Frasier Quote #1907
Niles: It looks like I have some competition for this luncheon. An Alistair Mowbray doubled my bid to five hundred dollars. I've heard that name before...
Frasier: Yes, it sounds familiar to me, too. Wait a minute, isn't he that young, ruthless software tycoon?
Niles: Pfft. Great.
Frasier: Well, it's no use competing with those deep pockets. But, you know, Niles, this vase here deserves a second look.
Niles: Wait a minute. Mowbray, wasn't that the nom de plume you used in prep school for your society column?
Frasier: What a remarkable coincidence.
Quote from Frasier
Frasier: Daphne, is that university library open all night?
Daphne: I think so, why do you ask?
Frasier: Oh, for God's sake. Do you think I'm going to let my little brother humiliate me tomorrow?
Martin: What are you talking about?
Frasier: Dad, he is smarter than I am. Niles will be sitting there rambling on to the geniuses about the cosmos, black holes, matter, antimatter, and I won't matter at all.
Quote from Niles
Niles: What is this, Daphne?
Daphne: I'm chatting on-line with Donny. [the computer beeps] Oh, what's he saying?
Niles: Er, [reads] "I can't wait to come home and see my wittle Engwish cwumpet." Apparently he has some sort of typing impediment.
Quote from Daphne
Daphne: I still can't get over how much they've spent at that auction.
Martin: Oh, they've always tried to one-up each other.
Daphne: I suppose all brothers are like that. Mine certainly were. Everything was a contest. Who could the run the fastest, jump the highest. They even had this strange one where they'd take little brother Michael, put him in a potato sack and see who could roll him the farthest over the frozen lake out back. Oh, they loved that game. Until that year the spring thaw set in early and poor Michael went right through the ice. Oh, they caught hell for that one, they did. Caught it worse a week later when Michael's toe finally fell off. Michael cried and cried until they told him to put it under his pillow for the toe fairy. Then when he got five quid for it, why it was all they could do to stop him from sawing off the rest of them! [laughs]
Martin: [shouting to Frasier and Niles] What's keeping you guys with that box?!
