PostSubject: Niles - OCD?   Fri Aug 08, 2014 11:50 am

I notice in one of the Season 5 episodes Niles stays in the bathroom for 20 minutes before going to bed with Frasier and has to wait until the timer pings before he can leave. He is said to have made Martin's bed while he was in the bathroom and also moved about numerous times in the night.

I wondered whether these were signs or whether it was just put in for the humour?

Not to mention his compulsive cleaning.

Both OCD symptoms/quirks and humor I'd say

He always wipes a chair with his handkerchief, even after Roz has been sitting there and that offends her. Turns out Lealand has that same OCD and that contributed to lead Martin to believe that he was his biological father.

Yet he is completely oblivious to his obsession as in one episode he refers to OCD sufferers as 'those poor obsession-ridden devils' or some such. Which makes it even funnier of course :-).

Oh, and then there's Momma Mia when he's terrified of bugs and won't admit he has a phobia. OK, not exactly OCD-related, but still pretty obsessive (and hilarious).

In Fortysomething, Martin says Eddie won't do something until Niles scratches him, so he puts on a plastic see through glove to scratch him. And in the pilot, in Cafe Nervosa, he has to wipe the chair and the chair back before sitting down.
