Quotes

Niles: You don't realize how desperate I am. Ever since our separation, I've been paying women to touch me.

Frasier: Oh, Niles...

Niles: Manicurists, pedicurists, facialists. When you see a man who's well-groomed, you can bet he's not getting any.

Frasier: Niles, you know I'm right.

Niles: You just don't want me to have sex because you're not having any!

Niles: Your lips say "yes" but your cuticles speak volumes.

Frasier: As a matter of fact, this day only comes around once every four years. Hmm... You know, it's like a free day - a gift. We should do something special - be bold. It's leap year - take a leap!

Martin: You know, I was just about to say the same thing to you.

Frasier: Niles, I don't mind telling you, I'm a little bit concerned about this. Maris claps her hands; you come running?

Niles: Well, don't forget, there's a little something for me in this, too. I haven't had sex in six months.

Frasier: Oh, surely you're exaggerating. You've only been separated for three.

Niles: Your point would be?

[Frasier has just persuaded Niles to decline Maris' invitation]

Niles: Oh, you're right. I'll tell her no. It's not going to be easy, though.

Frasier: Of course not. Just don't think about sex.

[from the kitchen, making breakfast]

Daphne Moon: Would you like me to butter your buns for you, Dr. Crane?

Frasier: [Niles's hands rattle, and Frasier grabs them] Grandma in a teddy.

Niles: Thank you.

Niles: Well, let's get back to work. I need something to take my mind off the fact that, at this very moment, Maris is slipping out of her frilly under-things and into non-fat milk bath.

[Daphne enters with a horrid hairdo, sobbing]

Niles: Oh, and, by the way, thanks so much for the "cold shower" tip.

Frasier: Did it work?

Niles: No, it did not. It's clearly an old wives' tale, because I'm still thinking of my old wife's tail.
