By mentioning Phil's belief in aliens on the air Frasier actually does violate his professional ethics by revealing a doctor-patient confidence. He could actually lose his license to practice medicine if Phil were the vindictive type. This is odd considering Frasier's hesitation in only revealing this news to Niles, a fellow MD, earlier in the episode.
Frasier is convinced, that Phil's belief has become public knowledge. Although this isn't correct, it surely explains his behavior.
Life at KACL: This episode sticks to the established continuity as Bulldog prepares to do his show immediately after Frasier's.
This episode makes clear that Frasier is a Democrat as he and Niles discuss more funding for the arts, environmental causes and education, and ridiculing Patterson's opponent's economic plan, by saying that everyone will be homeless if it is implemmented.
Patterson: Together, we can live the dream.
Frasier: Phil Patterson... (with a pained expression on his face) the sane choice.
This episode is dedicated to the memory of Robert Crosby (1944-1994), who was a sound mixer on Frasier.
Scene One Title: ANDY WARHOL SAID IT BEST
This title refers to the statement made by Warhol in 1968 and reiterated in 1979 that "In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes". In this instance, it refers, of course, to Martin's brief period of celebrity as a TV supporter of congressional candidate Holden Thorpe.
Scene Six Title: THE FAULT LIES NOT IN OUR STARS, BUT IN OURSELVES
This title borrows a line from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar (spoken by Cassius): "The fault, dear Brutus, lies not in our stars, but in ourselves".
Scene Four Title: Citizen Crane
This, of course, parodies the 1941 Orson Welles classic Citizen Kane.
Episode Title: The Candidate
The episode title shares the same name as the 1972 film The Candidate.
