    7.5
    As someone whose nose is probably a little bigger than average I was a little put off by this episode. It was a fairly funny episode however, although a bit below Frasier standards, and I think part of that can be attributed to the fact that it focused so much on the Roz character. I thought all of the humor with the noses was forced though. As I mentioned, maybe I am not the best person to judge this, but I do not think enough was said that the entire cast would burst into the laughter. The scenes were just not that funny here and the story was very thin. Still a good episode, but when you watch an episode of Frasier you expect a bit more than this.moreless
  • One of the best episodes

    In all of Frasier's 264 episodes, this one ranks in my top ten. The sheer absurdity of it and the cast's reaction to such a hilarious physical deformity really humbles the show. It demonstrates that no matter the sophistication and wittiness of the writing, the writers aren't afraid to play around with an episode that is just plain silly. I was nearly crying because I was laughing so hard by the end of this 22-minute romp through a ball pit of misconstrued farce. It's easy to understand why the cast was in stitches and they used it in the final edit. This is truly a classic, although not a typical episode of Frasier.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • It is apparently 5 years since Daphne moved in with the Cranes and started working for them. She moves in in September 1993. It is May 1998 in this episode--a few months short of 5 years.

      It is of additional interest to note that Roz discovered she was pregnant last Halloween and if this is supposed to be Daphne's anniversary (September), Roz should have given birth by now. It seems that broadcast dates can't be applied to "Frasier time" too rigorously.

    • After Frasier hangs up on Marco, how does he know the phone number of the Garretts (the parents of Rick, the father of Roz' baby)?

  • QUOTES (7)

    • (trying to convince Frasier to come to the dog show)
      Niles: I've never missed the Kennel Club Show. If I don't go this year, people will think I've let Maris and Shenkman intimidate me. I want to prove that I'm strong and independant...and I can't do that alone.

    • Roz: Now I'm supposed to put up with in-laws and I don't even have a husband?! That's like posing nude for your art teacher and still flunking the course. (Notices Frasier's shocked look) Shut up! I needed the credits!

    • Mrs. Garrett: Do you mind if I ask? Is this homemade or store-bought?
      Mr. Garrett: Ay, Honey, don't ask that. (to Frasier) Pardon my wife. Sometimes she gets a little nosy.
      (Frasier shows signs of wanting to laugh)
      Mrs. Garrett: Me Nosy? You're the nosy one in the family.
      (Frasier's need to laugh grows)
      Mr. Garrett: Anyone who knows you knows you're nosy.
      Mrs. Garrett: Anyone who knows you knows you're nosier.
      (Frasier walks away in to the kitchen)
      Martin: (knowing Frasier wants to laugh, and why) Something wrong Fras?
      (Frasier burst into laughter)

    • (Frasier has just given Daphne earrings he bought at the drug store)
      Daphne: Oh my God, sapphires!
      Frasier: Well actually Daphne...
      Daphne: (interrupting) Oh Dr. Crane, these must have cost a fortune.
      Frasier: Well, eh...
      Daphne: You know my friend Moni got a diamond bracelet from her boss, but she worked for him for ten years. And she was sleeping with him. And now... I've got sapphires, and I didn't even have to sleep with you, although now that I've got the sapphires... Oh God, what am I saying. I'm giddy. Is it rude if I go and try these on... (running off to her room) I don't care I have to see what the look like. I've never had real jewelry, never. I'm speechless.
      Frasier: Dear God. She believes they're genuine sapphires.
      Martin: Gee, you think!

    • Steve: Mmmm! What's that I smell?
      Martin: Probably Japan.

    • (Talking about meeting Rick's parents)
      Roz: Now I know all the wonderful qualities my baby will have. A sunny disposition, a great sense of humor...a nose like an ANT-EATER!

    • Paula: Oh, Steve and I went to that Kennel Club a year back. We love dogs. We have two giant Schnauzers.
