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.
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.
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.
Including Roz and Kari, there are at least six women at the awards dinner wearing red dresses.
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.
Frasier suggests the drinking song, Libiamo Brindisi from La Traviata. Niles disagrees, saying that it is from Rigoletto. Frasier was correct.
In the episode, Frasier hates ice fishing and doesn't know much about it, but in the Cheers episode "Fools and Their Money", Frasier goes ice fishing in Nova Scotia to calm his nerves about Diane--he even goes back!
The masts on the Clipper Ship model Niles and Martin are building, are made of the same plastic as the rest of the ship and highly detailed. The wooden "mast" -- broken by Niles as a gag -- is nothing more than a wooden dowel.
It is odd that when Frasier said "zapatos" (the Spanish word for "shoes") when Niles accused Gunnar of sleeping with Maris, he thought it meant "wife". But when Marta said the word "zapatos" only minutes later translating for Gunnar, Frasier immediately knew the word's actual meaning.
When the vase is broken during the swordfight, notice the way it has been damaged. When Niles comes back down the stairs, the damage to the vase is different.
In the credits, Niles gives Maris a rose when she is in the tank, but a few episodes earlier, Niles had a fight with Maris and he said he couldn't buy her roses because she was allergic.
In this episode, Frasier says he doesn't speak German, and they have to converse with the fencing instructor in Spanish, with Maris's housekeeper translating. However, Frasier was able to speak German in both an episode of Cheers, and a later episode of Frasier.
Life at KACL: Tom Durant, last scene in The Matchmaker is still the station manager at KACL as of this episode, which makes him the second longest tenured character to hold that position, behind only Kenny Daley.
