Martin Quote #1052
Martin: It's something I got to tell you how sorry I am for being such a sorehead.
Frasier: Oh, Dad... I'm overwhelmed.
Martin: Tied the bow myself. Just pull on it, it'll come right off.
Frasier: Oh... oh, how unexpected.
Martin: You don't like it.
Frasier: No, no, I- I do. It's just that-
Martin: I got some guy named Eduardo to help me. I figured I couldn't miss.
Frasier: It's divine.
Martin: That's what Eduardo said.
Quote from Frasier
Frasier: Everyone, I would like to introduce you to the newest member of our furniture family!
[Frasier reveals an exact copy of Martin's chair, minus all the duct tape that had been added over the years]
Martin: Oh! Where did you find this?
Frasier: You can't find that, Dad. It doesn't exist anymore. Which is why I contacted a master builder, showed him some photographs, and had him duplicate it. As for the material, I tracked down the original manufacturer, and once I got them to admit they made it, I had them reweave it!
Daphne: It must have cost a fortune.
Frasier: Yes. Ironically, this is now the most expensive piece of furniture in the entire apartment.
Quote from Frasier
Frasier: What the hell's happened?
Martin: Now, don't get upset. I was oiling my chair, trying to get rid of the squeak, and I had a little spill.
Frasier: A little spill? I just this carpet cleaned!
Martin: Well, I'm sorry. It was an accident.
Frasier: Sure, Dad. "It was an accident."
Niles: It was an accident. I saw him step on it.
Frasier: Niles, you know as well as I do, there are no accidents. Just admit it, Dad, your latent hostility toward me has been building through the years, little by little, until you've finally struck the Achilles Heel of my decor, the Berber carpet!
Quote from The Two Mrs. Cranes
Niles: So, now you've met the whole Crane clan.
Clive: Although, Daphne, I noticed in the phone book your surname still is Moon.
Niles: Oh, that must be an old book. Now she hyphenates. It's Moon-Crane.
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.
