Guess Who's Coming To Breakfast is the 13th episode of Season 1 of Frasier.


NO SECRETS IN SEATTLE -- In a misguided attempt to deal with the fact that Martin (John Mahoney) is now dating, Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) blabs to his audience about his father's sleepover guest, Elaine (guest star Linda Stephens). Naturally, Martin is enraged by this invasion of privacy.

  • Only episode in which Frasier expresses romantic interest with Daphne.
  • Elijah Wood ("Lord of the Rings") provides the voice of Ethan, who is made fun of at school because he has a 160 IQ, likes reading and the astronomy club; Piper Laurie ("Twin Peaks") is Marianne, whose 24-yr.-old daughter isn't speaking to her because she made her and visiting boyfriend sleep in separate rooms; and multi-Oscar and Grammy winner Henry Mancini ("Moon River") is Al, who dislikes the sound of his own voice.


  • Frasier mentions that his father's 63. Unless Martin's born in early January, he is from 1930
  • Roz agrees to go out on a date with Noel 'the mole', beginning Noel's years of infatuation with her
