Corrected entry: When Roz is in labor at the hospital, Daphne arrives and tells the others that she came as soon as she heard. But she is saying this to Frasier, Niles, and Martin - the only three mutual friends that she shares with Roz. Nobody else could have told her to come.
Corrected entry: In earlier episodes Niles has talked about how Maris' food issues go back to her childhood, for example that she had to be taken to hospital to be force-fed as a child. But in this episodes, he claims that she was always chubby as a child.littlestar
Corrected entry: Niles says that after failing to confront Maris, he was turned away from the Oregon border check for having fruit in the car. Oregon is an interior state, and therefore without any form of border check. There might be a border check at the border with California, but Niles is approaching from Washington.LorgSkyegon
Corrected entry: This episode shows Niles wants to organise a anniversary dinner for him and Maris, but back in season 4 episode 22 he went through hoops to sign divorce papers and in the end he did in fact sign the papers. So this anniversary dinner seems odd and out of place for the situation currently going on with them both - why would he organise a anniversary dinner for a woman he is divorcing?Laura Low
Corrected entry: In this episode Frasier and Niles talk about how they met Marie when they were children because Martin was friends with her father, Duke, therefore, Frasier and Niles would have known Duke as well. But in the episode "Duke's, We Hardly Knew Ye", they met Duke for the first time.littlestar
Corrected entry: Niles is hovering over Daphne while she is grating carrots. He takes over for her so she can put the chicken in the oven. You can see that the carrot he is holding goes from having an angle (like it was already being grated) to a whole carrot, and back again.Roxy
Corrected entry: Why can Niles hear what Frasier has said when he is inside the sensory deprivation tank? The whole point of these are that you cannot hear anything happening outside, so Frasier's ranting shouldn't have been heard inside. Similarly, why did the writers even have this scene with Frasier trying to talk to "Maris" when she was supposed to be inside it? Clearly they didn't quite know how soundproof they are.David Mercier
Corrected entry: During the basketball game, Reggie comes up to Niles to ask him about his poor shooting game despite hearing the players moving and the ball hitting the rim off screen and there was no mention of a timeout. In a real game of basketball unless there was a timeout, stoppage of play or he was being subbed, no player could just walk off and start discussing something with someone during a game. There is only 5 players on each team. He's off for around 30 seconds.Lummie
Corrected entry: In the scene where Roz and Daphne are discussing seating arrangements, Roz makes a comment about Frasier and Niles going to prom together, to which Frasier elaborates defensively that they did not attend the prom "together" but that their "dates were sick and they went stag." Frasier and Niles would most certainly not have gone to the prom together, considering they are six years apart.
Corrected entry: Martin says in the pilot "two years ago I'm sailing toward retirement and some punk robbing a convenience store puts a bullet in my hip." In another episode he says to Niles "sometimes when life closes a door, you need to kick one open...of course last time I did that on a raid, the guy on the other side shot me in the hip."
Corrected entry: In this episode Roz is supposed to be pregnant. She found out two episodes before that she was going to have a baby. If so, then why is she drinking alcohol with Frasier and Niles? If she's pregnant, she shouldn't be drinking alcohol. You could see her drinking at two different times what appeared to be some kind of whiskey at one point, and then some kind of wine later on.AndressJade
Corrected entry: Early in the run of Frasier, Lilith arrives in Seattle for a visit. Niles is very cold with her, because he says "at our wedding when Maris was reciting her vows, which she wrote herself, vows of love from the heart, I distinctly heard snickering." Niles had been married to Maris for 15 years when they separated during the 3rd or 4th season. How then could Lilith have been at their wedding? At that time Frasier would have not have even known Lilith, and was probably involved with Diane Chambers.
Corrected entry: In the scene when Frasier and Martin are deciding where Daphne will stay, Martin mentions the study across the hall from his bedroom. Daphne eventually does stay in the study, which becomes her bedroom. However, in later episodes, Martin's bedroom is near Frasier's down the hall with the coat rack and Daphne's is near the piano. There is no room across from Martin's.
Corrected entry: In a previous episode when Frasier confronts Charlotte over his bad dates they have a long discussion about how she has moved back to Seattle because of a divorce and is living with her "crazy assed mother", yet in this episode we see Charlotte's apartment where there is no sign of her mother and only one bed.
