The producer for this programme, Christopher Lloyd, is often confused with the Christopher Lloyd from Taxi and the Back to the Future Trilogy.

The first caller to Frasier's radio show is called "Bob"

The first ever order at cafe nervosa by Frasier is two cafe latte supremos.

When Niles cleans the chair with the hankercheif. This was James Burrows' idea to add a more fussiness to the character of Niles.
