  • (Frasier's final farewell to his listeners on KACL after reading Ulysses.) Frasier: I've been thinking about that poem a lot lately. And I think what it says is that, while it's tempting to play it safe, the more we're willing to risk, the more alive we are. In the end, what we regret most are the chances we never took. And I hope that explains a little this journey on which I'm about to embark. I have loved every minute with my KACL family and all of you. For eleven years you have heard me say, 'I'm listening.' Well, you were listening too. And for that I am eternally grateful. Goodnight, Seattle.
