Goofs

Frasier and Martin are having an argument near the end of the episode and in a fit Martin breaks a plate on the counter. In the next shot most of the broken pieces have disappeared and in their place is now a bowl which wasn't anywhere to be seen before and no one had enough time to clean the mess in between shots.

Quotes

Frasier: [to Eddie] All right, young animal: learn from the master. Now, follow these time-honored traditions, and you too might get lucky with that young Pekinese peach you've been eyeing in the park. Now, for mood: Vivaldi. And then, for lighting: not so bright as to show the wrinkles, not so dark as to make her think you're hiding anything. And leaving nothing to chance...

Worth Noting For One Joke
28 December 2007 | by See all my reviews

Typical Frasier episode, with the Crane up to his usual buffoonery.

But I want to note one particular incident in this episode (actually a two-parter).

Daphne has made Frasier aware of someone watching the goings-on in the elevator with the security camera.

Later, with nothing to do with anything else in the plot, Frasier is about to tuck in his shirt, then stops and eyes the camera.

No, he won't be viewed in this personal moment with this camera, so Frasier opens up his umbrella to block the camera's view, then begins tucking in his shirt.

His pants fall down.

The door to the lift now opens with Frasier standing there, holding his pants around his knees and having the umbrella open.

Daphne, by now at Roz's level of unimpressed or unsurprised by Crane behavior, simply observes him as he waddles out of the elevator and she enters.

Daphne looks up at the unseen camera and simply says "he's been under a lot of stress." It would be simple things like this, unconnected to anything else in the episode, that began to make Frasier even better.

I mark this one because years from now I will be wondering which episode it was that Frasier had an umbrella and his pants down in the elevator.

It was this one.
