  • Season 8 Episode 9: Frasier's Edge

  • In this episode we learn that Gil Chesterton's never seen (and thought by many in the show to be non-existent)wife Deb is a member of the National Guard.

  • In the Cheers episode, "I Kid You Not", it is revealed by Lilith that Frasier's mentor is actually named Bennet Ludlow who had a son with Carla, not Professor Tewksbury.

  • Season 8 Episode 8: Mary Christmas

  • Goof: Dr Mary claims that one of the first floats is a gift from Seattle's sister city Managua, Nicaragua. However Seattle and Managua are not sister cities.

  • Roz mentions to Dr. Mary that she listens to her show on KAZW all the time, but in Season Seven's "Something About Dr. Mary", Mary says that she just got her own show at KPXY.

  • Season 8 Episode 7: The New Friend

  • When Roz and Frasier are in the kitchen and she has a glass of Glenfarclas, the levels in the glass go up and down without Roz taking a sip or refilling her glass.

  • Frasier had good reason to gasp when Roz dumped an 8-oz tumbler of 25 year-old Glenfarclas into the sink. At roughly $150 for a 26-oz bottle, she threw away almost $50 worth.

  • Season 8 Episode 6: Legal Tender Love and Care

  • The first classical selection that Frasier plays for Roz he introduces as "Beethoven's Sonata in C Sharp Minor". This piece is better known to the rest of us as "The Moonlight Sonata".

  • Season 8 Episode 4: The Great Crane Robbery

  • Frasier: I would like to close the show today with a truly inspirational tale. One year ago, a very successful friend of mine was struck by tragedy. Prognosis: not good. Hope: slim. But armed with only fortitude, this friend of mine fought back. I'm talking, of course, about the reopening of Seattle's finest restaurant, Chez Henri! Just goes to show you that a four-alarm fire is no match for five-star courage. This is Frasier Crane saying good day, and good mental health.

    This is a call back to RDWRER, when Niles' and Frasier's NYE plans are sent awry by Chez Henri burning down, which sets up the events for the episode.

  • Frasier: (To his boss, Todd Peterson, whom he plans to mentor) I will play Virgil to your Dante.

    This references The Divine Comedy, in which Dante uses the poet Virgil (70 BC) as his guide through hell, purgatory, and heaven.

  • Season 8 Episode 3: The Bad Son

  • The title of this episode is opposite of the pilot episode The Good Son.

  • Niles alludes to a meteor shower "several years ago" that he observed from Frasier's Balcony with Maris. Another earlier meteor shower appeared in "The Seal Who Came to Dinner", where Frasier and Niles threw a dinner party for the Gourmet Club at Maris's beach house, without Maris.

  • Frasier says this is his first time on a bus. However, he told Niles he went on one at a cocktail party once for the "Friends of Transit" in Season 7's "Back Talk (1)".

  • Season 8 Episode 2: And the Dish Ran Away wit...

  • Niles: (To Daphne as they dance) ...I'm from a small mountain village in Tibet. Tenzing Norgay used to carry me to school.

    Tenzing Norgay (Tibetan: 1914 - 1986), often referred to as Sherpa Tenzing, was a Nepalese Sherpa / Tibetan mountaineer. Near his 39th birthday on 29 May 1953, he and Sir Edmund Hillary were the first people known to have reached the summit of Mount Everest.

  • When Frasier is in the kitchen with Martin going on at length about how he will never again try to help Niles and Daphne, he uses the Latin phrase, "Numquam Postea!" Numquam means "at no time/never", and postea means "afterwards". In other words, "never again!"

  • During Niles' and Mel's "wedding reception", when Niles cuts the cake, you can see him then cut the slice in half again with the cake server. This is no doubt to make the piece smaller for when Mel stuffs an entire piece of cake into his mouth.

  • Season 8 Episode 1: And the Dish Ran Away wit...

  • Niles wants to take Daphne to a restaurant called "Au Pied du Cochon". In French, this means "The Pig's Trotter" or "The Pig's Foot".

  • Niles says on Daphne's wedding day, to Martin and Frasier, that he told her he loved her on his three-day wedding anniversary, making Daphne's wedding his four-day anniversary. At Nervosa, Mel says it's their four-day anniversary, when at this point one more night has passed and it's now five days since they married.

  • Season 7 Episode 24: Something Borrowed, Someo...

  • As Niles is [finally] explaining his true feelings to Daphne, Donny enters the room and asks Niles: What's the difference between a blister and a boil?! Maybe he was preoccupied, but the advice that Niles giving Donny is not really sound, medically speaking.

    Niles should be able to tell the difference between a blister or a boil. These are pretty common skin conditions and certainly would have been a part of his medical training.

    A single skin boil is an infection , which can be mild (and heal on its own) or it could be a sign of something more serious (i.e. diabetes, weaken immune system or a staph infection). The fact that it seems to be causing Donny pain, would suggest that it is on the more serious side.

    Medical treatment involves minor surgery, incision and drainage, and possibly antibiotics. Granted, a wedding is probably not the best way to perform this surgery, but it is something that would need to be addressed sooner rather then later.

    "Lukewarm" water is not even a temporary solution for a boil. Warm water, not boiling but hotter then lukewarm, may help with some of the pain and it may help the boil bust ("come to a head").

    Heck, getting a sharp pin or knife, sterilizing it with some alcohol, and using it to pop the boil would be better advice then "lukewarm" water. This method may leave a scar and cause additional complications, but it would probably alleviate the pain.

  • There are a couple people missing from the wedding guests without explanation. Daphne's father, for one (who'll give her away?). Also, Frasier's date (the reason Roz had to enlist Simon as her escort).

  • When the band is playing "They Can't Take That Away From Me," the song changes chords and notes, but the pianist's hands do not move accordingly.
