Bla-Z-Boy - S9-E7

Continuity mistake: When Frasier and Martin are yelling at each other about the mess on the carpet, Marty is holding a red plastic oil container. In one shot there is a noticeable dribble of oil on it, but in the shots before and after, it is clean.

Junior Agent - S9-E10

Continuity mistake: Frasier is in Bebe's office and as she says, "The newest member of Team Crane," her hands are clasped together in front of her and her index fingers are pointed upward, but as the shot changes, her index fingers are folded into her hands.

Don Juan in Hell (1) - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: As Kirby is showing Roz his prom pictures, she sees the picture with his hand on her behind. In the scene her hair on her right changes position in the following shots from on her chest, to slightly behind her shoulder, to completely behind her shoulder.

Wheels of Fortune - S9-E16

Continuity mistake: Frasier and Niles are looking at the salt server Blaine returned to Frasier - in one shot the large envelope, the mailer strip, and the note are on the coffee table - in the next shot the strip has disappeared and the envelope and note have changed position.

Bla-Z-Boy - S9-E7

Continuity mistake: When we first see Marty on the floor oiling his chair, his cane is lying on the floor with the handle end pointing towards the kitchen. When he picks it up a few shots later, it has turned 180 degrees and the handle is pointing towards the door. At no time did he touch it.

Don Juan in Hell (1) - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: As Marty says "Claire says", he is holding his sandwich is both hands. As Daphne turns towards him and says "shut up", he is holding the sandwich in his left hand and his right hand is on the arm of his chair. There was no time for the switch.

Mother Load (2) - S9-E13

Factual error: Simon, having just been kicked out of Frasier's apartment, is trying to convince Roz to let him stay at hers. In the background the set shows a wharf area with at least one tall ship, Alito's Restaurant, Pier 45 Shed A, and Fisherman's Grotto. These are all located at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco, not Seattle.

Bla-Z-Boy - S9-E7

Continuity mistake: After Martin lowers his chair and gets the bag of pretzels it cuts back to Frasier and you can see the bag still on the coffee table. Then it cuts back to Martin and he has the bag. (00:06:16)

Moons Over Seattle - S9-E24

Revealing mistake: It's clear the "Manchester" pub scene was filmed in the United States, as the pint glasses used are American pints and not imperial pints as used in the UK, which are approximately 20% bigger.

The First Temptation of Daphne - S9-E3

Continuity mistake: Martin says that Eddie will find the cricket, and puts him down on the floor so he can begin to search. He places him right in front of the green chair. In the next shot, we see Eddie spinning around on the floor, but the chair isn't visible in the frame like it should be. Instead there's something that looks like a gray stool there.


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?

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: 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.
