Daphne: My uncle's a mortician. Lovely man. He's offered to do my make-up for the wedding.
Frasier: I can just hear the whispers now. "Did you see the bride?Very life-like."
Roz: Tell me something. Do I have the word "loser" tattooed across my forehead?
Frasier: No Roz. But there is a rumor about a Tweety Bird on your upper thigh.

Niles: McGurk got me a shady spot on the high hill.
Frasier: You mean..?
Niles: Yes, I'll spend eternity looking down on Maris.
Frasier: Oh, Niles.
Niles: (gleefully) Checkmate!
