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.

Plot hole: In this show Daphne's former fiance, Clive, shows up. They had been engaged for several years in England. However, in Series 1, episode 11 (Death Becomes Him), Daphne talks about never having had a serious boyfriend, and goes into some detail about how people tried to set her up with eligible men. As Daphne is open about everything else, there seems to be no logical reason for her to not mention she'd been engaged.
Continuity mistake: Frasier is in the kitchen pouring mini chocolate chip cookies from a bag into a bowl while talking to Daphne. The motion of him pouring (and the sound) doesn't stop while he talks but when the shot changes the bag is on the counter next to him.
Continuity mistake: When Clive arrives at the apartment, he puts his coat over the front of the arm of the couch. As the scene progresses and Marty tells him about being an astronaut, the coat is suddenly on the back of the arm of the couch, even though no one moved it.
Other mistake: Clive called the condo to ask for Daphne. Later, when he is under the impression that Daphne is married to Niles, he says that Daphne is still listed in the phone book as Daphne Moon. Why is Daphne listed under Frasier's home number? The episode "Dial M for Martin" establishes that she feels a need to move on when a patient no longer needs her. At this point, she does not consider herself a permanent part of the household.
