When Niles and Frasier are talking and go back and forth describing something and Frasier says Stop! "I may as well have been...", "Well I may as well have been.." :-)

Yeah, it's like in The Gift Horse when they argue about NIles's overpriced gift: "A drop? It's a downpour!" "It's a drizzle!" "It's a deluge!"

They did a good job, for the most part, in reconciling the Frasier years with the Cheers years with one exception. Frasier WAS quite the barfly in Boston, and was much more Martinesque than he was in "Frasier". But give credit. To take a character from such an established and classic series, and retool him in another, is a great feat and not to be minimized.

What always bothered me about this scene is the unlikelihood that Roz's family wouldn't know who Frasier was, because Internet. They really want us to believe they never knew who Roz worked for, the show or Frasier himself? Easy to Google, easy to know he wasn't Roger.

I think it's based on Cyrano's nose tirade : "Tis a rock! A peak! A cape! No, it's a peninsula!"

If you see what I mean.

Frasier's trait of making cheesy, egotistical metaphors about his effect on women (probably, in my mind, to hide insecurity), where he inserts his name into the metaphor, such as 'another ride on the Frasier-go-round', 'rack up a few more frequent Frasier miles' etc - apart from him doing this throughout the show's run, which is itself a good bit of continuity, it's also called back in It Takes Two To Tangle when we find out Frasier has picked this up from Martin: 'first-class passage on the S.S. Martin' etc! Frasier probably heard Martin talking like that when he was a kid and subconsciously absorbed it.

I am on the fence on that one because Martin never uses these metaphors, only this one time. To me it's more likely that Martin has picked this up from Frasier; that happens. Keep in mind that Hester died when Frasier was an adult and out of the house and I don't think that Martin would have dared making these metaphors about other women nor even his wife in front of his own kids while Hester was alive, unless he was asking for trouble...

It's probably been mentioned before, but...

I'm not particularly well versed in Cheers (I need to sit down and Netflix it someday!), but I did notice a minor little connection between the two.... In Frasier, in season 5, episode 17, "The Perfect Guy", Frasier is struggling to find something he can do better than Clint and is stymied at every turn, until the episode ends when Clint turns out to be an awful singer, belting out a horribly off-key rendition "Isn't it Romantic".

in Cheers, in season 9, episode 15, "The Days of Wine and Neuroses", they have a karaoke machine, and Frasier decides to show Cliff and Norm how it's done, with an impressive cover of... "Isn't it Romantic".

Yes, I remember it very well. It's the one where Rebecca gets stinky drunk because deep down she doesn't want to marry her "lover" whom she only loved for his money and he is now broke or so she thinks (he's hidden a money belt in Sam's Desk). In that episode Frasier goes on and on singing very well various classics until Lilith upstages him in his rendition of You're Just In Love. I noticed that apparently Frasier can't sing without smoking a cigarette. Something that I always find puzzling as I can't stand the stench of it. Note that there was a period from the 40's up until the late 60's when almost all the heroes in the movies smoked, often a lot. Humphrey Bogart was a heavy cinema smoker for example. I am glad these days are over.
