Main Characters in this Episode
Niles: Judging from some of these song titles, you may be right. "Nanny's Messy Bed" "I Feel Something Great Inside Me" "Bannisters are Fun."
Frasier: You have a wonderful career.
Nanny G: But nothing ever changes! Do you have any idea what it's like to play the same character for twenty years?
Frasier: Oh, this is more than just sex, Niles. This is passion, kismet. A gift the gods bestow on only a chosen few. Wouldn't the real sin be to refuse it?
Niles: Isn't that your old second-piece-of-pie argument?
Frasier: Well, maybe it is, but I haven't had "pie" in six months.
- Goof (continuity error): Frasier's just gone into the kitchen to bring everybody some wine. There's a tray with three wine glasses on the stove. Nanny G trails behind, pours herself a glass, and takes a sip. She then proceeds to come on to Frasier. So as not to get caught up in the moment, Frasier carries the tray out to the great room and puts it on the table. There are now four wine glasses, all of which are empty.
- The "prop room" where Nanny G attempts to bed Frasier is the set from Cheers. They walk down the stairway that was used as the entrance to the bar.
- Nanny G asks Frasier "Do you have any idea what its like to play the same character for 20 years?", a reference to the fact that 'Kelsey Grammar' has played Frasier Crane for 20 years.
- The scenes during Nanny G's show were not shot in front of a studio audience; they were played back on a TV monitor to get a laugh track. The audience laughed so hard that the volume had to be turned down to avoid drowning out the dialogue.
