* DitzySecretary: One episode has Niles hire a mobster's girlfriend as a receptionist because she's incompetent at every other job she's had. She tries to put Frasier on hold and hangs up on him instead. The only reason he hired her was because the mobster asked Frasier to recommend that she marry him, but he refused after she told him of several of the mobster's negative traits, including refusing to allow her to get a job due to her incompetence.

* SurrealThemeTune: "Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs," sung by Kelsey Grammer, left many viewers scratching their heads. WordOfGod is that [[http://laughingsquid.com/the-story-behind-frasiers-tossed-salad-and-scrambled-eggs/ it was meant to symbolize the mixed-up minds of Frasier's callers]].

* PrenupBlowup: Niles during his divorce describes the depths to which Maris would stoop for the trial.
-->'''Niles:''' When we were courting, I sent her a Valentine that said: "You're the girl my heart adores, everything I have is yours". Now they're calling it a pre-nup.

* SomebodyDoesntLoveRaymond: In the episode "The Focus Group," 11 people gave Frasier good reviews while ''one'' person gave him a bad review. Apparently, 11/12 isn't good enough for Frasier and his efforts to find out why the guy doesn't like him ends with Frasier crushing the man's hand and burning down his newsstand.

* RevisitingTheColdCase: In one episode, Martin digs up a murder case he was unable to solve as a police officer. He tries looking into it with the help of Daphne, Frasier, and Niles. While he's out of the room, Frasier proposes an unusual but plausible solution to the murder and suggests rearranging the crime scene photos to inspire Martin to come to the same conclusion. It works and Martin manages to solve the murder but the actual solution is not the one Frasier came up with.

* BestialityIsDepraved: Humorously referenced in the episode "The Innkeepers:"
-->'''Frasier''': [[AmbiguousSyntax That man does things with eels like you wouldn't believe!]]\\
'''Martin''': I arrested a guy for that once.

* SadlyMythtaken: A rare case of Frasier fudging (or at least not being characteristically pedantic about) a classical reference; he refers to a hot day as "like the "Ninth Circle of Hell". This is a reference to [[TheDivineComedy Dante's Inferno]], where the Ninth Circle is described as being incredibly cold. It was referenced correctly in another episode with cold weather, to boot.

** In a famous episode, Frasier and Daphne are sued by jilted super lawyer Donny Douglas, for "breach of (marriage) contract" (Daphne's last-minute refusal to marry Donny) and "tortious interference in a private contract" (via Frasier's meddling). Breach of promise of marriage is not grounds for a suit anymore in most jurisdictions. Washington state had also ended punitive damages in suits at the time Donny sought them in his. It also could only be applied against the man who broke his promise to a woman, never against a woman who broke her promise to a man.[[note]] Because women in the days when this tort began typically did not work, they were thus reliant on men for support, and so this amounted to a promise that they would care for them financially that was broken, which is cause to sue someone in similar cases to this day.[[/note]] Also, it is incorrect terminology, since Daphne had never actually entered into any contract. Donny, a lawyer, should have known he himself could be sued for doing that (it's called abuse of process). It's also not "tortious interference" for someone to urge a would-be bride to not go through with the marriage (which is not a contract by itself).
