Frasier Quote #380
Frasier: Well... The notion of investing is sound. In fact, I have $500 here in my pocket that Lilith has entrusted me to invest in a gilt-edged bond for little Frederick's future.
Carla: So Lilith controls the purse strings in your family?
Frasier: Oh, yes, with the eagle eye. It's a good thing, too. I mean, you know me, left to my own devices, wastrel that I am, I might blow 2 bucks a week on a lousy beer.
Norm: Well, investing sounds good on paper, but the problem is with inflation, you know, when those bonds mature, that money will be worthless. So little Freddy will lose money on the deal.
Frasier: Oh, well, screw him. It'll teach him life is real.
Quote from Sam
Woody: Were you scared, Sam?
Sam: Are you kidding? I saw my hair pass before my eyes. It was unbelievable. I've never seen anything like it.
Quote from Veggie-Boyd
Sam: These are, uh, trivia napkins. Ever since I got the bar back, I've been looking for ways to say, "Hey, thank you for patronizing me."
Frasier: Oh, Sam, I- I know you wanted to use a great big word there. I think that's marvelous, but I believe what you meant to say was, "Thank you for your patronage."
Sam: Really? What's the difference?
Frasier: Patronage means customers. Patronizing is the way one would talk to a small, dull child.
Sam: Kind of like how you're talking to me right now?
Frasier: Aren't you cute!
Quote from Finally! (Part 2)
Frasier: You know, I agree with Cliff. There's a great deal to be said for discretion. You know, it's entirely possible Rebecca may grow tired of Robin and thus avoid the heartache. Then on the other hand, as one who was cuckolded by a lover deeply trusted, the longer led on, the harder the fall. I'm just not sure that Rebecca can be as strong and forgiving as I was when... that bitch Diane dumped me.
