Niles Quote #248

Quote from Niles in Duke's, We Hardly Knew Ye

Martin: But that's life, huh? You move on. Only a fool tries to fight it.
[Niles rushes in]
Martin: What are you doing here?
Niles: I'm here to stop the demolition. What are you doing here?
Martin: We came to say goodbye.
Niles: You may not have to. I've alerted my lawyers. I intend to stand here and face down the bulldozers. I'm prepared to take this thing to the highest court in the land.
Frasier: Niles, you don't have to do that. I've had a discussion with Dad. He forgives us.
Martin: Sure, son, don't worry about it. It's okay.
Niles: Is it really okay? I think not! Because today it's Duke's, but tomorrow, it's Moe's. And the day after that, it's
Ernie's Tap Room. See, I'm not just here for you, Dad. I'm doing this for every little guy out there who found some
solace at the end of a hard day by bellying up at his neighborhood bar. I'm here to show faceless corporate
America they can't just walk in here without so much as a "How do you do" and shove the little guy aside. Even when I'm that faceless corporate America. I'm here to fight the good fight, to show those sniveling rat-faced heathens there's still some fury pounding in the heart of John Q. Public!
[A wrecking ball smashes through the window. Frasier and Martin beat a hasty retreat]
Niles: On the other hand, who am I to stand in the way of progress?


 ‘Duke's, We Hardly Knew Ye’ Quotes

Quote from Niles

Niles: Duke's was his whole life.
Frasier: Well, Niles, there's nothing we can do about it, really. You know, look at it this way: we're actually doing Dad a service, stopping him from going out and drinking. And the other policemen as well. Maybe we're even performing a community service. Men with guns will have one less place to go and liquor up.
Niles: There's always Roz's place.

Quote from Frasier

Frasier: This is fantastic! What say we go celebrate with a nice dinner at an exclusive boite?

Niles: Too bright.
Frasier: Papillion?
Niles: Too crowded.

Frasier: How do we live?

Quote from Frasier

Daphne: Hello, Dr. Crane.

[Niles sniffs Daphne]
Niles: Is that "Forbidden"?
Frasier: In every sense of the word!
