Quote from Niles

Niles: No, no, no, this is for kickboxing, I finally reached yellow belt, Dad.
Martin: He-hey, what do you know? I'm proud of ya. No, come here. [high fives Niles]
Niles: You know, it requires a lot of talent. You have to have timing and balance, the ability to strike and instantly retreat.
Martin: So you kick them and then run away?
Niles: Yes.

Quote from Martin

Niles: Oh, speaking of golf, dad, I've become quite the sportsman myself. [hands him certificate] What do you think of that?
Martin: Oh, it's very nice, son. But calligraphy really isn't a sport. More of a craft.

Quote from Frasier

Niles: Listen, Frasier. I know you're trying to be sensitive, but you're not showing this woman any respect if you're not as honest with her as you would be with someone else.
Martin: Right, this is your show. When she gets her own show she can say whatever she wants.
Frasier: Wait a minute. You know what, Dad, you may be onto something there. Gosh, I don't know why I didn't think of that myself. You know what, I'm just going to call Kenny and tell him to give her her own show. They're looking for a replacement for "Let's Go Camping With Dan & Jenny."
Martin: What happened to them?
Frasier: They don't know.

Quote from Frasier

Roz: And don't worry, Chuck Ranberg said he'd take over for the week.
Frasier: Absolutely not, Roz. The man's speech impediment will make me giggle all week long.
Roz: Show a little compassion!
Frasier: Oh, come on, you try dealing with a call screener who says, "Dr. Cwane, we have a kweptomaniac on wine fwee."

Quote from Frasier

Frasier: Hi, Roz.
Roz: Hey, Frasier. I listened to your show for about twenty minutes today, I didn't even hear your voice.
Frasier: Well, I'm playing a diminished role these days. Although, still an important one. I am the glue that holds the show together. Or as Mary said in her intro, "The filling in our little Oreo."

Quote from Daphne

Niles: I think Dad'll be properly impressed when I demonstrate my precision in footwork.
Daphne: Oh. It's very impressive, Dr. Crane. You know, I just remembered the Chihuly needs a good dusting.
Frasier: Daphne, I thought you cleaned that yesterday?
Daphne: Oh, did I?
Frasier: Oh, hello, Niles. What brings you here?
Niles: Here to demonstrate my newly acquired feet - [kicking up] hu-ho! - of fury!
Frasier: Carry on, Daphne.

Quote from Martin

Niles: For heaven's sake, Frasier, why don't you just talk to her?
Frasier: Well, it's a delicate situation, Niles. For God's sake, it's not all that easy. I mean, she is new to the field, she's sensitive, she's eager to please...
Martin: She's black.
Frasier: Dad, please.
Martin: Well, you know damn well that's what this whole thing's about. I don't know what the big deal is, if she's talking too much, just tell her to shut her big bazoo.

Quote from Roz

Roz: Well, it's no picnic working with Gil either. You know that little joke that he makes before every show that his taste buds are insured?
Frasier: Mmm.
Roz: They really are.
Frasier: Oh!
Roz: Guess who had to take the claims photo after he had to eat a hot slice of pizza?

Quote from Roz

Frasier: Oh, dear, there's Chuck Ranberg. Roz, you've got to tell him he doesn't have the job.
Roz: Why can't you tell him?
Frasier: I'm sorry, I can't hear the man speak without just descending into giggles.
Roz: Oh, you are such a child!
Chuck: Hi, guys.
Roz: Hey, Chuck, how's it going?
Chuck: Oh, tewwible, Woz. My wife was in the Cawwibean and she weft me for a Wastafawian.
[Roz starts laughing]

Quote from Frasier

Frasier: You see, I pride myself on being able to communicate with just about anybody, and I couldn't even be honest with you.
Mary: Oh, it's not that easy. You didn't want to disappoint me, I understand. If you don't like the show the way it is right now then that comes first. Like Grandpa Willie used to say, "If the shoe don't fit then that ain't your shoe."
Frasier: You know, as much as I've come to loathe Grandpa Willie, that does actually make me feel a little better.
Mary: You know, I'll let you in on a little secret. All those expressions? I made them up myself.
