Cranes Go Caribbean - S8-E24

Audio problem: In the restaurant Frasier says "There's an ocean of fresh fish not 15 feet away," and you can even see the blue reflection of the water and it's movement as it laps against the shore. Why then, can't you hear waves crashing at all? This is especially strange as in every other scene in this restaurant you can year it, but not in this particular one.

And the Dish Ran Away with the Spoon (1) - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: Niles says on Daphne's wedding day that he told her he loved her on his 3 day anniversary, making Daphne's wedding his 4 day anniversary. At Nervosa, Mel says it's their 4 day anniversary, when at this point one more night has passed and it's now 5 days since they married.

Taking Liberties - S8-E5

Audio problem: In the opening credits Frasier is in Cafe Nervosa with Roz, who is trying to sell him gift wrap. He says, "I'm not crazy about Garfield," and then his lips keep moving even though there is no sound heard.

Taking Liberties - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: The butler and Frasier are discussing the new president of the opera board and Ferguson pours Marty a cup of coffee. In the next shot, over Marty's shoulder, we see he already has the cup in his hand, although there was no time for this to happen naturally.

Taking Liberties - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: Roz is at Frasier's soirée joking with Mr. Worth about selling him some giftwrap. Just before she says "everything but my bracelets", her drink and hat switch from her right hand to her left and her canapé from her left to her right. In the next shot they've switched back again.

Taking Liberties - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: Marty is leaving for the game and Frasier's butler hands him a paper bag with a sandwich in it. Marty carries it in his left hand, but by the time he gets to the door, the bag is folded up much smaller and looks much more crinkled.

The New Friend - S8-E7

Continuity mistake: Roz comes back to the restaurant table, after phoning her babysitter, and says, "I have to go". At this point her purse is over her wrist. As she finishes saying, "Alice got a bead up her nose", she is holding the purse by its strap. A few shots later it is over her wrist again, even though she never moved it.

The Bad Son - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: When Niles and Daphne are on the roof having their picnic, Niles tries Daphne's peanut brittle but when she turns away he throws it off the roof, and lays the plate down on the blanket. When Daphne turns back and asks him what happened to the candy, we see him holding the plate again, even though he had no time to pick it up.

Motor Skills - S8-E11

Continuity mistake: Martin is sitting on the coffee table hugging the puppy who is nuzzling his face. He says "No" to Roz and in the next shot the puppy is no longer near his face.

Legal Tender Love and Care - S8-E6

Audio problem: This does not sound like a case of Frasier stuttering but it sounds like two sets of the same line over top of each other. When Niles sees Donny come into the restaurant, Abby and Frasier just turn to look and Niles exclaims "I said, don't look." - and Frasier says "you - you did not - not". It's as though they forgot to edit out some sound from two different shots.

Legal Tender Love and Care - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: During the closing credits, when Niles goes to Frasier's with some licorice, Marty is lying on the couch, sick. At first his cane handle is facing the fireplace, but when the shot changes, it has moved about 45 degrees towards the window. When he gets off the couch, the handle is facing the fireplace again.

Legal Tender Love and Care - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: Soon after Abbie has arrived at Frasier's, Daphne says to Niles, "It's cute when you do it," and he has his hand on her shoulder. In the next shot, his hands are in his lap and she is taking a sip from her glass, with no time for a natural change.

Docu.Drama - S8-E16

Continuity mistake: When Frasier is in the conference room with Roz, his binder changes from shot to shot. Sometimes there are 4 brightly coloured tabs at the top, sometimes only 2. The same shots show a change in the papers on the table too.

The Great Crane Robbery - S8-E4

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the show, Roz goes into Frasier's booth and starts to put her pencil on the console - but in the next shot, as Kenny comes in, she is reaching for papers and the pencil is nowhere in sight.

The Bad Son - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: When Daphne and Niles are on the roof having their picnic, the basket behind them is opened from the center and on the inside on the left are two champagne glasses. A couple of shots later and the glasses are now on the right side, even though no one touched the basket.

And the Dish Ran Away with the Spoon (1) - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: Frasier is in Donny's office, and Donny is holding a little wedding cake groom. He covers the groom with his hands while he's talking, but when Frasier says, "Daphne realizes you went to great expense," the little bridegroom is visible again, even though in real time it couldn't have happened.

Frasier: And though washing one's hands twenty to thirty times a day would be considered obsessive/compulsive, please bear in mind that your husband is a coroner. Thank you for your call, Jeanine. Roz, whom do we have next?

Caught in the Act - S11-E15

Trivia: When Nanette tells Frasier she's tired of playing her children's show character, she asks him if he knows what it's like to play the same character for twenty years. By this point, Kelsey Grammer had been playing Frasier for twenty years: eleven on 'Frasier' and nine on 'Cheers'.

Show generally

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?

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.
