Bulldog becomes a hero when he appears to thwart an attempted armed robbery at the café. Only Frasier saw what really happened: mistaking a different man for the robber, he pulled Roz in front of him as a human shield, inadvertently spilling his coffee on the actual robber. When Bulldog basks in his acclaim and refuses to confess, Frasier prepares an elaborate surprise to draw out his conscience at the SeaBea awards.

Bulldog is seen dropping his coffee cup in order to hide behind Roz and turn her towards the person he erroneously thinks is the gunman. The dropped coffee cup spills on the real gunman, who is standing to the left of the counter and is looking towards the server's working area. However he has his body turned towards the door while pulling his gun.
The coffee cup then rolls off the muffin tray and onto the floor by the entry door side of the counter. In the next few frames the coffee cup is not seen on the counter then returns lying on its side. As we watch the scene recounted by Frasier later at home, we see the coffee cup leave Bulldog's hand. It seems to go over the muffins in the other direction, bounce on the counter, and then fall into the walkway where the servers work. The cup bottom is facing the gunman. We then see the scene a third time where the coffee cup spills its contents on the outside counter area over the muffins and the coffee spills onto the gunman's hand. This time the cup bottom is facing away from the gunman. See more
[Daphne is contemplating what it would be like to have a free lifetime's supply of muffins
Now me, I could eat a muffin a day, some days even two knowing they'd be free. So that'd be... ten a week, fifty-two weeks a year, for at least another... forty years, which works out to... Twenty thousand muffins!
My life suddenly seems long, measured in muffins.
