Frasier: She is nice. Intelligent, accomplished.
Daphne: Well, if you think so much of her why don’t you ask her out?
Frasier: Well, we agreed we wouldn’t pursue things. Frankly, she hasn’t given me any indication since that she’s even had a second thought about me.
Niles: Added to which, if Frasier did pursue her and she rejected him, he could hardly rationalise it by saying she doesn’t know what she’s missing. She would know exactly what she’s missing – she just didn’t miss it!

Kelsey Grammer, Jane Leeves and David Hyde Pierce with another example of the blistering wit in the much-loved Seattle-based sitcom Frasier (1993 – 2004). No other show show has been quoted more in my blog, starting with this one back in the first week.

Line(s) of the Day #Frasier

Frasier and tea leoniSheila: Look… first of all, I know this doesn’t excuse what I did, but I had no idea that you were a friend of Sam’s. I’m a sexual compulsive. It’s how Sam and I met – in group. Look, that night I spent with you – I guess I just kind of fell off the wagon. What I did was terrible. I felt awful afterwards. It ended up being a kind of turning point for me. That’s how it is with addiction; before you can get better you have to hit rock bottom.
Frasier: Yes. Well… I’m glad I could be down there for you.

Tea Leoni and Kelsey Grammer in the hilarious Frasier (1993- 2004). Winner of 37 Emmys, the show tells of a psychiatrist who moves back to his home town before having to let his retired father move in with him..

Gr8at – Hilarious lines from Roz Doyle

Frasier just wouldn’t have been the same without his hilariously down-to-earth producer Roz Doyle. Time then for a Gr8at saluting eight of her funniest lines on one of sitcom’s greatest achievements.

Roz Doyle

Frasier: I’m in Cassandra’s hotel room. She invited me up here after dinner. I’m just not sure what it means.
Roz: What it means? What it means is that even a blind pig finds an acorn once in a while.

Daphne: If you change the paper towels, he likes the flap facing the front. If you change the bathroom tissue, the flap faces the back, don’t ask me why.
Roz: I don’t know how you live with him.
Daphne: I don’t know how you work with him.
Roz: Well, I have learned a trick. When he’s really bugging me, I ask him if he hasn’t lost a little weight. Before you know if, he’s checking his butt out in the glass of the candy machine.
Daphne: Really? I tell him he’s gained weight. He skips dinner, sulks in his room, and I have the whole evening to myself.

Roz: [answers phone] Hello?
Frasier: Roz, it’s Frasier. Look, I need your help.
Roz: Well, I don’t have much time, I’m on my way out.
Frasier: OK, just answer me this: How do you know if you’re on a date?
Roz: Are you alone?
Frasier: Yes.
Roz: Then you’re not on a date.

Frasier: Roz, why is it every time I attempt to have a serious discussion we always end up talking about your sex life?
Roz: Because I have one.

Frasier: And to think I was going to offer you these basketball tickets.
Roz: Well, can’t use ’em anyway. I have a date with this French guy.
Frasier: So that’s it, huh? No Americans left.

Roz: I can’t work with a guy that handsome…! No offense.
Frasier: Oh, none taken. Granted, when it comes to looks, Dr. Webber and I aren’t in the same…
Roz: Species?
Frasier: Well, I was going to say “league,” but “species” is so much more insulting.

Roz : Oh, my God. You have two women?
Frasier: At least.
Roz: And you’re juggling them? And you’re getting jewelry?
Frasier: Why is that so hard to believe?
Roz: Well, I guess since they cloned that sheep, anything’s possible.

Roz: You’ll be happy to know that Clarence is doing a lot better. I just dropped his card off.
Frasier: Clarence?
Roz: Yeah, Clarence the guard.
Frasier: Oh, down at the station, Clarence, oh yes, good. I didn’t know he was sick.
Roz: You signed his get-well card.
Frasier: You mean that wasn’t a birthday card?
Roz: No, he’s in the hospital having a kidney transplant.
Frasier: Oh my God, I thought it was his birthday! I wrote, “Dear Clarence, you’re not getting older, you’re just getting closer to death”!
