    • Frasier: You know the expression, "Living well is the best revenge?"
      Niles: Wonderful expression. I just don't know how true it is, you don't see it turning up in a lot of opera plots. "Ludwig, maddened by the poisoning of his entire family, wreaked vengeance on Gunther in the third act by living well."

    • Niles: I was severely scarred by those experiences!
      Danny: Hey, wait a minute. I can't defend everything I did back in junior high. I mean who can? But let's face it: when you show up at school wearing a tweed blazer with elbow patches, and carrying a valise. I mean...I think the guilt here is 50/50.

    • Martin: (to Frasier and Niles) Do you two realize what a couple of delicate doilies you are?

    • Frasier: (taking the phone from Niles) Maris, Maris, Niles is busy right now. Never mind what I'm wearing!
