Niles guesses from Daphne's accent that she is from Manchester and she says he is right. In fact Jane Leeves's assumed accent is not identifiably Mancunian but appears to be a generic Yorkshire. See more »


Frasier: [about Daphne] She's psychic. We've decided to find it charming.

Welcome to Martin's world
16 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With no plans for the night, Niles and Frasier go to a place with nothing but Martins all around! When they go to the rustic Timber Mill, they are surprised to find out that nothing they normally like is there, no chardonnay, no wine or Merlot, Bordeaux or Sauvignon Blanc (I'm not a Winehead although I would like to try some of them). They are there like babes in the woods with car-sick bags and of course as you can imagine, making fun of everything there is. When Martin tells them that even though their Mother liked opera and the things they like now, she was never one to put people down. In light of that, they wonder if they really are snobs and to prove otherwise, clear their plates
