Farewell, Nervosa - S10-E20

Continuity mistake: When Niles and Frasier are first talking to one another in Cafe Nervosa, Niles' coffee cup goes from held in his hand to sat on his saucer in an instant.


Ask Me No Questions - S4-E23

Continuity mistake: In this scene, Martin and Daphne are arguing about Martin buying the gift basket for Daphne because Daphne knitted the sweater for Martin. Daphne says the basket cost too much, so Martin begins to take items from the basket and put them on the table. Then as the argument progresses Martin and Daphne decide to take back their gifts. Martin places the gift basket on his chair (the two items that were taken from the basket are still on the table) and Daphne takes the sweater. A minute later they make up and agree to re-exchange the gifts. Daphne gives Martin his sweater and when Martin reaches for the basket, all items are there, including the ones that were still sitting on the table when he put the basket on the chair.

Frasier Grinch - S3-E9

Factual error: At the cafe, the employee says that Niles' credit card was declined at the register because "cancelled by order of co-signatory." A co-signatory shouldn't be able to cancel the card without the other person.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: It depends on state laws and the credit card company. A co-signor is just as liable for any accumulated debts and fees on the card, they just don't have purchasing rights. However, usually a co-signor can't just take his or her name off the account, the account has to be closed.


Are there cash registers that will reveal that a cosigner cancelled? I've been a cashier at a few places, the register always says "declined" or "insufficient funds."

Guess Who's Coming to Breakfast - S1-E13

Character mistake: In this episode Roz comments that Noel drives a 1973 Dodge Polaris. There is no Dodge Polaris. There is, however, a Dodge Polara.

Out With Dad - S7-E15

Continuity mistake: In the beginning scene, Niles and Frasier are arguing by the door. Right after Niles leaves and Frasier yells "Get out! ", the camera pans out and you can see the entire room, at which point Roz is holding her wine glass in her right hand. Immediately after, the camera cuts to Roz who says, "yeah, some nerve..., " and the glass is now on the table in front of her left hand. There wasn't time for her to set it down (especially across her body), and the camera stays focused on her continuously through both shots.


The Focus Group - S3-E23

Visible crew/equipment: When Niles walks into the apartment in the scene after the Focus Group, the stage lights are reflected in the picture on the wall. (00:09:10)

Casual Person

The Last Time I Saw Maris - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Daphne is holding a fire poker when she is having a psychic message. Just after Niles says "Oh dear God", the poker is held straight up. In the next shot, the poker is partially lowered. (00:03:35)

Casual Person

The Club - S2-E18

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Frasier leaves to return to the club to rescind his membership, what appears to be a boom mic is visible in the top-left of the frame in two wide shots. (00:16:15 - 00:16:45)

Fool Me Once, Shame on You, Fool Me Twice... - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: Daphne visits the radio station where Frasier works about halfway through the episode. She holds the earphone piece up to her right ear, then it cuts to a different camera angle and the headphones are lying on the desk with no time between shots. It's actually quite glaring.

The Devil and Dr. Phil - S10-E21

Continuity mistake: When Bebe is talking to Frasier, she is eating a piece of celery. The piece changes size between shots, most noticeably at the very end of the conversation when it suddenly goes from large to tiny.


The Love You Fake - S9-E20

Continuity mistake: When Daphne steals Niles' Segway, Cora is laughing in the background and covering her mouth with both hands. The angle changes and now her hands are on the table.


A New Position for Roz - S10-E24

Continuity mistake: When Niles and Daphne are babysitting Alice, a pink feather from Daphne's boa keeps vanishing and reappearing on the side of her chair.


The Botched Language of Cranes - S2-E6

Plot hole: Several times throughout the show, it's bought up that there is a seven second delay on Frasier's show at KACL, which, among other things, would allow Roz to "dump" the last seven seconds of what's been said and prevent it from being broadcast. When Roz notices that Frasier is still on the air during his rant, it takes her about nine seconds to get back to her console, so she should have been able dump the last seven seconds of his rant, leaving only the first few words of Frasier's rant (likely no more than "Good grief, have you...") going to air, which would be much less awkward compared to his entire rant. (00:09:20 - 00:09:50)


Sea Bee Jeebies - S11-E10

Character mistake: Frasier tells Niles that the article on him will be in the winter/spring issue of Seattle Broadcaster. The man who interviews him introduces himself as a journalist from the Seattle Times.


Give Him the Chair! - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: In the episode "Call Me Irresponsible" from season 1, Frasier and Catherine are making out on Martin's old chair, which starts vibrating (probably because they inadvertently hit a switch on the side). But in "Give Him the Chair", Frasier tries to replace Martin's old chair by buying a new one which has a built-in massager. When Martin tries it, he looks horrified and says "That's disgusting", even though his beloved chair had the same feature.

Daphne Returns - S8-E19

Plot hole: When Frasier is trying to get to the bottom of Niles' problem viewing Daphne in a real way, we see them both against past scenes in the show; Frasier watches and comments on some of them as he talks but because he is actually only discussing these events with Niles, he shouldn't be able to see a visual of anything such as the dress Daphne is wearing during the dance scene.


Frasier: Niles, I would shave my head for you.
Niles: A gesture which becomes less significant with each passing year.
