Season 9, Episode 22 - Aired May 7, 2002

Quote from Frasier
Kenny: Just wanted to make sure you're relaxed and ready to go... and haven't read today's paper.
Frasier: I read it. Everything from the adoring salute to Sully, to the cartoon of me and Satan doing a jig on Sully's coffin.
Herm: About that, it might be a good idea to steer clear of any on-air references to Sully.
Frasier: On the contrary, I intend to confront this situation head-on. I intend to reach out to the listeners, ease their suffering, and thereby demonstrate what we do best.
Herm: Now, that's the kind of attitude this station needs. Of course, if your ratings are low, I still have to fire you. [laughs] What a crazy business, huh?
Quote from Roz
Frasier: Hello, and welcome from Seattle to Spokane, this is the Frasier Crane Radio Network. We are broadcasting today from the Lilac City where we have just replaced a beloved local icon, Neal Sullivan. Now, Sully did a lot for this city and in my own way I hope to make the same kind of contribution that he did. With that in mind, let's go to the phones.
Frasier: Go ahead, caller. I'm listening.
Caller #1: "Go back to Seattle." [hangs up]
Roz: How was the level on that?
Quote from Frasier
Frasier: Now, now, people, I understand how you might be angry, and there's nothing wrong with venting that feeling, but please stay on the line long enough for me to respond. Go ahead, I'm listening.
Caller #2: "Hi, I'm just letting all the Sully fans know we're boycotting KQZY until he comes back."
Frasier: Now, people, please, we need to talk. We need to move forward. Otherwise, we're just going to be going around and around like the horses on the Looff!
Quote from Daphne
Daphne: I'm finished. It turned out great.
[Daphne goes over to the bathroom and talks through the door]
Daphne: I'm sorry I yelled at you. You were a big help. I couldn't have done it without you.
[A dejected Martin comes out]
Martin: You mean it?
Daphne: Absolutely. Come and take a look.
Martin: Oh, that is sharp. Niles, come look at the table.
[Niles emerges from the bathroom]
Niles: I like the footpads.
