  • Trivia

    • When Roz and Frasier are in the kitchen and she has a glass of Glenfarclas, the levels in the glass go up and down without Roz taking a sip or refilling her glass.

    • Frasier had good reason to gasp when Roz dumped an 8-oz tumbler of 25 year-old Glenfarclas into the sink. At roughly $150 for a 26-oz bottle, she threw away almost $50 worth.

    • The Prodigal Son

      When Niles comes to Frasier's apartment with Eddie, he says, 'the prodigal pup returns'. This references the biblical story of the prodigal son, where a son who has left his father's house in rude fashion returns home contrite.

    • (Niles has brought a peace offering to Martin after leaving Eddie in a kennel)
      Niles: Dad, it's from Smoky Mountain Farms -- five different meats in one big box.
      Martin: Not the Slaughterhouse Five...

      Slaughterhouse-Five, of course is the 1969 novel by Kurt Vonnegut. This reference also explains the title card, "With Apologies To Mr. Vonnegut".
