* BannedEpisode: "Dr. Nora" was pulled from syndication packages after the real Dr. Laura Schlessinger complained. Ironically, it wasn't herself being parodied that Schlessinger took issue with- rather, it was the show taking on her mother, who she viewed as being off-limits due to not being a public figure. The episode ''has'' since reappeared on cable and on Netflix.

** Other examples include [[{{Scrubs}} John C. McGinley]] who appeared as a plumber that turned out to be a former bully, and [[{{Series/Firefly}} Alan Tudyk]] as one of Frasier's neighbors. A very young Creator/ZooeyDeschanel plays Roz' cousin in Season 10.

* ActorSharedBackground One episode Daphne mentioned that as a child she dreamed of being a ballerina. Jane Leeves pursed acting after an ankle injury ended her career as a ballerina.

* ActorSharedBackground One episode Daphne mentioned that as a child she dreamed of being a ballerina. Jane Leeves pursed acting after an ankle injury [[CareerEndingInjury ended her career]] as a ballerina. * CastingGag: Notorious chauvinist "Bulldog" Briscoe played by real-life openly gay activist Dan Butler. ** Daphne's family and its multitude of inconsistent {{British Accent}}s. Particularly on the part of the [[FakeBrit Australian playing Simon]], who loves Mel Gibson and who Frasier once refers to as a "[[TheThingThatWouldNotLeave boomerang]]." ** In one episode Frasier and Niles try to help a former Shakespearian actor Jackson Hedley revive his theatrical career by producing him in a one man version of ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', but [[spoiler:they realize to their horror that he's actually a terrible actor, who does a laughably overwrought performance of the play]]. The gag is that Hedley is played by Creator/DerekJacobi, an acclaimed Shakespearian actor. ** In the penultimate episode, "Crock Tales", Rosie Perez guest stars as a ballerina.Lizbeth. Perez was originally going to be Martin's physical therapist and housekeeper instead of Jane Leeves.

* FunctionalAddict: Creator/KelseyGrammer's personal problems became such a problem that the cast and crew staged multiple interventions and even wrote DayInTheLimelight scripts for other characters so that he could get treatment. Despite it all, behind-the-scenes reports say that while Grammer would spent most of the time in a haze, he'd snap into character and perform with full energy before shutting down once the cameras cut.

** Jane Leeves was cast as Holly in the ''[[Series/RedDwarf Red Dwarf USA]]'' pilot. That never had a chance of getting picked up, but if it had, someone else probably would have been cast as Daphne.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The show generally averts this, but it does come up every once in a while, as noted in TechnologyMarchesOn above. Other ways include the Crane boys' celebration of the Millennium New Year, and a reference to Music/PearlJam back in the first season. [[note]]The second one is relatively minor thanks to the band's longevity, but they're no longer the hitmakers they were in the early '90s.[[/note]]

::Humor heightened by the fact that Nanny G had appeared three times, once on ''Series/{{Cheers}}'', twice on this show, [[TheOtherDarrin each time played by a different actress]]. ** And the episode with Sir Creator/DerekJacobi, who essentially plays Creator/PatrickStewart playing [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Data]] doing Creator/WilliamShakespeare. Frasier is upset over the man he idolized being a ClassicallyTrainedExtra (which Jacobi actually ''is'', and he won a Guest Actor Emmy for the episode), but it turns out he really is [[BadBadActing a terrible actor]]. And to top that off, take into account Kelsey Grammar's guest stint on [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]]. And [[HilariousInHindsight now that Jacobi himself has played]] [[Series/DoctorWho The Master]]... let's just say this episode ''lives'' on RealitySubtext. ** Niles and Daphne have a son named David in the series finale, named after producer David Angell who died in the 9/11 attacks. ** Diane Chambers twice in dream sequences, once in a season 3 makeup episode. Shelley Long and Kelsey Grammer had an on-set rivalry on ''Cheers'', but they made up in the course of filming the episode. ** In "Head Game", Niles becomes the shrink to a famous basketball player. This was interesting as the plot was meant for Frasier, but as Kelsey Grammer was being treated for his alcoholism he was unable to fulfill the role.
