  • Season 1 Episode 5: Here's Looking at You

  • Niles claims that Aunt Patrice and Maris love to trot out this so-called "G-Speak" at parties, and yet every time Aunt Patrice visits, Maris is invariably bed-ridden. It seems inplausible that Maris would cook up a game with a person for whom she has so evident a dislike-and if Maris inevitably takes ill when her aunt visits, when would they have a chance to attend a party together? Patrice herself said that to that day, she had no idea how tall Maris was.

  • Season 1 Episode 4: I Hate Frasier Crane

  • Martin asked if the boys still say a prayer before they eat, but the three of them have eaten together before, and did not pray, as is evidenced in "Dinner At Eight".

  • Season 1 Episode 3: Dinner at Eight

  • While they are eating at the restaurant the potato on Frasier's plate is there and the next scene it is gone.

  • Each episode has a different beginning title having to do with the Skyline of Seattle. This episode features lights turning on in the surrounding buildings near the Space Needle.

  • When Niles meets Daphne she is folding a black shirt. The position of the shirt changes from being already folded in her hand to being held by the collar and back from shot to shot.

  • When Niles, Frasier and Martin entered the Timber Mill, Niles remarked that the smell of charred meat in the Timber Mill triggered a scent memory for him. He then realized it reminded him of Maris in her home tanning bed. However, in "Voyage of the Damned" we learn that Maris cannot be exposed to even a few minutes of sunlight or she will "sear like an ahi tuna." If Maris cannot be exposed to even a few minutes of UV rays, how can she use a home tanning bed?

  • This episode features the first mention of Le Cigar Volante, an upscale restaurant that becomes one of Frasier and Niles's regular haunts.

  • In this episode Niles refers to his housekeeper "Mary." In later episodes she becomes Marta and an actul character.

  • Season 1 Episode 2: Space Quest

  • At the end of this episode (which is supposed to take place the day after the pilot according to Daphne), Frasier says that this is the first time that Martin suggests to have drink with him. However, the events in "You can go home again" are supposed to occur before this episode. It's possible however, that Frasier says that, because this time, he is alone with Martin or because this is the first time Martin suggests the beer since he moved in with his son.

  • Each episode has a different beginning title having to do with the Skyline of Seattle. This episode features an elevator going up the Space Needle.

  • Frasier makes a reference to his early suicide attempt, which was seen in the Cheers episode "The Girl in the Plastic Bubble (2)."

  • This is 1 of only 2 episodes to feature a title card before the end credits.

  • About halfway through the show, Frasier is sitting on the couch with a book. Just after he says to Daphne, "I'm in the middle of a very exciting chapter", there is a wide shot and you can clearly see the boom microphone drop into the shot from just above the bathroom door.

  • Life at KACL

    This episode marks the first appearance of Bulldog. We also learn that KACL has more than one studio, as Bulldog can't use Studio C for his show. This also establishes the pattern that KACL's daily schedule features Frasier's show followed by the Gonzo Sports Show.

  • Frasier needs a new egg timer. His 3-minute conversation with Martin only takes 2 minutes (and that includes approximately 5 seconds of false starts).

  • As Frasier and Martin are exiting the kitchen, just after Martin says, "Well, I hope it is only three minutes 'cause my program's comin' on", the shadow of a boom mike is visible over the kitchen door.

  • Season 1 Episode 1: The Good Son

  • Each episode has a different beginning title to do with the Skyline of Seattle. This episode features a blinking red light on top of the Space Needle.

  • The setup for Frasier would be an almost exact reversal of the original setup for Cheers. In Cheers you have the sophisticated, intellectual (Diane Chambers) joining a group of middle to lower class, uneducated working class people and what a tough time she has fitting in and they have accepting her. In Fraiser you have the working class common man (Martin Crane) joining a group of intellectuals (Frasier and Niles) and attempting to get along.

  • In the scene which Daphne first comes to the apartment, the beer can and remote control on Martin's side table change positions between shots.

  • KACL, the radio station where Frasier works, owes its name to the initials of the three producers and writers of the show: David Angell, Peter Casey and David Lee.
