It's been eight years since Martin moved in with Frasier, and the realization of that fact has irked Frasier. This sparks a series of spats between the two, which comes to a head when Martin accidentally ruins the carpet. Frasier's belief that "there is no such thing as an accident" leads him to accuse Martin of a sub-consciously malicious act. However, when Frasier unwittingly burns Martin's favorite chair, the shoe ends up on the other foot. Written by Anonymous

In the opening scene Niles (David Hyde Pierce) is playing a Shubert piece on the Piano. This is the same piece used in the intro for the NBC comedy Wings (1990). Wings shared several staff members and a handful of cast members with Frasier over the years including David Angell. This was a tribute to David Angell who had died 2 months before in the 9/11 terrorist attacks when his plane crashed into the North Tower. See more »


Martin's (John Mahoney) chair appears to be in pieces even before it hits the sidewalk. Since the chair had to be dropped from a safe height, the chair was probably separated to ensure it would be wrecked when hitting the sidewalk. It could also be a result of it having to be reused in multiple takes. See more »

Martin: Yeah, I was afraid if I left him home, Frasier would set him on fire and throw him off the balcony.

Dr. Frasier Crane: [to Niles] You see what I'm putting up with?
Dr. Niles Crane: Are you going to let this go on forever?

Eight Long Years
27 October 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Hostility abounds when it is realized that Martin moved in with Frasier eight years previously. Frasier sees this as a representation of his failure to attract a mate. There are some tense moments, culminated by Frasier accidentally throwing Martin's chair off the balcony.
