  • Trivia

    • When Linda opens her beer, her three piles of poker chips are arranged in a triangle. In the next shot, they are laid out in a line, but she has not moved them.

    • Frasier: (Referring to his ability to identify a criminal simply through observation) What truffles are to pigs so are these charlatans and pettifoggers to my mental acuity.

      On the First Season DVD, however, the closed captioning has him saying "What troubles are to pigs...", which makes no sense at all.

  • Quotes

    • Daphne: I've made meatball sandwiches, pepperoni pizzas and little sausage rolls. Will you be needing anything else?
      Frasier: The number of the nearer gastroenterologist.

    • Frasier: Excuse me, dad, if I can interrupt that self-righteous police mentality for a second, don't you believe in second chances?
      Martin: I did. Then we had Niles.

    • Episode Title: You Can't Tell a Crook by His Cover

      The episode title is an obvious reference to the proverb "You can't judge a book by it's cover".
