Guns N' Neuroses - S11-E9

Continuity mistake: Why can Lilith hear what they are saying through the door? In several other episodes, the characters have had arguments or insulted the person at the door without them being able to hear. Yet here suddenly it's possible for her to hear.

High Holidays - S11-E11

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the show, Frasier is explaining to Niles how he was stood up that evening; at the same time he is getting himself a glass of sherry. Niles says, "there was no emergency", we see Frasier repeat the actions to get a glass of sherry all over again.

High Holidays - S11-E11

Continuity mistake: When Frasier asks Martin "Where are your pants?", Marty is holding the ice cream carton underneath, but when the shot changes and he answers, "In the fridge", he is holding the carton by the side.

The Babysitter - S11-E4

Continuity mistake: Frasier is sitting on the couch watching Wheel of Fortune and eating, with a plate on his stomach. As he talks to Niles he places the plate on the coffee table. Niles says "Are those profiteroles?" and Frasier gobbles them up. Then we see Frasier put the plate on the table again.

Guns N' Neuroses - S11-E9

Continuity mistake: After Niles knocks the shoebox on the floor, he goes to put the banana on the table, but pulls back with it still in his hand. When he runs over to inspect the fireplace, the banana is nowhere to be seen.

Guns N' Neuroses - S11-E9

Continuity mistake: Niles stumbles catching the banana and knocks the shoebox off the table and it lands on the floor. The next shot shows a long dark item lying on the carpet - it wasn't there before and didn't come off the box.

Guns N' Neuroses - S11-E9

Continuity mistake: Just after Niles knocks the box on the floor, we can plainly see it through the legs of the chair. When Marty goes to pick it up, it is now out of our range, even though the camera angle remains the same.

The Placeholder - S11-E5

Continuity mistake: In the restaurant, Frasier and Ann are at Kenny's table - Kenny puts his napkin down and leaves the table, while Frasier puts his cellphone away. In the next shot, the napkin has changed position on the table and Frasier is putting his cellphone away again.

Sea Bee Jeebies - S11-E10

Continuity mistake: When Frasier and Roz are in the cafe talking about the See Bees, Roz says something like "Those shows are torture." When she does there are many different shots in a short space of time and if you're quick you can see the coffee mug suddenly jump into her hand without picking it up.

Murder Most Maris - S11-E8

Continuity mistake: In the 8th episode of season 11, "Murder Most Maris", Frasier claims to have been "punched in the face yesterday by a man now dead". When he says this, two nights have passed since the murder. The next day Niles panics at the café and then sleeps for 20 hours. This time Frasier claims he was punched in the face three days ago by a man now dead, when by now it has been at least four days.

Freudian Sleep - S11-E14

Audio problem: Frasier is on the air and is talking to Roz who is in her booth. As he says "Meanwhile, this is Dr. Frasier Crane," we can see his reflection in the glass but his lips aren't moving, even though he is talking.

Freudian Sleep - S11-E14

Continuity mistake: Frasier comes home to find his sherry decanter empty and opens a bottle of wine, which he leaves on the kitchen counter. Niles arrives, wants sherry, and Frasier tells him there is none, saying, "I've opened some wine, help yourself." Niles grabsthe open bottle from the bar area, even though no one had put the bottle back - it should have still been on the kitchen counter.

The Ann Who Came to Dinner - S11-E13

Continuity mistake: In the doctors office, the doctor wheels Ann out and leaves the X-Ray he just put up of her leg. Later in the scene after Martin and Frasier have their conversation, Ann comes back into the room on crutches. When she does, the X-ray that was on the board has disappeared and never returns through the rest of the scene.


Boo! - S11-E16

Continuity mistake: Frasier and Niles are in the hospital waiting area, sitting on the couch. Frasier says, "We must remember," and his hands are outstretched, one on each knee. The next shot shows his hands clasped together, with no time for the change.

Match Game - S11-E18

Continuity mistake: While Niles, Daphne and Marty are watching the video of Cindy's labour, the bag of Marty's cookies change position a few times - from being in his chair to being on his little table, and back again.

I'm Listening - S11-E6

Continuity mistake: Roz is at Cafe Nervosa, sitting with Marty, pretending to be his date. In one shot her hand is covering his, in the next shot her hands are in her lap - but in the next shot, her hand is back covering Marty's.

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?

Caught in the Act - S11-E15

Trivia: When Nanette tells Frasier she's tired of playing her children's show character, she asks him if he knows what it's like to play the same character for twenty years. By this point, Kelsey Grammer had been playing Frasier for twenty years: eleven on 'Frasier' and nine on 'Cheers'.

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.
