Trivia

A very similar scene involving multi-step language translation appears in I Love Lucy: Paris at Last (1956). Lucy gets in trouble with the police and the questions asked by the police lieutenant in French are translated into German by a detective, from German into Spanish by a civilian in the police station, and lastly from Spanish into English by Ricky. Lucy's answers are translated back for the lieutenant and the scene contains many of the same gags as the scene in this episode, such as the translators "translating" physical gestures and wordless expressions like "ehh."

Goofs

When Niles says he went only to the 'Or-eh-gone' border because of the fresh fruit not being allowed past it, he was wrong (likely due to the show being taped in CA). In reality it is the California border which holds back fresh fruit when one enters from OR or elsewhere. This is due to the enormous farming industry in CA and the danger of introducing foraging insects into it, which could wreak much havoc to the plants, let alone the financial repercussions for damaged plants/crops. Oregon and Washington don't have the fresh fruit restrictions, normally. See more »

Quotes

Frasier: Niles, are you going to be spending the evening with us?
Niles: Yes. As much as my Maris misses me, she feels family comes first. When she saw this model, she felt it was the perfect project for me to share with dad.
Frasier: She wanted you out of the house, huh?
Niles: Like a musty smell.

This is one of the best episodes of 'Frasier' series 2, and perhaps the whole 11 years of the show in general.

Farcically funny and with some great performances, it's the show at its best, ticking all the boxes that make 'Frasier' so good.

It's not been the most consistent series in my opinion (though from watching the creators interviews on the DVD) I know they disagree, but this certainly is a shining example of why 'Frasier' works.
