When Martin is hinting that he'd like Frasier to accompany him on the fishing trip, Daphne recalls memories of her brothers' friends returning from the lake looking masculine, saying: "I just couldn't wait to pan-fry their kippers". Kippers are salted, smoked herring, which couldn't have been caught in any lake. See more »
