In Episode 6 of Season 1, Frasier telephones the police to report being ripped off by an art dealer. As a prank, Martin instructs Frasier to ask for "the fine art forgery department". Thus, Frasier asks for "the fine art forgery department". The police laugh at Frasier and disregard his call. Martin then tells Frasier that the police are too busy solving murders and robberies to investigate art forgery. However, art forgery is a crime, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation has an Art Crime Division. Thus, the police would have taken Frasier's call seriously and would not have laughed it off.
