** There's considerable FridgeHorror there--that even with Niles secretly being convinced that Martin views him as a failure, he still came to the party dressed as him. In other words, he ''still'' considers Martin to be his hero. Very akin to an abused person still desperate for love and approval from his/her abuser.



* At the end of the season premiere "Don Juan In Hell":
--> "In loving memory of our friends Lynn and David Angell"
** For those unaware. David Angell, the executive producer, along with his wife were killed in the September 11 attack aboard American Airlines Flight 11

** Another subtle one. As they hug, Martin tells Frasier, "thank you." This is a CallBack to the first episode where they get into a fight because Frasier was upset that Martin never verbally thanked him for allowing him to move in with him.

* Season 6's "Visions of Daphne" is one big TearJerker for Niles. He has to learn from Daphne that Donny is planning to propose to her, then she comes to him saying she had a vision that she was meant to be with someone else and he convinces her that she's right and shouldn't accept the proposal. Then Frasier and Martin convince him of how unethical, let alone what a bad friend he would be, if he let Daphne make this decision in his advice so he tries to talk her back into marrying Donny. She's determined to say no, but Donny proposes to her in such a sweet way (in front of all the Crane men) that she surprises them all by accepting. Niles simply walks, heartbroken, out of the room. The pain that Frasier and Martin feel for him is evident.

** At the end, Daphne has a second vision, saying that she saw her dream man with a dragon, which she thinks is ridiculous. The next scene is Niles, unwrapping a present Roz bought him - a ceramic dragon. And both of them are oblivious.

--> '''Niles:''' It's my own fault. I had chance after chance to tell her how I feel and I always kept my mouth shut.

--> '''Martin:''' I'd do anything to fix this for you, son.

* In season 4's "Mixed Doubles," Niles spends the whole episode trying to work up the courage to admit his feelings to Daphne. After both of them are cheated on by their dates, they meet up at a singles bar and Daphne asks him to imagine what it would have been like if they'd met there by chance at some other time in their lives. Niles imagines the scenario, which involves him asking, "What are you doing with the rest of your life?" Daphne laughs and thanks him and says, in a completely friendly manner, "I love ya, Doctor Crane." Niles sits for a moment before saying, completely honestly, "I love you too, Daphne."

* "Don Juan in Hell", the episode where Frasier openly acknowledges to himself how badly he's been traumatized by his failed marriages and relationships with women, to the point where he couldn't handle having a relationship with a very well suited GirlOfTheWeek because he knew how much it would hurt [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption when he inevitably lost her]]. The happy note it ends on, where he puts his demons ([[YourCheatingHeart Lilith]], [[RunawayBride Diane]], his mother, and his hippy first wife) behind him is even mitigated by him continuing to struggle with relationships over the next several seasons.

* In season 3's "Moon Dance," Daphne attends a ball with Niles to prove to his friends that he is over Maris. In the heat of a very passionate dance, Niles admits that he adores her. She says the same back to him and they share their first kiss. When they sit down, Niles is positively glowing until Daphne says, "I had no idea you were such a good actor." The way his face slowly falls as the realization dawns on him is crushing.

** Frasier's breakthrough in this episode really leads to some FridgeHorror TearJerker for the rest of the show and {{Cheers}}. Practically everything Frasier does is out of insecurity about himself to the point you realize he has no emotional or psychological stability. He's constantly afraid and hiding behind his profession and intellect to make himself feel good in every single moment of both shows. Even worse is his relationship and jealousy over Niles whenever he attains something he can't have, meaning that his damage has messed up his brother to a degree. I nominate Frasier Crane as WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds of the freaking century!
