply disconnect it?

    • The televised news clip of Frasier stating that "Maris Crane and Niles Crane will soon be executed" is spoken with significantly different inflection than the statement that Frasier is shown delivering in the previous scene.

    • Frasier says that Niles had a breakdown in his senior year because his girlfriend left him for his roommate. However, Niles has indicated that there was so few women before Maris, so few women after Maris, hence there was Maris. The only women were his pen pal Dora from Costa Rica and the little girl who showed him her underpants.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Frasier: Fine! Fine! Turn your anger on me! It's almost as if you've forgotten that not three days ago, I was punched in the face by a man now dead.
      (Martin, Daphne, and Niles turn their heads down out of shame, realizing how they've been acting)
      Frasier: Thank you. (cheerfully) Now, who wants pancakes?

    • Frasier: (coming up on Niles with two aprons from the coffee waiters) Alright Niles, you know what I'm going to do now? I'm going to wrap you up like a big green Christmas present.

    • Niles: (opening his pants) Oh yes, I can breathe now...(to Roz as he continues to step out of his clothes) I don't know how you can stand it.
      Roz: (on the phone) Frasier? Where are you? Well get here and hurry up because Niles is almost (turns and looks) Niles is completely naked!

    • Niles: But Daphne, you can't really blame me for all of this!
      Daphne: The hell I can't! If YOU hadn't had lunch with her then WE wouldn't have been dragged in to this mess and YOU wouldn't be sleeping alone on the couch tonight! But you did, and we were, so you are!
