Daphne Quote #180

Quote from Daphne in Come Lie with Me

Daphne: Truth is, I do still think of this place as my home. But I know you'd never be comfortable knowing Joe and I were.
Frasier: I'd be willing to try.
Daphne: I know you better than that. It'll bother you and we'll both be miserable.
Frasier: Why can't I get past this? Oh, it'd just be easier if I could be like my father and pretend you weren't in here making love.
Daphne: Making love? Is that what you think we were doing?
Frasier: Yes, of course.
Daphne: Oh, no. There was nothing like that going on in here.
Frasier: Really? Seems rather implausible. Even if I'd like to believe that - and believe me I really do want to - uh, how can I?
Daphne: Well, how could Joe and I make love? What with, uh, Joe's war injury?
Frasier: Oh. I didn't even know Joe was a soldier. What war would that be?
Daphne: The Falkland Islands.
Frasier: But that was a British conflict and Joe's not...
Daphne: His parents have a summerhouse there.
Frasier: Oh, that's very unfortunate, taking a summerhouse in a war zone. But how-?
Daphne: He was kicked by a sheep.
Frasier: A sheep?
Daphne: Yes, a sheep, spooked by an air raid siren. Work with me.
Frasier: I see. All right, what you're saying is that Joe-
Daphne: Can't.
Frasier: Ah. Well, I suppose that changes everything.
Daphne: Yes, I suppose it does. But just so as we're clear - even though there's no actual lovemaking, Joe and I can on occasion, say, read poems to each other in here at night?
Frasier: As long as you don't read too loudly.

Quote from Frasier

Frasier: She's staying. Turns out they're sleeping together but not having sex. See, they can't have sex because of an injury Joe suffered when kicked by a spooked sheep during an air raid while his family was vacationing in the Falkland Islands during the war.

Quote from Frasier

Frasier: Oh, Niles, why do you even care about those people? In your hour of need they pretend you don't even exist. They treat you like you're a leper, a non-person.
Niles: But I really, really like them. I know, I know. It makes me sound pathetic. But I'm newly separated. These people have been my social circle for ten years. Frasier, they're my tribe.
Frasier: Well, I hate to break this to you, "Waltzes With Snobs," but ... they have left you on the mountaintop to die.

Quote from Fool Me Once, Shame on You. Fool Me Twice...

Daphne: This whole thing reminds me of when I first moved to London. I was very mistrusting of people back then. I was convinced the way to stay out of harm's way was to walk straight with me eyes cast down, never meeting anyone's glance. But finally, I decided that was no way to live. So one day, I just lifted up me chin and took it all in. Well, the change was amazing. There were sights I'd never seen, sounds I'd never heard. A tiny old man came up to me with a note in his hand. He needed help. I realized this was no city full of thieves and muggers. There were people here who needed me. I took his note, read it, and to this day, I can remember just what I said to that man. "That's not how you spell fellatio."

Quote from The Apparent Trap

[After the doorbell rings, Frasier opens the door to Daphne, who struggles to drag Eddie into the apartment]
Daphne: Come on, Eddie. Come on.
Frasier: What's the matter?
Daphne: He was perfectly fine until a block from here. Then he started whining and trembling, like he senses an earthquake or a dark force or - Hello, Lilith - a vortex of evil.
