** And for those wondering, yes, John Cleese won the Emmy that year for his performance in this episode. Ken Levine related [[http://kenlevine.blogspot.com/2010/11/why-john-cleese-never-appeared-on.html Cleese's character was to return in "The Visiting Lecher"]], but had to bow out last minute, and they had to use [=John McMartin=] as an {{Expy}} character.

* In "The Tortelli Tort," Carla must go to Anger Management classes after attacking an obnoxious Yankees fan in the bar. When the fan returns to antagonize Carla, mocking the Red Sox, the Celtics, and finally the Bruins, she does not react. The Yankees fan dejectedly turns to leave...when he is confronted by [[OhCrap three Bruins players]] who'd been sitting in the corner watching his antics, and who promptly invite him outside to "show you some of the things that got me suspended."

** Simon asks Sam and Diane to tell him about themselves; Diane goes first, and starts ''in the womb'' and continues right up to the present. Sam stretches out on the sofa and goes to sleep, while Simon's only remark at the end is that his wife has a skirt similar to Diane's, although he is much more interested in Sam's stories of women throwing themselves at him in almost every city he visited during his time with the Red Sox. Simon then moves on to addressing them jointly:

--->'''Frasier:''' ''[leading Lilith away]'' You know, this happens to her more often than you'd think.



* Frasier's adaptation of ''Literature/ATaleOfTwoCities'' to the bar. He reads off the famous opening lines, and everyone gradually loses interest...until he throws in an interesting twist that comes from Stephen King's ''Literature/{{IT}}.'' "And there was...a BLOODTHIRSTY CLOWN! Who lured little children down into the sewers and SWALLOWED THEM WHOLE!"

to:

* From "I'm Getting My Act Together and Sticking It in Your Face", the RunningGag of Frasier's adaptation "adaptations" of Dickens novels.
** Things start at a low ebb when he compares Rebecca - still in her wedding dress after abandoning her plans to marry Robin Colcord - to Miss Havisham from ''Literature/GreatExpectations''. When no-one gets the reference, he throws out the names Pip, Miss Havisham, Magwitch... and then gets their interest with [[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles "four pizza-loving turtles who practise martial arts in the sewer."]]
** When Frasier's attempt to draw another parallel between Woody letting Rebecca borrow his clothes and car so that she can go out and get her life back together (not anticipating this would involve her flying to San Diego) and Sydney Carton's sacrifice in
''Literature/ATaleOfTwoCities'' falls on similarly clueless ears, he decides to read aloud from his newly purchased first edition to the bar. He reads off the famous opening lines, and everyone gradually loses interest...until he throws in an interesting twist that comes from Stephen King's ''Literature/{{IT}}.'' "And ''

** "Y'know, in the space of the last 30 seconds, we have witnessed deceit, sexual turmoil and sudden senseless violence. It puts me in mind of a passage from... ''Literature/ThePickwickPapers''."
** Other items on the list include ''Literature/OliverTwist: The Wrath of Fagin'' and adding [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles "four pizza-loving turtles"]] to a classic.

** "Y'know, By the time Lilith arrives, she is delighted to hear that Frasier appears to have stoked bar interest in Dickens - until Norm announces that they're all waiting to hear the story of ''Literature/OliverTwist: The Wrath of Fagin''.
--->'''Lilith:''' ... excuse me?\\
'''Frasier:''' ''[embarrassed pause]'' Darling... I've done some things the past few weeks that... I'm not very proud of.
** Frasier gets the last word of the episode after the A-plot reaches a denoument of... well, Frasier himself puts it best:

* At one point in "Swear to God", Frasier tells Sam how he dealt with sexual frustration as a teen: [[{{NoodleIncident}} building a full-sized submarine in the basement.]] One has to wonder how [[{{Series/Frasier}} Marty, Esther, and Niles]] reacted to ''that''. For bonus points, this is never brought up at any point on ''Frasier''.
