Season 7 Episode 12


Aired Thursday 9:00 PM Jan 06, 2000 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • The scene at the first Little Red Cabin ran in real time, which means that the couple driving the look-alike motor home spent less than two minutes in the restaurant. Frasier, Niles and Martin were just reading menus when the couple arrived, and had not even been served when the couple left.

    • In "A Tsar Is Born" when Martin shows Frasier and Niles a picture of the motor home he is buying, it is a Class C (basically, living quarters built onto a van with a sleeping compartment resting on top of the cab). In this episode, "RDWRER" is a class A motor home, much larger, entirely self-contained and certainly more expensive.

    • In this episode, they claim to have crossed time zones once they cross the border between Washington and Idaho. However, the entire panhandle of Idaho, including the whole border with Washington, is in the Pacific time zone.

      Comment: Frasier, Niles and Martin are travelling southeast on The Old Oregon Trail (I-84) to Sun Valley, located in south-central Idaho. At one point Niles comments that he's calling from a "Little Red Cabin" in Baker City, Oregon. In other words, they cross into Idaho at the Oregon border, which would put them in the Mountain Time Zone.

  • Quotes

    • Martin: You're not good with big cars, Niles. Remember when I tried to teach you to drive my LeSabre? You kept panicking and pulling on the emergency brake.
      Niles: Well, it's a good thing I did. Those mailboxes weren't even slowing me down!

    • Frasier: Of course! Auld Lyng Wine!

  • Notes

    • International Episode Titles:
      Czech Republic: Šťastný Nový Rok (Happy New Year)

    • Kelsey Grammer had previously worked with Rebecca Schull on an episode of Wings, another Grub Street production. Both shows were the brainchild of Angell, Casey, and Lee.

  • Allusions

    • (Martin has been watching an Austin Powers video in the back of the Winnebago)
      Frasier: Y'know, dad -- you do realize that the Austin Powers craze is completely over.

      Frasier's prediction proved untrue. Two years after this show aired, Austin Powers in Goldmember proved to be the most successful of all three Austin Powers movies at the boxoffice.

    • "RDWRER" (Road Warrior) is taken from the 1981 Mel Gibson flick "Mad Max 2", aka "Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior".
