Cutting down some natter and word cruft. We don't need overly long posts on how the writers messed up or how these characters sucked.

A Big Lipped Alligator Moment is something that breaks the conventions of the work. Daphne saying weird things about her past that seem odd and never get mentioned again is par for the course. Even if this seems more significant than the other tidbits

Also worth pointing out that Niles though Mel was being very reasonable until he lost his patience, his family was being supportive of him and so obviously took his side, and Daphne was the only one who though of her as being a bitch about it. Mel also ended the arc succeeding in the "poor wife gets rescued from brutish husband" narrative she wanted from the divorce—so it's not exactly a case of the show treating her as horrible and wrong. | It's a dream episode. It's not a Big Lipped Alligator Moment episode because it's explained.

Mel specifically went out of her way to cripple Niles' social life by forcing him to humiliate himself in public and drawing out the breakup much longer than he was initially led to believe. While that doesn't mean she shouldn't have been angry, her behavior was still cruel and spiteful. Niles made every attempt to concede to her wishes with the least amount of pain as he could. Mel took advantage of that to go on an understandable, but unjustified vendetta. Not to say that Niles and Daphne were exactly saints here but that doesn’t mean Mel wasn’t wrong. Also. Point of clarification, it was their honeymoon, not their wedding day.
