Dial M For Martin - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: Niles comes into Cafe Nervosa and Marty has his hands down in this lap. Niles says "not interrupting anything personal, am I?" the shot goes back to Marty, whose arms are now folded.

Secret Admirer - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: Marty is telling the boys that he doesn't want to get involved in their squabble. Frasier has his hand up in the air holding his address book but in the next shot it is down by his side, with no time to change position naturally. (00:06:05)

Hot Ticket - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: During the opening credits Daphne gives Martin the newspaper and he puts his magazine on his little table. As they talk about her photo in the paper, the magazine disappears.

Dial M For Martin - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: Marty is in Cafe Nervosa and Roz comes in; he puts his newspaper aside. The next shot shows his hand is still on the paper; this time the page is different. Through the scene we sometimes see a page of text and sometimes a page of ads.

Taps at the Montana - S6-E18

Continuity mistake: Frasier discovers Niles' bird is dead and throws a dish towel over it. The next shot of the dish towel shows it has changed position, and the third shot shows it back in its original state. No one touched it in the meantime. (00:10:10)

Shutout in Seattle (1) - S6-E23

Continuity mistake: Frasier is off to find Niles and he tells Martin to come with him. Marty puts his chair down as he says "I don't want to go to Niles'" - the shot changes and we see him lower the chair again. His coat in his lap also changes position between these two shots. (00:17:40)

First, Do No Harm - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: Marie and Frasier are sitting on the couch when Marty comes home, and her arms noticeably change position as the shot changes. Then, a few shots later, she has her hands on her legs above her knees, but in one quick shot her hands are wrapped around her knees - without enough time for her to have changed naturally.

Dial M For Martin - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: Frasier comes home to his apartment with a bottle of wine in a paper bag. He takes the bottle out and puts it on the table holding the bag in the other hand, but in the next shot we see the bag is already on the table and he is just placing the bottle down.

Good Grief - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: At the picnic, Bulldog puts his hand on the shoulder of a little girl in a dark pink dress, just before the pinata bashing starts; the next shot shows the same little girl is standing on the other side of the pinata, next to a woman in a blue and white striped top.

Good Grief - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: Marty and Niles are getting off the elevator and Marty transfers his mail into his left hand just as he goes to open the door to Frasier's apartment. When the shot changes to show them coming into the apartment, the mail is in Marty's right hand - there is no way he could have transferred the mail again in such a short time.

How to Bury a Millionaire - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Martin is trying to find some aspirin and appears on the living room mezzanine, John Mahoney is wearing glasses (Martin wasn't wearing glasses at this point). In the next close-up shot the glasses have disappeared. (00:04:40)

Our Parents, Ourselves - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: At the end of the restaurant scene, where Frasier, Roz, Martin and Roz's mother are eating, Frasier puts his crumpled-up napkin on one side of his plate, but at the end of the scene it has mysteriously switched to the other side without being moved by anyone.

Selling Out - S1-E9

Frasier: Roger, at Cornell University they have an incredible piece of scientific equipment known as the Tunneling Electron Microscope. Now, this microscope is so powerful that by firing electrons you can actually see images of the atom, the infinitesimally minute building blocks of our universe. Roger, if I were using that microscope right now, I still wouldn't be able to locate my interest in your problem.

Trivia: The producers were careful not to put stools in Cafe Nervosa, in order to distance it visually from the eponymous bar in "Cheers."

Show generally

Question: Counting his role on Cheers, Kesley Grammar has played Fraiser for twenty years. Is this the record for the longest portrayal of a character by a TV actor?

Answer: It equals the record of James Arness of "Gunsmoke" for the actor who's played the same part on TV NOT in a soap opera. If you include soaps there are two main contenders - William Roache, who's been playing Ken Barlow in "Coronation Street" in the UK since 1960. Don Hastings has been playing Robert Hughes in US soap "As the World Turns" since 1960 as well.
