Episode Summary

EDIT
Frasier refuses to comply when the new station manager mandates that on-air talent must read commercials during their programs. Frasier leads his forces to "The Black Tower" to protest, reckoning that the might of the on-air talent will force management to accede to their demands.

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (4)

      • The closing credits play to an accompaniment of the usual theme song 'Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs', only this time sung in Spanish by Kenny O'Brien.

        This marks the only time when the theme song is not sung by Kelsey Grammer.

      • Frasier: (Rallying the on-air talent to Kenny's defense) ...and you, Tooty. Who was it that just doubled the Story Time puppet budget?

        It's a little strange that Tooty would use puppets on a radio program -- although it's possible if she has kids in the studio. Edgar Bergen was often kidded about being a ventriloquist on radio, although with a live audience, it made sense.

      • After Frasier makes his announcement, Roz tells him that Kenny cut him off the air. However, the ON THE AIR sign was still on.

      • Tom McGowan, introduced in this episode in the role of Kenny Daly, also appeared in the 1993 film Sleepless In Seattle with David Hyde Pierce (though they had no scenes together).

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Niles: This place is the hottest new thing in fusion cuisine.
        Frasier: What cuisines are being fused?
        Niles: Polynesian and Scandanavian. It's called 'Mahole-Valhalla'.
        Frasier: Well, perhaps there's a reason why God put those two countries so far apart.

      • Kenny: I'm just a huge fan. I only had this reaction once before. Did you ever hear of Norman Mailer?
        Frasier: Of course, the author.
        Kenny: Oh, no, no, I'm talking about the drive-time guy, worked out of Tampa. "Norman In The Mornin.'" So funny you pray for traffic.

      • Frasier: Hello, Seattle. The people who know me best will not be surprised by what I am about to tell you. I... am not a man who betrays his principles. I am not a man who misleads his listeners and I am not a man who will shrink from a fight. Today I find myself in a fight over the content of my show. But rather than truckle to the forces of commercialism, I've decided to take a stand on principle, even if it means th--
        (Roz walks in)
        Frasier: I'm not on the air, am I?
        Roz: They put on "The Best of Crane."
        Fraiser: How much did I get out?
        Tape playback: Hello, Seattle. The people who know me best will not be surprised by what I am about to tell you. I... am not a man.
