Phoning It In
Roz’s mood grows worse by the hour after repeatedly forgetting to take her radio earphones off before standing up to leave the booth, yanking them jarringly from her ears. To make matters worse, Frasier can’t stop bragging about his bespoke new wireless headset, while simultaneously refusing to allow anybody else to try it on(”I’m sorry people, but these form-fitting earpads have been tailored by the finest Swedish artisans to fit only my auricles.”) as he walks freely around the station, ultimately forgetting to take it off during a trip to the men’s room and loudly broadcasting his activities to all of Seattle, while a paralytically whiplashed Roz cringes on the floor several feet from her console. After a successful dynamite fishing trip, Martin and Duke begin discussing what other routine activities could be improved by the high explosive. By the end of the day, most of McGinty’s has been destroyed, as well as numerous parked cars outside and the subway tunnel running underneath it, but the boys have almost mastered dynamite billiards, dynamite darts, and dynamite toilet plunging. Niles desperately attempts to hide the fact that he’s allergic to Daphne’s new perfume, bolting across the room to violently sneeze every time he subtly sniffs her hair.
