* Exploding Frasier.
* By the third act, Frasier is now paranoid that Niles is trying to steal his slot and returns to the studio drugged to the gills. He eventually locks himself in the booth, and chaos ensues as he cuts off one caller, Robert (Tommy Hilfiger) by saying they've already had a Robert on the show (partly because he isn't paying full attention when Robert originally introduces himself and thinks there are two Roberts), dismisses a second caller, Janice (Patty Hearst), who is having in-law trouble as "BORING!", then, after telling the third caller, Marjorie (Creator/MaryTylerMoore), that she is "on the crane with Frasier Air", gets distracted while leading her in a roleplay conversation between her and her boss by suggesting they go through the exercise again but with their roles reversed. Roz is finally able to summon security, who wheel Frasier out of the booth in his chair. Niles tries to pass off the debacle as a simulation of the hazards of drugs and their side effects:

In the third act, a now recovered Frasier returns to work, and thanks Gil and Niles for taking over from him during his indisposition, not taking in the decidedly sinister looks and waves they give him while watching him through the booth window. As Roz introduces his first caller, he presses a button... and his chair '''explodes'''. Cut to [[AllJustADream a still sick Frasier sitting up in bed in alarm.]]

* After a mishap concerning getting out of paying for a parking garage he didn't use, Frasier rushes back to KACL in time to finish his show. Unfortunately, Roz, in her attempts to fill in for him, unintentionally told everyone that she slept with Frasier. When asked about what happened during "the incident", Frasier describes the ''parking garage'' incident instead.
-->'''Frasier:''' Well, it certainly wasn't my finest hour. I got in, realized I made a mistake and then tried like hell to get out. There was a lot of shouting and then a line started to form behind me. You'd be surprised how long 20 minutes can be when you're watching the clock. Fortunately, my brother was there to serve as moral support, and (let's face it) someone to talk to. At least, in the end, I got out of there without paying the four dollars.

* The title character is a bag of flour Niles "adopts" as a child to see how he would fare as a parent. Especially funny when it gets run through with a sword, drop-kicked into the reflecting pool, and eaten by Eddie. And Eddie ripping the 'flour child' apart in puffs of flour as Daphne looks mildly on and declares in an Australian accent, "[[Film/ACryInTheDark 'At dingo's got yer baby...]]"

* In the opening scene, Niles foreshadows the episode's third act by observing to Martin that Frasier knows how to direct a play, but doesn't know how to ''stop'' directing, and predicts that by the time "Nightmare Inn" is broadcast, Frasier will be not just directing, but credited as the writer and playing the lead. Frasier rubbishes this suggestion, then Martin notices that the script is entitled "Frasier Crane's 'Nightmare Inn'"...
-->'''Frasier:''' It's just a working title!
* As Niles predicts, Frasier ends up casting himself as the lead, with the cast rounded out by Roz, Gil, Bulldog, Bulldog's exotic dancer girlfriend Maxine (who cannot attend rehearsal due to contracting food poisoning; Bulldog suspects the Jell-O in which she was wrestling that day had gone bad), and professional actor Mel White. Bulldog insists they change the name of Mr. Wang to Mr. Wing because it gives him the giggles. However, the script is from TheThirties, leading to his reading of Wing's lines:
-->'''Bulldog:''' ''(heavy YellowPeril accent)'' Oh, me no looky, me go very by chop-chop.\\
'''Roz:''' ''(aghast)'' Stop! Chinese embassy on line one!
* Frasier's overdirection during rehearsal (also foreseen by Niles) leads Mel, who is playing six roles with six different accents, to RageQuit. Cue a classic example of WhoWouldBeStupidEnough:

* In the opening scene, Frasier meets Niles and Martin at Cafe Nervosa to reveal that he has been asked to re-create the first ever mystery drama aired by KACL, "Nightmare Inn", in honour of the station's 50th anniversary. Niles foreshadows the episode's third act project's downfall by observing expressing scepticism over the choice of director:
-->'''Martin:''' ''[taking the script from Frasier]'' Oh, don't tell me, I know! Bunch of people get caught in a storm, and everybody's wondering who's gonna be the first one murdered.\\
'''Frasier:''' Exactly! And I'm going
to Martin that direct!\\
'''Niles:''' Oh! So we can stop wondering. ''[sips his coffee as
Frasier looks unamused]''\\
'''Martin:''' What, you don't think your brother
knows how to direct a play, but direct?\\
'''Niles:''' No, the trouble is he
doesn't know how to ''stop'' directing. During our prep school production of ''Theatre/RichardIII'' he drove the entire cast crazy with his constant critiquing. I seem to recall a delay on opening night while our Richard chased Frasier round the dressing room, beating him with his hump.\\
'''Frasier:''' Oh, Niles, it was just a little backstage horseplay to relieve tension! ''[the barista brings him his coffee to go]'' Oh, thank you.\\
'''Niles:''' Mmm. You have an Creator/OrsonWelles complex. By the end of this week, you'll not only be
directing, you'll have re-written the script and predicts that by the time "Nightmare Inn" is broadcast, Frasier will be not just directing, but credited as the writer and playing the lead. lead.\\
'''Frasier:''' I have no intention of performing in it myself. The only re-writing I've done is simply cutting, to get it down to thirty minutes.\\
'''Martin:''' ''[reading the front page as
Frasier rubbishes this suggestion, then Martin notices that takes the script is entitled back]'' "Frasier Crane's 'Nightmare Inn'"...

'''Frasier:''' ''[awkwardly]''

* As Niles predicts, Frasier ends up casting himself as the lead, lead (immediately before fellow KACL employee Ian - who looks and sounds exactly like a stereotypical Scotland Yard inspector - runs into Frasier outside his booth and asks if there's still time to read for the role; Frasier says the part has already been cast), with the cast rounded out by Roz, Gil, Bulldog, Bulldog's exotic dancer girlfriend Maxine (who cannot attend rehearsal due to contracting food poisoning; Bulldog suspects the Jell-O in which she was wrestling that day had gone bad), and professional actor Mel White.
