Trivia

When Leland Barton (David Ogden Stiers) (who worked closely with Martin's wife) arrives to visit Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) and his family, Martin (John Mahoney) has some doubts if he really is the father of Frasier and Niles (David Hyde Pierce), since Leland shares so many interests with Frasier and Niles. In Cheers (1982), Frasier stated his father was a research scientist. It is then referred to in the episode Frasier: The Show Where Sam Shows Up (1995) and explained the discrepancy. See more »

Goofs

When Frasier and Leland are drinking Sherry, Frasier describes it as an "Andalusian Amontillado". All Sherry is from Andalusia and their drink is a pale straw colour (probably Fino), whereas Amontillado is an oxidized variety making it a rich brown. See more »
