  • Season 2 Episode 19: Someone to Watch Over Me

  • Frasier's bodyguard told him she would need a list of family members who were willing to donate organs should anything happen to Frasier at the awards ceremony. Niles then told Frasier he had abnormally small kidneys, indicating he would not be willing to give one to Frasier. However, in "Travels with Martin," Niles told Frasier that as his brother, Frasier was entitled to one kidney.

  • Life at KACL: This episode follows established continuity as Bulldog prepares to do his show while Frasier is on the air. Interestingly enough Frasier's first and only Seabee win does not occur within the episode proper but is framed by the final credits as Frasier and Roz accept their awards while Roz is still trying to hide her nose blemish.

  • Season 2 Episode 18: The Club

  • Niles embarrasses Frasier by insinuating alcoholism and mentions he acquired knowledge of wine from the bar maid with whom he "shacked up", meaning Diane Chambers.

  • During the ending credits when Eddie is begging, the shadow of a waving arm can be seen on the couch next to Frasier. Assumedly, this is the arm of Eddie's trainer signaling him to do the trick.

  • Niles mentions Frasier's suicide attempt, which happened in the Cheers episode 'The Girl in the Plastic Bubble (2)'.

  • In the scene where Martin is teaching Eddie a trick in the kitchen, it is quite obvious that the stove island has been removed. This is probably due to the fact that they had to get Frasier, Martin and Eddie all in the same shot and from the angle they were shooting, you couldn't have seen Eddie very well with the island in the way.

  • Season 2 Episode 17: Daphne's Room

  • When Daphne yells at Eddie for drinking water from the toilet and Frasier comes out apologizing and they both scream you can see that Eddie is not at the toilet anymore but it would be unlikely that he just ran off that quickly.

  • In this episode we learn that Daphne has to take a "prescription" pill before bedtime. In Season Four's "Daphne Hates Sherry", we learn that they are for a thyroid condition.

  • Although Frasier promises, Daphne's room never does get redecorated (apparently the car was enough). We can see this in Season Three's "Come Lie With Me", wherein Daphne's room still has the same Burnt Sienna walls and blonde furniture and woodwork. The only change is that the bed has been moved in front of the window.

  • Daphne closes both her closet and room doors before entering the shower. Yet, when Frasier is discovered and runs out moments later, the door to the hall is completely open.

  • This episode contains the first bit of trivia that Maris comes from a Roman Catholic background. Niles mentions that she nixed the idea of a French-themed party by reminding him that a branch of her family were slaughtered by the Huguenots; French Protestants, who engaged in armed conflict with the majority Roman Catholics in the 150 years after the Protestant Reformation began.

  • Season 2 Episode 16: The Show Where Sam Shows Up

  • This episode also corrects a continuity error from Cheers in Frasier. On Cheers, Frasier said his father was dead and was a research scientist. When Sam finds out the truth about Martin--he's a cop, and of course alive, it is revealed that Frasier and Martin had had a big argument over the phone just before Frasier told Sam about his home life. When Martin asks why Frasier said he was a scientist, Frasier replies, "What difference does it make? You were dead!"

  • This episode also tells what became of the Cheers gang. The plumber got rich and dumped Rebecca. She's back at the bar. Norm is still at the bar (no surprise there). Woody and Kelly had a smart baby boy. Cliff doesn't hang around the bar much, because he read an article about flesh-eating bacteria and hasn't left his mother's house since.

  • Sam also coyly remarks that Niles resembled Frasier when Frasier first appeared at Cheers. One of the reasons David Hyde Pierce was hired was because of his striking resemblance to a young Kelsey Grammer on Cheers.

  • Sam confesses his lie to Frasier by saying that no ballplayer comes to Seattle because of the Mariners - a reference to how poorly they have played throughout their history. The episode aired February, 1995. Later that year, the Mariners would clinch their franchise's first division title.

  • At the end of the episode, after Sam mentions stewardesses he claps his hands, and his seat belt (which was caught on something) moves across his chest to the regular position. Cut to a wide shot of the car and Sam's seat belt is back to the position it was in before.

  • Season 2 Episode 15: You Scratch My Book...

  • Goof: After Roz gets her book signed Frasier says that he wants to pay for the book and get out of there, but when Frasier meets Dr. Honey Snow Roz gets annoyed and leaves, without paying for the book.

  • Season 2 Episode 14: Fool Me Once, Shame on Yo...

  • The briefcase carried by the priest which Frasier and Niles mistake for Frasier's, is in fact the same one Kelsey Grammer normally uses. You can tell by a pattern of stains on the side near the top. It's understandable that they would use the same one, of course, since it would be of no practical value to provide an exact duplicate for this brief scene.

  • When Daphne's at KACL, she sits down and picks up the headphones and uses them but in the next shot, a fraction of a second later, the headphones are on the table.

  • Season 2 Episode 12: Roz in the Doghouse

  • When Niles buys a pair of shoes for Martin, they have tassels and both Frasier and Niles like the shoes; but in "My Coffee with Niles", when Niles asks Frasier what he thinks of the new shoes he bought, Frasier says he isn't a tassel guy and then so does Niles.
