Martin Quote #670

Quote from Martin in Dinner Party

Frasier: Yes, but do you think we spend too much time together?
Martin: What kinds of questions are these? You're close. Lots of brothers are close.
Frasier: Yes, I suppose you're right about that. I mean, the Gershwins, the Wright Brothers.
Niles: I told you we were getting upset over nothing.
Martin: [laughs] Course, then there were the Collyer brothers.
Niles: Collyer brothers?
Martin: Oh, yeah. A couple of nutsos that shared an apartment in New York their whole lives. They even built a maze out of newspapers in there that only they knew how to get through. It collapsed on one of them and the other one just sat there with the dead body until the neighbors complained about the smell. [laughs] Pretty crazy story, huh? You recycle right, Niles?

Quote from Frasier

Niles: This is absurd. Why don't we just call Allison up and ask her what she thinks is so strange about us? We can both get her on an extension.
Frasier: Better yet, why don't we just get on a bicycle built for two, ride over there and ask her what's so strange about us.

Quote from Frasier

Niles: You see, she never said odd. We're getting upset over nothing.
Frasier: Nothing? Is there a good end to that sentence? "Personally, I think the whole arrangement is a little..." What? Charming?!

Martin: I remember the first time I ever drove a moon crane. Damn near rolled it into the Sea of Tranquility.

Quote from The Good Son

Delivery Man: Where do you want it?
Martin: Where's the TV?
Niles: It's in that credenza.
Martin: Point it at that.
Delivery Man: What about this chair?
Niles: The chair? Here, let me get it out of your way.
Frasier: Niles. Niles, be careful with that! That's a Wassily! Oh. Dad, as dear as I'm sure this piece is to you, I just don't think it goes with anything here.
Martin: I know. It's eclectic.
