Goofs

It is past the time when Frasier's party guests were due to arrive but Frasier is still optimistic. The doorbell rings and he strikes a welcoming pose, hand on hip, arm raised and says "Daphne (Jane Leeves), open the floodgates!" You can see, however, that even before the doorbell rings, Kelsey Grammer has already begun to assume this welcoming pose. See more »

Quotes

Niles: This is really bringing out the lawyer in you, isn't it?
Donny Douglas: The bartender, actually. I was just wondering how big a drink to make you.
