    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • As presented here, the two-way mirror would be ineffective with Frasier and Roz in a room with the lights on. Two-way mirrors only work when the viewer's room is dark. In other words, as shown, each side would be equally visible to the other.

      • As Frasier and Niles walk from the kitchen musing about a focus group expressing an opinion about Freud, the camera takes such a wide shot that you can actually see the stage lights above the set.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Niles: Frasier, not to appear unsympathetic but, I've had my 'I'm dangerous face' on so long it's starting to hurt.

      • Frasier: (describing his contempt for the idea of a focus group for his show to Niles) I mean can you imagine Sigmund Freud being dragged into a room full of Viennese laymen to hear remarks like "Hate that Oedipal thing but love the penis envy."

      • Manu: All this because you had to know why I do not like you.
        Frasier: Well, you were kind of vague.
        Manu: You want to know why? I'll tell you why. I think you are a smarty-pants. I was too polite to say that before. But then you spied on me, you stalked me, you badgered me, you poured Yoo-Hoo down my Dockers, you crunched my hand, and then, as if all that was not enough, you burned down my newsstand, my livelihood, a gift to me from my beloved uncle, may he rest in peace!
        Frasier: Was that so hard?

      • Martin: Hey, Frasier, how was the focus group?
        Frasier: Fine, I guess.
        Martin: Oh, well, you said yourself they didn't mean anything.
        Frasier: Yes, well, it's one thing to say that. It's another to sit there being personally attacked! One man actually said, "I just don't like him."
        Niles: Only one?
