Frasier: I mean, it just, I know that you’re afraid to hurt my feelings but I can stand a little constructive criticism. Now, come on, please, what do you think are my main faults?
Martin: Well, let’s start with what you’re doing now. You analyse everything to death. Sam said it wasn’t your fault but you keep digging around and digging around until you drive everybody nuts.
Frasier: [writing in pad] Okay. Dad thinks I am over analytical. That’s great, we’ve got the ball rolling, okay, who’s next? Niles?
Niles: I’m sorry, I’m not entirely sure how useful this exercise is.
Frasier: Niles, I don’t care how you feel about it, you’re going to participate!
Frasier: Well, yes, if that’s what it takes to… [realises] Oh, thank you. [writes it] All right, Daphne, it’s your turn, don’t be shy.
Daphne: Well, if I had to choose, I’d say you are a bit of a fuss budget.
Frasier: Fuss budget! Well, listen, if you don’t mind the substitution, I think maybe “demanding” is more the mot juste.
Frasier: Right, you see, this is very good. Roz, you must have something?
Roz: Well, you are a little full of yourself.
Frasier: Great. Okay, pompous.
Roz: And you do tend to ramble on with the callers.
Frasier: [writing] A tad loquacious.
Frasier: Dad, I all ready wrote that down.
Martin: Underline it!
