Trivia

First episode where Frasier directly asks Niles if he is in love with Daphne. It is obvious he is. See more »

Goofs

Daphne uses the expression 'bumbershoot' to describe her umbrella, claiming it's a British term. In actuality, the word only is purely an American invention, and only appears in American English dictionaries. (A real example of a British colloquial term for "umbrella" would have been "brolly".)

Quotes

Daphne: [Martin has just left in a huff] Well, I guess I better go after him.
Dr. Niles Crane: Oh, here.
[hands her his umbrella]
Dr. Niles Crane: Take my bumbershoot.
Daphne: Oh, isn't that nice, well at least someone appreciates my mother tongue.
[leaves]
Dr. Niles Crane: Yes, I've always had an ear for your tongue.
Dr. Frasier Crane: Niles!

One of the best episode ever.
8 March 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I rarely watch a an episode more than once, but this is one of them. It is not only quintessential "Frasier" material, but it is intelligent clever, and witty. The entire episode, revolving around a single question Niles asks Frasier, "Are you happy?" takes place in Cafe Nervosa. The episode focuses mostly only dialogue and character development, but in such a way that you are constantly entertained. Involving all major characters as they interact with each other, it is filled with quotable quotes. What strikes me the most about is the way it is a self contained story. A person who has never seen Frasier before can sit down and watch it without having any background knowledge of the show. The running gag of Frasier never giving his coffee order right (and therefore has to constantly return it) is brilliantly played, and is the perfect way to break-up the episode into manageable segments. Over all, this is one of the finest episodes ever, "Frasier" or not.
