The number of the cab where Martin delivers the baby is 804, the same as the one in which Alex (Judd Hirsch) delivered a baby on an episode of Taxi.
Under normal circumstances, cigarette smoke will not set off a smoke detector.
Niles puts the pate' behind his ears to get the dog's attention and impress Daphne. This is also what the producers of the show do in order to get Moose, the dog who plays Eddie, to be affectionate with the actors during a scene.
Scene Three Title: UN PEU DE PATÉ DERRIERE LES OREILLES
This translates as "A bit of paté behind the ears" - a trick which Niles finds very useful in attracting a puppy's favor (and Daphne's).
Life at KACL: We learn that KACL features a literary show called "Book Chat" that is hosted by Amber Edwards. No time slot is mentioned.
When Frasier is yelling at Thomas in the booth, the lens on the camera filming Kelsey Grammar reflects the face of someone else in the studio so it's superimposed over the lower right area of the screen.
Daphne appreciates the fact that Niles uses the word 'bumbershoot', as if it is an English term. The word, however, is an Americanism. Because of the Bumbershoot Music Festival it is quite well known around the Seattle area.
When watching Roz and her date, Niles uses the word "Wow" when describing him, but he wonders if that means anything. Frasier sarcastically replies that "it means you're a gay man! Your life with Maris is a big charade and you should have come out of the closet YEARS ago!"
Interestingly, David Hyde Pierce has since come out of the closet.
Martin mentions that "last Sunday was my birthday." Based on information in "The Gift Horse," this means Martin turned 61 the previous Sunday.
Frasier and Roz are unusually affectionate in this episode. When they meet at Café Nervosa they exchange kisses on the cheek and Frasier refers to her as "Roz, honey".
Frasier states that he does not like tassels in this episode, but in the Cheers episode, "And God Created the Woodman", he says that he loves tassels.
Life at KACL: This episode marks a bit of a break from the continuity established throughout the first season. Upon seeing Gil Chesterton, Frasier comments that Gil is "his cue to leave," indicating that Gil's show is to follow his, not The Gonzo Sports Show. This also marks the second mention of Bonnie Weems's car show and we learn that, thanks to Gil, she now occupies the Midnight to 4AM slot.
For this episode, dead-bolts have been newly added to the hall doors to both Frasier's and Roz's studios in order to accommodate the scene where Frasier barricades himself in the studio. Ironically, when Frasier locks these doors, he never touches the newly-installed dead-bolts, but merely wiggles the door handles as if locking them.
Of added interest is the fact that the end-credits scene must have been shot prior to the episode as the dead-bolts have not yet been installed.
Gil pronounces the German for Black Forest Gateaux as "Schwarzwaldkirschtöten"--literally, "Kill Black Forest Cherry!" (The correct name is Schwarzwaldkirschtorte).
In previous episodes in season 1, it is Bulldog who has the time slot following Frasier at work. It would be unusual for a talk radio station to have different schedules on different weekdays. So unless the weekly lineup has changed over the season, this seems peculiar.
During the scene where Frasier and Niles begin to write in Frasier's apartment, it is clearly visible when the shot cuts to Niles that the screen to his laptop isn't on while he is supposed to be typing.
It seems unusual that Frasier was holding Eddie while he was sitting in the front seat because when it comes to Eddie Frasier does not care to hold or pet him and he usually tells Eddie to get down or shoos him off.
They are afraid to re-enter the US from Canada without passports, but how were they able to get OUT of the US in the first place?
When Frasier first asked Niles to join Frasier and Martin on their trip, Niles refused telling Frasier that as his brother, Frasier is entitled to bone marrow and one kidney, but not a Winnebago trip. However, in "Someone to Watch Over Me," Frasier's bodyguard tells him she needs a list of family members who are willing to donate organs should anything happen to Frasier at the awards ceremony. Niles then tells Frasier he has abnormally small kidneys, indicating he would not be willing to give one to Frasier.
Carrie, the sales girl, asks Frasier if Bulldog is gay because he is "overcompensating". Bulldog's portrayer, Dan Butler, is openly gay although his character on the show definitely isn't!
