Goofs

Regarding the meteor shower referenced a couple minutes into the show, Niles states in Frasier's living room: "I was over here, having dinner with Maris. I will never forget that night." Then he indicates he was on the balcony witnessing the display ... and absolutely miserable. But two years previous, within a couple weeks, was the episode "The Seal Who Came to Dinner", where Niles tried to use Maris' beach house as a forum for his gourmet club, ending in disaster. Obviously he could not have been watching these meteor showers from two vantage points at the same time. Plus, at that time, Maris and he were separate and so it seems unlikely he would have had her for dinner at the Crane apartment. See more »

When the title "Frasier" and the usual silhouette of Seattle are on screen, animated, ever-increasing rings radiate from the highest point of the Space Needle (presumably representing radio transmissions). See more »
