‘Martin Does It His Way’

While Frasier worries about writing a eulogy for a much-despised relative, Martin decides to finally finish writing a song and send it to Frank Sinatra.

Quote from Frasier

Frasier: Well, well, well. What can I say about Aunt Louise? What can I say? Louise ... touched us all. In fact, she touches us still. [Frasier dusts off his jacket] Aunt Louise loved to teach us all lessons. You know, it's hard to picture her without hearing her saying, "I'm going to teach you a lesson." What particularly comes to mind, by the very way she lived her own life: she taught us how important it is to pursue our dreams. Whether we succeed or fail, what really matters is that we tried. And now as we say goodbye to Louise, a phrase comes to mind. It was coined by my very own father, "She's Such A Groovy Lady."

Quote from Niles

Niles: I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I don't mean to quibble but it seems like your heart is always going "hidy-hady", "ringy-dingy" or "scooby-dooby".
Martin: Look, I don't need another critic.
Niles: Fine. Perhaps a cardiologist?

Quote from Roz

Frasier: Roz, that was quite a flattering description. You know, just out of curiosity: were you just helping that lady with her fantasy or do you really see me that way?
Roz: You really don't know, do you? Frasier, I am so attracted to you, I always have been. Your looks, your voice.
[Roz climbs on Frasier on his chair] You don't know how many times I've wanted to strip naked and hurl myself at that glass partition like a bug on a windshield.
Frasier: Are you through?
Roz: [smacks his head] Well, ask a stupid question.

Quote from Frasier

Frasier: Dad, I thought we had an agreement: Eddie doesn't roll around on my sofa and I don't throw him in front of a bus!

Quote from Niles

Daphne: Oh, hello, Dr. Crane. Will you be joining us for dinner?
Niles: If it's not too much trouble. It's Maris's night to host her book club and they are more comfortable not having a man there.
Frasier: Yes, apparently Niles makes the ladies self-conscious.
Niles: Well, I sat in on the last discussion and Mrs. Esterbrook-Kindred developed a facial tic every time she had to say the word "Balzac."

Quote from Daphne

Frasier: Oh, bless you, Daphne. Are you sure you're up to coming to the memorial?
Daphne: Oh, it's just a little cold. Besides, in my family, when there was a funeral everybody went. I remember
when Grammy Moon passed on. My brothers had been off on a three-day bender. They couldn't even stand on their own. They were all pissed as newts! But they crawled to that chapel on their hands and knees.
Frasier: Very commendable.
Daphne: Yeah, well, they had an obligation. They were the pallbearers.

Quote from Niles

Martin: All right, let's go.
Niles: Wilson's Meadow is the perfect place. Aunt Louise, you've tormented me for two weeks and finally I've shown you I can do something right.
[After Frasier, Martin and Niles leave the apartment, Niles comes back to collect Aunt Lousie]
Niles: [to the urn] Oh, shut up!

Quote from Frasier

Frasier: Dad, come on. ... Yeah, you're probably right. You just sit there night after night watching TV until the
time finally comes when we collect your ashes and scatter them over that chair, where they'll probably go unnoticed.

Quote from Frasier

Niles: Oh, remember how she always used to complain about the winters?
Martin: Oh yeah, every year she was going to take a trip to the South Pacific. It was her big dream, but would she spend the money? Nooooo. She just sat around whining all the time about how she'd like to be in a warmer climate.
Frasier: My guess is she finally made it.

Quote from Niles

Niles: Oh, remember when this photo was taken, the day Aunt Louise took me to Wilson's Meadow to fly a kite?
It cost her 35 cents and when it got stuck in a tree she made me climb up after it. I fell out, broke my collarbone
in two places. I think that's the only time I saw her laugh.