Corrected entry: Frasier is getting everyone together to have a shot at the pinata and we can see a little girl in a bright pink dress running on the other side of the picnic table. As Frasier says "one for the children", she is suddenly standing right in front of him. There was no time for her to get there naturally.
Corrected entry: Mel is speaking to Niles at their fake engagement party & she refers to Daphne as his Cockney tart, or something similar. Saying Cockney would imply Daphne was from the South of England, more specifically, London. We know this to be untrue as it has been mentioned in numerous other episodes that Daphne is in fact from Manchester, in the Northwest of England. Daphne also has an obvious, and typical, Northern English accent. So for Mel to call her Cockney was inaccurate. On the same theme, the character Simon, Daphne's brother, has an accent that is the complete opposite to Daphne's. He could be called a Cockney and has a strong, but fake, Southern twang. Logically, if the two of them grew up together & he still lives in Manchester (which is established in an episode) there would be no way that he would suddenly pick up a Cockney accent, even if he had lived in the South for a time. Your true accent always comes out when you go home, so to be true to life, Simon should have spoke with a Northern accent. You would think that the casting execs would have seen this pretty glaring error even though it is an American show. It's probably more obvious (and annoying) for British viewers but it's still a mistake none the less.KinkyMinx
Corrected entry: Early on in the show, Martin, Niles and Frasier are in the living room talking about Daphne and Donny - Frasier is addressing a long envelope. He gets up from the table with it in his left hand and walks towards his desk. He gestures with his empty right hand as he walks. He gets to his desk and suddenly the envelope is in his right hand, with no time to have switched it.
Corrected entry: The younger girl that Frasier goes on a date with has to be 20 years old or younger, since she mentions that cops took a fake ID from her (she wouldn't need a fake one if she were 21). Isn't it unlikely that someone that age would have been able to pay the $10,000 fee for Charlotte's dating service?
Corrected entry: When Daphne is hired, Frasier assumes she will live out. Marty wants to her live in and says she could have the room across from his. Throughout the series, Daphne's room is down a hall behind the kitchen and Marty and Frasier's rooms are next to each other in the same hall. Even in the first show, Niles takes Marty's suitcases down the hall behind the fireplace.
Corrected entry: Marty is comforting Eddie who he says has been taunted by a blue jay. This particular bird is not found in Seattle - it is found in much of North America but not west of the Rockies. Marty, who had spent all his live in Seattle, would not make this mistake - and if he had spotted a blue jay there it would have been highly unusual and remarked on.
Corrected entry: When Frasier first meets Claire, they have a flirtatious exchange speaking German. This contradicts the episode in Season 2 when Frasier discovers that Maris might be having an affair with her new Bavarian fencing instructor; in that episode, he says to the caller, 'I sorry, I don't speak German', and Marthe translates for him in the conversation with the instructor.
Corrected entry: Frasier is with Niles at Cafe Nervosa, and he is telling him that he overheard Ronee make a date with Richard. Niles then argues that he wants no part of this issue and Frasier says, "You can't outscramble an egg" - when he should have say "unscramble". He was referring to Niles going back and undoing something already done. One could argue that we misspeak in real life, but this is a performance, not real life and it is a mistake of the performer (or the writers).
Corrected entry: Frasier lives in a high rise, apparently on the 19th floor (his is 1901). When Daphne throws the other tenant's laundry off the balcony, we hear the crash of cars below within a second or two (she had earlier explained to her therapist that she caused a car accident). In real life, of course, it would have taken longer for them to reach the ground.
Corrected entry: Roz acquires a Dalmatian puppy which is constantly referred to as a "he" even though it is a she. Roz even names it "Ariel" which Marty scoffs at as a girl's name. Later in the season the dog appears again, having grown quite a bit, but while it may not be the same dog, it is still a female, and is still referred to as "he".
Corrected entry: Before Niles is taken to the OR Roz says "24 hours ago we didn't even know anything was wrong with Niles". Yet his room is filled with flowers and cards and Maris has had time to find out through the gossiper Jaime. It seems a little unlikely if less than 24 hours had passed.
