Quotes and Trivia[]


C.C.: (Referring to Fran's inability to speak) Oh, this is a dream come true. I feel like I have died and gone to heaven.
Niles: I have that dream, too, but you go in the other direction.

Dr. Link: Oh, by the way, uh, her adenoids are quite remarkable. I'd remove them, but I'm afraid her head might cave in.

Maxwell: Oh, um, uh... Doc, sir. Perhaps while you're in there, if it's not too much trouble, you could have a look at her adenoids?
Dr. Link: Why? Are they bothering her?
Maxwell: Well, not so much her...

C.C.: I can't show up without an escort!
Niles: Why don't you just inflate one like you usually do?

C.C.: Dear Niles, always so witty... especially for a servant.
Niles: (Chuckles) At least when I offer something, people take it.

  • When they were taking Miss Fine from the room to go to surgery and also when they were bringing her back, the railing on the bed was down. Don't you think that the hospital should have put the railing up so she didn't fall off the bed after the drugs?
