* BookDumb: Anybody without an Ivy League education, according to him and Niles. Once, he sniffed haughtily at someone's Stanford education, saying, "Well, if you have to go to school on the West Coast..."

* AmbiguouslyJewish: Played with. She celebrates Christmas, but still insists on a ''mohel'' and goes to pieces during Frederick's Bar Mitzvah.

Added DiffLines:

* BrilliantButLazy: Daphne's appraisal of him. Frasier denies Simon is the former, but Simon is pretty wily and when asked to pretend to be a rich software mogul, he's talks convincingly about data encryption and security software.

Added DiffLines:

-->'''Bebe:''' ''(after Frasier fires her)'' Next time you need a deal made, call the Dalai Lama. A long time ago, I had to make a choice between being a good agent and a good person, because trust me, you can't be both! So forgive me if I don't have time to make everybody warm and fuzzy. I am just too busy spending every waking minute pouring any drink, pulling any shameless tricks I can to make my clients' dreams come true! '''''I am a starmaker!'''''

* ObliviousToLove: Didn't seem to notice Niles' crush on her at all. Janes Leeves claimed Daphne knew all along, but that's just her interpretation.

* DamnedByFaintPraise: Niles is often on both the receiving and giving end of this.
-->'''Bulldog:''' Hey, Dr. Doolittle! I heard your show. It didn't suck!\\
'''Niles:''' Ah. "[[SarcasmMode Dear Diary...]]"

Added DiffLines:

* {{Malaproper}}: Constantly mangling the names of various "classy" things his sons are into, such as the time he thought "''An Evening With NoelCoward''" was about ''TheThreeStooges''. And then there was the time he tried singing along to GilbertAndSullivan with the boys and mistook "''Many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse''" for "''The many-dimpled backside of a scary hippopotamus''".


Added DiffLines:

* LikeParentLikeSpouse: There's something oddly oedipal about him being into goth girls as a teenager.

* ParentsArePeople: While he clearly loves his sons, he's not exactly father of the year material; it's made clear at several points that there's plenty of responsibility on his part for the difficult relationship he has with Frasier and Niles, having rarely made much of an effort to connect with them before the series started and spending more time at his favourite bar than with his sons.
