Frasier

Frasier Loves Roz - S3-E22

Revealing mistake: Frasier, Roz and Ben are sitting at a table in Cafe Nervosa. However, as the camera is panning out when Ben sits down you can see the outside of Cafe Nervosa because the wall is only a small partition. The camera zoomed out too far. (00:06:30)

The Two Mrs. Cranes - S4-E1

Revealing mistake: The guy who plays Clive in this episode has one of the most appalling accents I have heard. He's apparently from Manchester, but sounds like a sort of cockney South African. His accent slips around all the time; it's very poor. I wouldn't normally submit it, but his is so shockingly bad I doubt anyone would be fooled into thinking he was British.

Suggested correction: First, not every single person from one area sounds the same. People can be influenced by a parent/other family members from different areas. I am native to the Southern region of the USA, but one of my parents is Northern. I have been told that I don't sound like a stereotypical Southerner. We don't know anything about Clive's family. Second, I have seen quite a few movies or TV episodes with actors whom I know to be actual British people, and Clive doesn't sound much different than any of them.

I am English and believe me that accent is the worst example of English I have heard in my life.

The Club - S2-E18

Factual error: When Frasier goes back to The Club to talk to the president about giving his membership to Niles, the butler comes over to offer him an 1896 port. But the bottle is actually a Baul Madeira, not a port. (00:19:40)

To Thine Old Self Be True - S7-E20

Revealing mistake: When Reagan drops her bag in the hallway when she is talking to Frasier, a lettuce rolls towards him. It didn't fall from her bag: if you look closely you can see it was tossed into the frame from just outside the camera view, obviously to ensure that it would land at Frasier's feet for the comic effect of him kicking it back to her.

The Kid (2) - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Frasier and Roz are talking at her apartment, the mug that had been sitting on a tray moves off the tray and is sitting right on the table.

Guns N' Neuroses - S11-E9

Continuity mistake: Why can Lilith hear what they are saying through the door? In several other episodes, the characters have had arguments or insulted the person at the door without them being able to hear. Yet here suddenly it's possible for her to hear.

David Mercier

Author, Author - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: There was an episode in which Martin attempts to end a feud between Frasier and Niles by telling a story about his detective partner. He starts with the line, "I never had a brother...", but in the episode about Frasier's cousin Nikos getting married, Martin's brother Walt was introduced.

I Hate Frasier Crane - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: During the opening credits, Frasier is playing the piano and Martin is going through papers on the table. When Marty says "I don't know, Eddie, must you?" there is something pink lying on the table. The shot goes back to Eddie and then back to the table, but the pink item has disappeared.

Beloved Infidel - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: Near the start of the show, Roz is in her booth at KACL and takes out her lipstick and compact - we see her uncap the lipstick. Then Niles comes in an Frasier reintroduces them, and we see her uncap the lipstick again.

High Holidays - S11-E11

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the show, Frasier is explaining to Niles how he was stood up that evening; at the same time he is getting himself a glass of sherry. Niles says, "there was no emergency", we see Frasier repeat the actions to get a glass of sherry all over again.

Space Quest - S1-E2

Audio problem: Just before Frasier opens the door to get his paper, he says "I'll get him for this and his little dog too". However, his mouth moves when he says "I'll get him for this and his...", but his mouth doesn't move when he says "...little dog too". (00:02:40)

Casual Person

Roz in the Doghouse - S2-E12

Revealing mistake: About 1/3 through the episode, they are in Roz's apartment. If you watch when people enter or leave the apartment, the door has a handle lockset. It also has a lock cylinder about 1 1/2 feet above it on both sides of the door. The problem is, the side of the door has no drill hole where the latch assembly should be: it's just solid wood. The lock isn't attached to anything that would enable it to work.

Suggested correction: This is not a mistake. Often tenants install deadbolts and vacate without leaving a key, and it is quite common for the landlord to just remove the bolt assembly and patch the edge of the door. By leaving the lock in place, the landlord avoids having to replace the door, or repair a large hole through the door with 2 finished surfaces. If Roz had actually used a key in the lock, THAT would be a mistake.

Selling Out - S1-E9

Frasier: Roger, at Cornell University they have an incredible piece of scientific equipment known as the Tunneling Electron Microscope. Now, this microscope is so powerful that by firing electrons you can actually see images of the atom, the infinitesimally minute building blocks of our universe. Roger, if I were using that microscope right now, I still wouldn't be able to locate my interest in your problem.

Show generally

Question: There's probably an obvious answer to this but is there any actual in-show significance to the 'Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs' song heard at the end of every episode? I ask mainly because I remembered there was one show in particular where Frasier unintentionally scars Lilith emotionally and pretty much cements the end of their relationship over a misunderstanding about scrambled eggs. Were there any similar conflicts over a tossed salad?

Answer: In the last episode, they explained that Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs is a metaphor for the mixed-up people to whom Frasier dispenses his radio psychiatric advice.
