** In season 10, when Roz interviews for a new job with another radio station, her interviewer turns out to be one of her (numerous) previous sexual partners. In the interview he makes a great many double-entendres that rely on finding a sexually-charged workplace funny in order to properly land as jokes, something most people wouldn't in our current #MeToo world.

** In "Head Game" when Frasier asks Niles to fill in for him on his show, Niles makes a remark that "I couldn't presume to fill those big floppy red shoes of yours." This episode aired on the 12th of November 1996. On the 23rd of February 1997, the Simpsons episode "Brother from Another Series" aired in which Kelsey Grammer played Sideshow Bob and David Hyde Peirce portrayed Bob's brother Cecil (as a clear and hilarious reference to their roles on Frasier). A key focus of their relationship in the episode was Cecil's jealousy over Bob's success as a clown's assistant (which had actually been Cecil's dream) which included wearing big floppy red shoes (though, as a technical point, the shoes weren't actually that floppy on Bob due to his having been established as having unusually large feet). For bonus points, in the season 11 episode "Boo!", Frasier dresses up as a clown.

** One episode has a boy call in the show asking for advice because he was being bullied for being smart. Frasier's advice is basically "Just hang on, because one day you'll be more successful than them". The kid condescendingly points out that his advice isn't helpful, at which point an annoyed Frasier says that if any of the boy's classmates are listening, they should beat him up. A few things: A) Yes, the boy was rude, but Frasier really didn't give him any useful advice on how to deal with the bullying, B) he's an adult telling children to beat up another child, and C) he himself was bullied for being too smart as a kid, so he comes off as a blatant hypocrite. And the entire scene is PlayedForLaughs.

** Kenny Daly. After an endless series of managers who are introduced with an episode devoted to how the station (and Frasier in particular) deals with this new personality running things, show up in a few episodes more, and then leave...Kenny shows up—and charmed viewers enough so that he stayed for the rest of the show.

* InformedWrongness: Niles in "Room Full of Heroes." While he was drunk and pretty passive-aggressive in his diatribe, it should be noted that nobody even thought to feel sorry for Niles feeling the way he did. After all, he was near tears giving that speech, and it isn't like Martin had never done anything to validate those feelings Niles had expressed.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Maris gets a little of this with the revelation that she was FormerlyFat. Suddenly, her obsession with staying thin and her terror of gaining weight makes perfect sense. The woman's probably been suffering from eating disorders and body dysmorphic disorder all her life. It's rather ironic that neither her husband or brother-in-law, ''psychiatrists'', never realized this.
