Author, Author - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: There was an episode in which Martin attempts to end a feud between Frasier and Niles by telling a story about his detective partner. He starts with the line, "I never had a brother...", but in the episode about Frasier's cousin Nikos getting married, Martin's brother Walt was introduced.

I Hate Frasier Crane - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: During the opening credits, Frasier is playing the piano and Martin is going through papers on the table. When Marty says "I don't know, Eddie, must you?" there is something pink lying on the table. The shot goes back to Eddie and then back to the table, but the pink item has disappeared.

Space Quest - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Frasier (and later the others) come back to his apartment to avoid the rain - they shake off umbrellas, and we even hear the storm at the very start of the scene. However there's no rain on the balcony - can't be covered, as we see in "Call Me Irresponsible" during the obligatory sex scene that when it's raining the balcony gets soaked.

The Good Son - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: During the first episode of Frasier there is a painting of some vases in Frasier's apartment which is at the end of the hall leading on to Daphne's Room. In this episode the painting has a red and purple background, however in 'Here's Looking at You' (S1, 2 mins 52 secs) the exact same painting is now red and blue. It remains this new colour for the entire 11 seasons. (00:06:50)

Beloved Infidel - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: Near the start of the show, Roz is in her booth at KACL and takes out her lipstick and compact - we see her uncap the lipstick. Then Niles comes in an Frasier reintroduces them, and we see her uncap the lipstick again.

The Good Son - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the show, when Roz is telling Frasier the mistakes he's made, the clock shows 4:52. However, after she says "you kept referring to Jerry.as Jeff", the clock is reading 4:50.

I Hate Frasier Crane - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: While Martin is saying grace, Eddie is sitting right on his backside staring at Frasier, who yells "will you stop staring!" The next shot, from behind Eddie, shows him noticeably leaning over on one haunch, even though there was no time for the change.

I Hate Frasier Crane - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: Before they begin supper, Marty asks the boys if they still say a prayer before eating. His hands are clasped together in front of him, but in the next shot they are folded over each other.

The Good Son - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the show, when Roz is telling Frasier about Lupe Velez, the wall clock in her booth shows the time to be 3:45. About 5 minutes pass, although the story only takes a couple of minutes, and there is no other action in the scene. The clock actually goes backward after that, showing 3:50 and then about 3:48 in the next shot.

Dinner at Eight - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Niles meets Daphne for the first time she is folding laundry and is holding a tee shirt that switches back and forth from being over her arm to being held in her fingers while they talk.

I Hate Frasier Crane - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: While Daphne is making psychic predictions about Marty's murder case, there is a pencil lying under some photos. In one shot the pencil has disappeared but it reappears again in later shots. The angle stayed the same.

Season 1 generally

Revealing mistake: The view from Frasier's apartment shows the Space Needle prominently in the background, however, the elevator that takes visitors from the ground to the observation deck is frozen in time midway to the top. This was corrected after the first season.

A Midwinter Night's Dream - S1-E17

Plot hole: Niles makes up Frasier's couch to sleep in and when he lies down he lets out a yelp - and pulls a plastic pirate's hook from behind the cushions. Earlier Niles had appeared wearing a pirate's costume but at no point did he have a hook, nor did he go near the couch. His overcoat had been on the floor the whole time so it couldn't have come from there. It would have been difficult for it to get behind the cushions unless deliberately shoved there, which we never saw and makes no sense anyway.

Frasier: And though washing one's hands twenty to thirty times a day would be considered obsessive/compulsive, please bear in mind that your husband is a coroner. Thank you for your call, Jeanine. Roz, whom do we have next?

Show generally

Question: There's probably an obvious answer to this but is there any actual in-show significance to the 'Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs' song heard at the end of every episode? I ask mainly because I remembered there was one show in particular where Frasier unintentionally scars Lilith emotionally and pretty much cements the end of their relationship over a misunderstanding about scrambled eggs. Were there any similar conflicts over a tossed salad?

Answer: In the last episode, they explained that Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs is a metaphor for the mixed-up people to whom Frasier dispenses his radio psychiatric advice.
