Trivia

When Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) and Niles (David Hyde Pierce) break into their childhood home Niles congratulates Frasier and tells him, "You've still got it." Frasier replies that it is "just like riding a bicycle." That is an odd thing for Frasier to say because we learned in the next season's episode (10.6 Frasier: Fraternal Schwinns (2003)) that Niles and Frasier never learned how to ride bicycles when they were young. In that episode, Frasier even remarks to Daphne (Jane Leeves) that people are always saying "it's just like riding a bike" in conversation, "but I only understand it in theory." See more »

Quotes

Dr. Frasier Crane: So, what is this anyway?
Roz Doyle: It's a flattened penny. I found it at the railroad tracks once when I was going through a really bad time. But as soon as I picked it up, started getting lucky.
Dr. Frasier Crane: Oh, so that's where it all started.
