    The title of this episode "Where Every Bloke Knows Your Name" is an obvious allusion to Cheers, and with good reason as a large portion of this episode took place in a bar. We had some great Frasier and Daphne scenes, and those are two who rarely had any one on one moments during the show, so it was good to see it here.

    I think this show set the bar for intelligent comedy, not just with the way they talk, but the actual way they handle storylines, but this was not an intelligent episode. There was nothing smart about it, but it was still really funny.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When Frasier unexpectedly sits in at the poker game, two of the regular players are already sitting on relatively uncomfortable folding wooden chairs, yet Frasier finds an unused comfortable desk chair right beside the poker table.

    • (Frasier and Niles are at the Café Nervosa)
      Niles: These biscotti represent an all-time low. Chalky aftertaste, inelegant aroma, spongy.
      Frasier: And what is spongy biscotti but an unwelcome trespasser into Madeleine territory.

      Madeleines are a shell-shaped, French spongecake cookie, crisp on the outside, but cake on the inside.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Frasier: (trying to convince the people at the pub that he's an anglophile) I spell 'colour' with a 'u'!

    • Niles: At this point I just need to be by myself. My brother has abandoned me, my wife is cursing my name. Tonight when Orpheus descends into hell, I'll be there waiting for him with a fruit basket!

    • Niles: The present I ordered for Maris's birthday has arrived. I got her the most exquisite antique saddle.
      Frasier: Oh... How does it look on you?

  • NOTES (0)


    • At the end, Niles inquires "I take it 'It's over, over there?'" This is an obvious allusion to George M. Cohan's song "Over There" about American soldiers serving in Europe in WWI.

    • "Tonight when Orpheus descends into hell, I'll be there waiting for him with a fruit basket!"

      Niles is alluding to the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. When his wife Eurydice dies, Orpheus descends into hell in order to convince Hades, the god of the underworld, to give her back. He is permitted to return her to the upper world on the condition that he not look behind him while she follows him on their journey.
