Trivia

During their conversation about Phil Patterson's belief that he had been "beamed up" to an alien vessel, Niles says to Frasier "Are you kidding me? I'm a doctor, not a miracle worker!" This is likely a reference to the famous catchphrase "I'm a doctor, not a...(insert various professions)" spoken by Dr. Leonard McCoy in Star Trek (1966). See more »

Goofs

Frasier refers to "kidney pie" as a nadir in British cuisine. There is no such specialty. The nearest would be "steak and kidney pie". See more »

Quotes

Holden Thorpe: So a guy like you, unmarried, didn't serve his country, sees fit to criticize a patriotic family man who fought in the battle of Grenada. I went in on the first wave, by the way.
Frasier: On a surfboard, I suppose.

The sane choice
30 June 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Martin and the Crane boys are divided in terms of who to back in a local election, and it makes for an interesting, if not outstanding episode of the show.

I thought John Mahoney was good here, Martin has become less of a grump and more lovable as time has gone on, and this episode is a good example of that.

It's an episode of twists and turns, but there are enough good laughs, as well as the always welcome sight of Bulldog.

Although I felt they could have done more with Niles and his reaction to the situation overall this was a good episode.
