When Niles visits Harry in his bar in Manchester, you can see waitresses in the background taking drinks to tables. In British pubs you have to go to the bar to buy your drinks - you will only find waitresses in restaurants.
At Chez Henri, Niles points out how romantic it is with the candlelight and the romantic music. However, although there is a candle on the table, the lights are on full brightness, and there is no music playing.
It's a bit odd that Harry and Martin have to meet for the first time here; surely they would have met each other at Daphne's almost wedding? Then again, maybe Harry was drunk...
It seems odd that Frasier was able to pass for Roger at Roz's family gathering. Was her mother not there, who had met Frasier a few years before when they tried to fix her up with Martin? Also, after nine years at Frasier's side it seems unlikely Roz would not have shared a picture of two of the reasonably famous Seattle celebrity she works with.
Sully: I've been going around on that one like the horses on the Looff.
The Looff Carrousel began operation on July 18, 1909, in Spokane's Natatorium Park. Although the park closed its doors in 1967, the carrousel has remained and is still in daily operation with all of its original figures.
Carla: Remember when we took Frasier on that snipe hunt?
She refers to the season 3 episode 'The Heart Is A Lonely Snipe Hunter' of Cheers.
L'Espalier, the restaurant Niles has reservations for, is a real place in Boston, as is one of the most expensive and well-regarded restaurants in the country. This was one of the few occasions that a real restaurant name was used.
Nitpick: Although it was impossible for this episode to feature the set of Cheers, for both legal and practical reasons, the explanation given of why the party wasn't being held at Cheers - that Sam was using it for a Red Sox reunion - leaves a lot to be desired. Sam or Cliff simply could have had their parties another night.
Norm explains why Vera won't be attending the party, and Frasier tells Niles that Vera is Norm's "much-storied" wife. It is highly appropriate that Niles be told about Vera, as Maris, Niles's first wife, who was never seen throughout the series, was based on Vera, who was never seen throughout the run of Cheers.
Interesting trivial bit of continuity concerning Cliff as he explains why his Mother is not at his party. Apparently she went to Bosnia, not Boston. Wonder if she said hello to Cliff's former mail-order bride, whom we find out about in The One Where Woody Shows Up as Woody mentions how she became homesick and returned to her native land, adding wisfully, "Man that Bosnia must be a beautiful place?"
Norm, Carla, Cliff, and Paul had all heard Frasier talk about his dad on "Cheers". Back then, Frasier said that his dad was a dead research scientist. The Cheers gang never mentions this. However, when Sam came back, he did mention it. Woody and Diane had never spoken of it in their returns either..
When Cam admits Frasier to his apartment, we see on his door that he lives in 2001, as you would expect, given that he lives directly above Frasier who is in 1901. In Season 7's 'The Fight Before Christmas', however, it is said that Cam lives in apartment 2000.
Frasier and Niles break into their childhood home to retrieve the time capsule they left underneath the floor. They break in by coming in through a window, which was the same way they used to go out after curfew when they were young. Upon breaking in, Niles congratulates Frasier and tells him, "You've still got it." Frasier replies that it is "just like riding a bicycle."
That is an odd thing for Frasier to say because we learned in the next season's episode 'Fraternal Schwinns' that Niles and Frasier never learned how to ride bicycles when they were young. In that episode, Frasier even remarks to Daphne that people are always saying "it's just like riding a bike" in conversation, "but I only understand it in theory."
This is presented as Frasier's first visit to Niles' bookstore, and therefore his first exposure to Lisa, but earlier in the season, the following exchange occurs between Frasier and Martin as they are deciding which ten women they would take to "love island":
Frasier: I'll tell you who makes my list... that dark-haired temptress that works at the bookstore.
Martin: (with a knowing grin) Lisa.
That's more than a little coincidental.
Roz said that Suzanne made the pie, crust and meringue. But, when Frasier and Martin go to eat the pie, there is no meringue on it
Blaine thanks Frasier for paying in cash because he would "rather see the money go to poor people than to uncle sam". However, taxes are not taken out of money donated to charities in any form.
It's strange that Frasier thought he could get away with asking his father the name of the woman he dated a couple of years earlier ("Whine Club," Season 7). The woman's late husband and Marty had been close. They went to the police academy together, he lent Marty money to buy his first car, he named his son after Marty, and, as Frasier pointed out, he introduced Frasier's parents. Additionally, the surname was unusual -- Wojadubakowski. It's a good name to test Marty's speaking ability after drinking all that wine and beer, but thinking that Marty could be inebriated enough to believe that Frasier couldn't remember a name he had probably known most of his life defies logic.
Right after Niles proposes to Daphne, Frasier tackles a man at the top of the stairs. When they land, you can see the mat they jump onto to not get hurt.
The tune that Niles whistles as his signals to Eddie during his attempt to take the Daphne Lane street sign is Mozart's Symphony No. 40 in G Minor.
