Continuity mistake: Near the end of the show, when Roz is telling Frasier about Lupe Velez, the wall clock in her booth shows the time to be 3:45. About 5 minutes pass, although the story only takes a couple of minutes, and there is no other action in the scene. The clock actually goes backward after that, showing 3:50 and then about 3:48 in the next shot.
Continuity mistake: As Catherine is about to leave Frasier's apartment near the end of the episode, you can see the white shirt she is wearing constantly changes between shots. At times it is hanging out very loosely and in other shots it is neatly tucked in and positioned to the right.
Continuity mistake: When Martin is sorting through the box of lyrics, the newspaper on his side table keeps switching position between shots - sometimes it is leaning on top of the remote control, others it is laying flat on the table next to the remote.
Trivia: Lisa Kudrow auditioned for the role of Roz. She had actually appeared before in an episode of Cheers, when she played a character called Emily who was giving Woody acting lessons. Peri Gilpin, who got the part of Roz, also played a reporter in Cheers season 11 - "Woody gets an election."
Continuity mistake: Early in the show Frasier is wrapping a Xmas present for Roz. The shot cuts to Chopper Dave and then back to Frasier. A bow and gift tag have appeared on the gift, but there wasn't enough time for that to have happened naturally.
Continuity mistake: Martin goes out to a baseball game with a famous writer that Frasier and Niles admire. While he is out, they read one of his books he accidentally left behind. When the author returns, he ends up holding the pages of the book in his hand, whilst standing in front of the fireplace. In one shot he is holding them in his left hand, but when the view cuts to another angle, he has them in his right hand. This occurs just before he goes outside to throw the pages off the balcony.
Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode after Sam mentions stewardesses he claps his hands, and his seat belt (which was caught on something) moves across his chest to the regular position. Cut to a wide shot of the car and Sam's seat belt is back to the position it was in before.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the show, Niles, Frasier and Daphne are at Cafe Nervosa. Daphne is standing up talking to Eric the server and Niles gets agitated, and spills sugar everywhere. Eric throws down a dish towel so they can clean it up. The dish towel appears and disappears several times during the scene.
Continuity mistake: While Marty and Frasier are fighting Marty smashes some plates. The shot changes to the living room with Frasier apologizing and then switches back again. However, now all the smashed crockery has disappeared to be replaced by what looks to be a bowl and a tumbler.
Continuity mistake: Early in the show, at Cafe Nervosa, Roz comes in and Bebe asks her to get her some coffee. Roz returns with a paper bag which she puts down on Bebe's right. In the next shot Bebe stands up with it in her left hand, but there was not enough time for it to change from the right to the left naturally.
Continuity mistake: About two thirds of the way through the show, Marty and Frasier are talking in the living room. Marty is sitting in his chair with a glass of milk. One shot shows him with both hands on his milk, and then he puts his left hand on the arm of the chair. In the next shot his hands are around his glass of milk again.
Other mistake: When Frasier is complaining that he is not mentioned in the acknowledgments of the novel, he picks up the book and then slams it down on the desk. It sits face up, near the front of the desk. In the next shot of the desk, we see that the book is face down and has moved back.
Continuity mistake: When Martin first finds out how Niles cured the basketball player, Niles is getting a drink, and Martin is in his chair. During the shots between them, the remote control on the table next to Martin instantly rotates between angles at least twice.

Continuity mistake: When Martin and Shelly are having a fight, Frasier puts a small bag down, which is yellow on one side and has a logo on the other. He puts it down with the yellow side facing us, and for a several shots it stays like that. However, when Martin is talking about "things that bugged me," you see the bag has inexplicably rotated so the logo is now facing us.

Continuity mistake: Martin and Frasier are having breakfast and Marty is making fun of Frasier's radio audience. In one shot Marty's arms are folding on the table in front of him over his newspaper - in the next shot one arm is stretched out over the newspaper and the other is at 45 degrees angle in front of him.
