A pie! It was Diane who threw it, aiming at Sam, but he ducked. I loved that.

I think there was also an episode where you saw Vera's feet.

Maris, kind of lost her apeal for me, after I dicovered she was sleeping with the marriage counselor.

Mel, I just hate her.

Daphne wins! Well, for me.
Wow, between school and basketball, when am I...going to be able to watch Frasier!!! Oh, don't worry I'll make time.

I really wold vote for Daphne, because they are a good couple and I enjoy seeing them together, but it was really funnier when Niles was married to Maris because as some said the storries were funny on perhaps why she couldnt be at a certain event. Also when Niles was married it had a lot of secret Daphne jokes like, I believe in S2 when Niles starts smelling her hair and he says "Is that forbidden?" and Frasier says "In every sense of the word."

I voted for Daphne, because even though I like the stories about Maris, Daphne make Niles happy! :)

I doesn't look like Mel was very popular. I can never think what Niles saw in her.

I used to think of Mel as a creepy little koala....but as Daphne so elegantly put it, as to why Eddie's favorite Beatle would be George...."I don't know why." :D

What Niles saw in Mel was she was exactly like Maris! She was comfortable to him. Plus she was a neat freak like him.

I have to say Daphne, she makes Niles truly happy and that's enough for me. Maris was a great plot device, but I certainly don't prefer her as Niles' wife. I always hated Mel from the first time I saw her...however, while I was rewatching season 7, I discovered an episode that I had never seen before and it was the one where Mel expresses her true feelings and love for Niles to Daphne. After watching this and knowing what Niles was going to do to her in just a few episodes, I couldn't help but feel sorry for her...

Obviously you have to say Daphne - she was witty and incredibly hot!.

Maris was a cool character - every show you learn another amazing fact about her. In the end the character itself got so unbeleivable that they couldn't find anyone to play such part.

Mel was annoying - part of the character i suppose.

I chose Daphne because of the Summer between seasons seven and eight all I could do was think about Daphne saying, "Fasten your's, Niles!" Awe...So remantic!

The jokes and stories about Maris were great, but Daphne is so much better and Mel just annoyed me as much as Donny did.

Niles was best with Daphne BUT it was better when he was pining for her. It was much funnier

I totally agree!
Actually the fun between them was over when they got together.
But nevertheless... in all other episodes I enjoyed their romance most of all.

So Daphne it is! :wink:

hard quiz..

the getting together of daphne and niles sort of killed 'independent niles'

(hope there's seinfeld fans here to appreciate that..)

Daphne.
Maris dislikes public displays of rythmn.
Mel likes public displays of Niles.
Daphne just dances with Niles.

No Daphne,no Moon Dance.
So there we are. :D

I went with Daphne. Specifically I liked Dapne best in seasons 3-7. But 8-11, I don't like Daphne or Niles' character as much. I tend to like the humor they use when Niles obsesses over daphne earlier on.

Daphne. I thought the Maris-era Niles was funny, but I really liked Daphne. And I couldn't stand Mel.

Maris, just because the story starts with Niles battling the neuroses!
I love Daphne to bits, but less seems to be more for me. Mel can get stuffed in my opinion.
