:lol:


This one sounds hilarious but I can't recall the episode that it comes from. Anyone know? :(

I believe that it's from "Head Game" (series 4?). Great episode! :)

The one when Niles gives therpay to Reggie MacLemore the Sonics star, only then to find that Reggie thinks that rubbing Niles' head is what's improved his game.

I love that exchange too, and also the way Martin ends it:
Niles: "My ethics are my ethics. And by the way, where do you think I got those ethics?"
Martin: "Oh, yeah. Throw it back at me. That's real mature!"

I love the one in Momma Mia when Niles is telling him about oedipal issues, denial, etc. and he says "argle gargle google goop" with the most straight face!
niles "...what?"
martin "now you know how it feels; what are you talking about?!" :P

My favourite is 'All his crap is treasured!' when talking about Frasier's stuff, but I can't remember the episode or any details of the scene.

It's the episode where Frasier is missing a tape of his show that Daphne has accidentally destroyed and it turns out that Martin has damaged many of his knickknacks throughout the years. I think.

Oh, yes, I've found it now - from The Two Hundredth - after Frasier interrogates them in the bedroom about the Hall & Oates tape!

Daphne: I'm the one who ruined his treasured collection.
Martin: Oh, all his crap is treasured. But look, don't feel bad. I've broken lots of his stuff.
Daphne: I've never heard of you breaking anything.
Martin: That's because I know how to cover my tracks. Take a look at that fertility god statue over there. It used to be a lot more fertile, if you know what I mean.

I just love the way he says that line.

I wonder how Martin managed to break so many of Frasier's items. I mean, it's not like there isn't room enough to move around them. The only person that broke more than one item in my living room is a maid, and a bad one at that, that I ended up firing (One thing that I was really sore about is a piece of a jade chess set that's practically irreplaceable. I ended giving the whole set away, except for the missing rook of course. It was bugging the hell out of me) . What does Martin do in the apartment when The others are away, that breaks the breakables? Does he play baseball or something?

Quite easy to do when playing fetch with a dog! :roll:

Well, then he would be really stupid to play fetch around Frasier's bibelots when there are dog parks outside. I think, even for Martin that would be particularly crass. Especially if he continued after he broke a couple of items. I know what I would do if I found out that someone I invited was throwing a ball in my living room. You don't want to know.

Just watched The 2000th and my favourite line 'All his crap is treasured' was edited out! Since it's the only funny line in the scene it leaves a flat feeling - like something is missing, in fact!

They just edited out that little sentence? I wonder why?

I can't think of another explanation. Some prude thought it was more than he could stand... I hear, he also edited out the name "Uranus" from the planets... :lol:

Just found a new personal favourite in Cranes Unplugged - 'What's with you and daybreak?' when Frasier keeps announcing melodramatically that they'll leave first thing.

That one made me laugh = a lot of the humour goes over my head because it involves baseball or wine or opera and I have no idea what they are on about - but sometimes I do get it!!
