Unfortunately, I completely forgot about this episode and so forgot to tape it.

Was Okrand mentioned in the credits?  The "Frasier" writers have been 
making fun of Noel, the Klingon-speaking Trekker station engineer in a few 
episodes.  It's just possible - barely - that one of the writers decided to 
finally do it right and ask Okrand to translate the line.  Whether actor 
Kelsey Grammer was able to pronounce it correctly is, of course, another 

BTW, why was Frasier speaking Klingon at his son's bar mitzvah anyway?  I 
would have thought he would have attempted something in Hebrew.
