* CatchphraseInterruptus: Frasier's catchphrase from ''Series/{{Cheers}}'' ("You will rue the day you did that!") only appeared once in ''Frasier'' in "Look Before You Leap", and it got cut off by Niles.
-->'''Frasier:''' No, Niles! You canít leave me now, I need you more now than ever.
-->'''Niles:''' Oh, give it up. No one whoís followed your little ďtake a leapĒ philosophy has ended up even remotely better. I donít care what youíre saying, Iím going to Maris.
-->'''Frasier:''' You will rue the day- !
-->'''Niles:''' ''(interrupting)'' I donít care! Niles gotta have it!

* BreakTheHaughty: In a manner of speaking, Frasier does this to himself. In one episode, he and Niles cheerfully toast to having impossibly high standards (which makes the overhearing Martin do a facepalm with both hands; it would seem his speech at the end of the episode "Dinner at Eight" [[AesopAmnesia didn't sink in after all]]). This comes back to bite Frasier in the butt when he and his family and girlfriend go on vacation in Belize. No thanks to his aforementioned impossibly high standards, he ''can't'' have a good time.

** Frasier, in a rant about how people in Seattle have no etiquette during the rain:
--> "They buy huge umbrellas that are too big to walk around, so you have to walk in the street! And then they drive so close to the curb that they splash you with water! AND THEY WEAR BROWN SHOES WITH WHITE SOCKS!"

* lifeImitatesArt: OPne episode sees Frasier and Niles publicly endorsing an (inferred) Democratic candidate for office,[[note]]As reaction against Martin's TV "man of the people" appearance, endorsing the rival (inferred Republican) candidate, a man of illiberal views[[/note]] with Frasier stressing in TV adverts that their man is the OnlySaneMan. Frasier is then absolutely horrified when their sane politician casually lets drop that he was once abducted by aliens. In RealLife, a Democratic politician from Georgia once filed a UFO report and has since said he is "open-minded" on the existence of UFOS and possible alien life. Obviously [[UsefulNotes/JimmyCarter a man with ideas like that]] was too flaky to ever get elected.

* {{Homage}}: long-running radio format show ''Radio/DesertIslandDiscs'' is referenced in one episode where Frasier challenges Niles to name the music and luxury he'd take to a desert island if stranded there. Although originally a Creator/{{BBC}} show, the format is licenced for use in the USA and is broadcast on national radio from Houston, Texas; the premis is that a famous or notable person is interviewed at length about their choice of music and a suspicion is there that some guests aren't above making pretentious or upscale choices, to advertise their erudiotion. Of course Frasier and Niles would want to be guests; Niles nominates, without hesitation, a list of very classy classical pieces.
