    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Life at KACL: We learn that KACL features a literary show called "Book Chat" that is hosted by Amber Edwards. No time slot is mentioned.

      • When Frasier is yelling at Thomas in the booth, the lens on the camera filming Kelsey Grammar reflects the face of someone else in the studio so it's superimposed over the lower right area of the screen.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Thomas J Fallow is giving a radio interview about his book, while Frasier listens outside the door.


        Amber: What was your inspiration for this poignant love story?


        Frasier: Quiet, quiet, it's his last chance.


        Thomas J Fallow: Well Amber it was actually given to me - by God.


        Frasier: By God? Do you believe this man's grandiosity? I'm God, and he knows it.

      • Frasier: He used to drop into a neighborhood bar I frequented back in Boston. He's a bit pretentious though, he stuck out like a sore thumb.

      • Niles: Maris is reading Slow Tango in South Seattle. I think it's put thoughts in her head. This morning I found her cooing over the college student who skims the koi pond.
        Martin: I wouldn't concern myself.
        Niles: Do you think it's just innocent flirting?
        Martin: No, I just wouldn't concern myself.

    • NOTES (0)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Niles: You'll be relieved to know that while Frasier was getting his "Rachmaninoffs," I was actually studying music.

        Niles' play on words alludes to Sergei Rachmaninoff, a Russian pianist and composer who emigrated to the United States.

      • The title is an obvious reference to Robert James Waller's romantic novel, Slow Waltz in Cedar Bend.
