Frasier (Kelsey Grammer) tries to resist participating in office gossip about who may be fired next at the radio station, but he can't help assuming that Bulldog Brisco (guest star Dan Butler) will be canned. Unfortunately, Bulldog overhears Frasier's speculation and takes it upon himself to resign after ferociously telling off the station manager, Ned Miller, played by Emmy-nominee John Glover ("An Early Frost," "Nutcracker: Money, Madness and Murder"). Jay Leno ( "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno") provides the voice of Don, a caller with a weight problem who has difficulty hiding the fact that he's calling from a car phone in a fast food order lane.

Niles: So I just had to get out of the house. Maris' Junior League is rehearsing their spring musicale. This year, they're doing "Cats". For the past week and a half I've been watching two dozen underweight, tightly-pulled women in leotards crawling around the music room meowing. I'm telling you, Frasier, my allergies are acting up.

Niles: No, no, really. You have no idea how vivid the experience is. As God is my judge, I swear Mrs. Presley Bismouth was ...

What a Bulldog!
23 September 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This was pretty pedestrian, but the sports guy, Bulldog, is so crazy that it was quite delightful. He is a bonafide maniac. We also get to meet a few of the quirky characters at the station, for example, the road reporter who shouts because he has to talk over helicopter blades, even when they are not there. The plot is quite far fetched but it's a good deal of fun.
