After Daphne's friends leave, Martin and Daphne go into the kitchen. Look closely and you'll see is that one second the jersey is undone, and the next second all the buttons are done up.
Goof: Frasier claims Niles would never be seen in anything called a Hatchback, however Niles mentions having to drive one in the episode 'High Crane Drifter', though he had the same disdain for it then, too.
In the final scene, Frasier arrives at Niles' fresh from his date and asks how it went with Maris. Niles says that he returned the gifts (plural). Since Frasier wore the cufflinks on his date, the most Niles could have returned was the pocket watch.
Here it is established that Frasier and Niles knew Marie as a child; therefore, they would have known Duke as well. But they met Duke for the first time in "Duke's, We Hardly Knew Ye". So how could they have met Duke and Marie when they were children?
when Niles sees Frasier's head in the oven he assumes Frasier is trying to kill him self however Frasier states this is impossible because its an "electric oven" however the oven they have is clearly a gas oven and not electric.
Frasier says his bad luck comes every 5 years. It is currently 1998. 5 years before that is 1993, when he says Lilith left him. She left him in 1992. Frasier then says that 5 years before that Diane left him. This would put Diane leaving him at the altar in 1988, but she jilted him in 1985.
The closing credits play to an accompaniment of the usual theme song 'Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs', only this time sung in Spanish by Kenny O'Brien.
This marks the only time when the theme song is not sung by Kelsey Grammer.
Frasier: (Rallying the on-air talent to Kenny's defense) ...and you, Tooty. Who was it that just doubled the Story Time puppet budget?
It's a little strange that Tooty would use puppets on a radio program -- although it's possible if she has kids in the studio. Edgar Bergen was often kidded about being a ventriloquist on radio, although with a live audience, it made sense.
After Frasier makes his announcement, Roz tells him that Kenny cut him off the air. However, the ON THE AIR sign was still on.
Tom McGowan, introduced in this episode in the role of Kenny Daly, also appeared in the 1993 film Sleepless In Seattle with David Hyde Pierce (though they had no scenes together).
In this episode Niles and Frasier are competing for the same woman and Niles says 'I saw her first'. However Frasier told Roz he met her before Martin introduces her to Niles, so Frasier saw her first not niles.
During the week this episode aired, Jane Leeves also appeared as Marla Penny in the final episode of Seinfeld.
It is apparently 5 years since Daphne moved in with the Cranes and started working for them. She moves in in September 1993. It is May 1998 in this episode--a few months short of 5 years.
It is of additional interest to note that Roz discovered she was pregnant last Halloween and if this is supposed to be Daphne's anniversary (September), Roz should have given birth by now. It seems that broadcast dates can't be applied to "Frasier time" too rigorously.
After Frasier hangs up on Marco, how does he know the phone number of the Garretts (the parents of Rick, the father of Roz' baby)?
The Title Card in this episode, "Don Juan in Hell", will later be used as the episode title for the hour-long Season 9 Premiere.
In this episode we learn that Bulldog was raised and educated as a Roman Catholic as Frasier introduces his boyhood priest and confessor.
(Daphne and Martin are arriving at the Seabee Awards dinner and Frasier compliments Martin on how good he looks)
Martin: Well, thanks -- though I guess any guy looks good in a monkey suit.
Frasier: Oh, yeah.
Daphne: On the drive over I started musing on why they call it a monkey suit...
Actually, Martin isn't wearing a "monkey suit". A "monkey suit" refers to a tuxedo with tails (the back split and extending down in two curving flaps to the back of the knees). If Martin had been wearing a tuxedo with tails (commonly just called "tails"), Daphne wouldn't have had to wonder about the origin of the term.
It seems odd there would be a phone on Frasier's desk at home only ten feet away from his cordless phone. No doubt it was just put there to speed up the joke when he calls his Aunt and she hangs up on him.
Martin's brother is present in this episode, but Martin previously stated he did not have a brother in "Author, Author".
This episode shares several similarities with the 1st season episode "The Show Where Lilith Comes Back". These similarities include:
- A Crane brother sleeping with Lilith.
- Lilith ordering poached eggs from room service and having the order made incorrectly.
- The respective Crane brother frantically listing all the reasons why sleeping with Lilith was a mistake after she said "It's a mistake" referring to her eggs
- The respective Crane brother comforting Lilith in the mirror after her emotional breakdown. Both Frasier and Niles start off saying "Do you know what I see? I see a beautiful woman..."
