Mark Twain Quote, 20 October 2008
Author: (natasha-gannon) from United Kingdom

hi, i was just wondering does anybody know the Mark Twain quote Fraiser says in this episode??? i remember thinking it was a very very good one & i liked the quote a lot! but i can't really remember what it was exactly and i really would like to know! Fraiser and Bob both say it at the same time and thats when Fraiser thinks he and Bob have some stuff in common and thinks he's made a new friend............ that is until Bob starts going on about BBQ's! So any help on this subject would be a great help. and very much appreciated. thank you very very very much in advance for any help you may be able to give... My kind regards. Natasha
