Frasier

A Day in May - S8-E23

Question: Beyond the obvious (he hasn't gotten over it or is still upset about it) is there a reason Martin didn't want to say anything at the parole hearing? And what was the point of showing this?

Chosen answer: While he hasn't gotten over it, he also took into account what the shooter's mother said. He refused to make a statement either for or against him. He can't forgive the shooter, but he's gotten past the anger.

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?

Chosen 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.

Something Borrowed, Someone Blue (1) - S7-E23

Question: Niles says about the garter Roz brings that he "especially likes the little adometre", or something similar. What does that mean?

Chosen answer: Odometer. It's the thing in the car that measures how far you've gone. It's a joke on how many guys she's been with.

Question: Counting his role on Cheers, Kesley Grammar has played Fraiser for twenty years. Is this the record for the longest portrayal of a character by a TV actor?

Chosen answer: It equals the record of James Arness of "Gunsmoke" for the actor who's played the same part on TV NOT in a soap opera. If you include soaps there are two main contenders - William Roache, who's been playing Ken Barlow in "Coronation Street" in the UK since 1960. Don Hastings has been playing Robert Hughes in US soap "As the World Turns" since 1960 as well.

Room Service - S5-E15

Question: When Niles and Lilith wake up in the hotel room, what does Niles mean when he says that this happens every day in Arkansas?

Chosen answer: When Frasier and Lilith got married, Lilith became Niles' sister-in-law. Even though they're divorced and she's now his ex-sister-in-law, it was just a joke about the stereotype that in Arkansas, brothers and sisters sleep together. One could also interpret it as in Arkansas, guys sleep with their brother's ex-wives, but that's not a stereotype associated with the South.

It's Hard to Say Goodbye If You Won't Leave - S3-E10

Question: In this episode, Frasier is portrayed as being allergic to cats, and cannot be close to Kate's cat. What about the times when he had sex with Kate (at the radio station building, in the elevator in his building, etc.)? As a cat-owner, shouldn't her clothes have set off his allergies before?

Chosen answer: Not necessarily. Cat allergies aren't caused by the cat's fur (so if she has cat fur on her clothes, it wouldn't actually bother his allergies). It's the cat's dander (dry skin flakes), saliva, and/or urine that people are allergic to, so if her clothes don't have traces of any of that, he would be fine. For example, she could have clothes at work she changes into, or simply keeps her clothes in a room the cat isn't around.

Question: Is there anyway to see the scenes at the end of each episode without the theme song playing over it so the dialogue can be heard?

strikeand

Chosen answer: There is no dialogue - the end scenes are deliberately constructed to be visual, with no audio.

Something About Dr. Mary - S7-E16

Question: In the café, Chuck tells Roz something about his wife leaving him for someone. What does he say? I can't make out the last part of his sentence.

Chosen answer: He says that his wife left him in the Caribbean for a Rastafarian. It sounds like 'wasta-fah-wian' due to his speech impediment.

A Lilith Thanksgiving - S4-E7

Question: When Marty and Frederick go outside to play, Niles shakes the turkey and something falls off it. What was it that fell off the turkey?

Casual Person

Chosen answer: The turkey's stuffing.

Question: What is the name of the episode where Frasier becomes the subject of radio pranks?

The Impossible Dream

Chosen answer: 'Radio Wars' - Season 7 episode 3.

Show generally

Question: Why did Frasier and Lilith get divorced?

Chosen answer: Lilith had an affair with one of her colleagues.

Captain Defenestrator

Show generally

Question: When Nanny G says that she has played the same character for twenty years it gets a big laugh. What is the joke? Am I missing something here?

Chosen answer: Nanny G (Nanette Guzman - played by Laurie Metcaf) has been a children's entertainer for twenty years, and tells Frasier, "Do you know what it's like to play the same character for 20 years?!" The joke is that Kelsey Grammer has been playing Frasier Crane since 1984, when the character first appeared on "Cheers", so Kelsey in real life has been doing just that!

Super Grover

Show generally

Question: How much older is Frasier than Niles, and what is the age difference between Niles and Daphne?

Chosen answer: According to Wikipedia (so add the usual disclaimer), Frasier is six years older than Niles. Daphne's age is never stated - if we were to make the assumption that she's the same age as the actress who plays her, then Daphne would be three years younger than Niles.

The Placeholder - S11-E5

Question: Frasier lets his neighbor's cat stay with him. But in the episode "It's Hard to Say Goodbye if You Won't Leave", he was allergic to cats and could not be near Kate's cat.

Answer: Over multiple seasons, a long-running show's details can often change or are inadvertently forgotten, creating plot holes. This would be such an example.

Question: Would it be realistic for someone with Martin's injury to need a physical therapist for eleven years?

Answer: No, and it's outright stated in the show that Martin doesn't need her around after a few years, but the Crane family (Niles especially) are very fond of her, and want to have her around. Daphne, too, has become very attached to the Cranes and is reluctant to leave.

The Show Where Woody Shows Up - S6-E13

Question: Niles tells Frasier, "You would never make it in private practice" (after Frasier complains about discussing the same stories with Woody). If Frasier has never operated his own practice, how did he work as a psychiatrist before his radio show?

Chosen answer: Like any doctor, not all psychiatrists have a private practice...some work on the staff in hospitals. When he was on Cheers, before moving to Seattle and his own show, Frasier worked at Boston General.

Show generally

Question: Every cast member of Cheers has been on Frasier at one time or another except Kirstie Alley (Rebecca). Does anyone know why she did not appear?

Chosen answer: She did not see herself reprising that role unless Rebecca had made a huge change like becoming a psychiatrist.

Quotes

[Martin sees Frasier has a lot of cuts on his face from shaving.]
Martin: I thought you were just going to slit your wrists. Looks like you went for death by a thousand cuts.
Frasier: I cut myself shaving because I was shaving without water. Why was there no water? Because I had to move your chair, which gouged the floor, which made me call for Joe, who found bad pipes, which called for Cecil, who ate the cat that killed the rat that LIVED IN THE HOUSE THAT FRASIER BUILT!
