Roz has heard a juicy piece of gossip that one of the highly paid stars
on KACL has got to be fired and tells Frasier. After learning that Bulldog
has got a meeting with management, they arrive at the conclusion that
it's Bulldog who has to go. Frasier is telling the rumour the next day
to Father Mike and Bulldog accidentally overhears him. He then rushes
off to see Ned Miller before his meeting and resigns. Frasier then learns
from Roz that the rumour wasn't true and it's not Bulldog that's getting
fired - but it's too late. Later at home, when Martin asks Frasier where
Bulldog was, Daphne senses that Frasier is shrouded in an aura of guilt
about Bulldog and he comes out with the truth - he was responsible for
Bulldog quitting. Martin then demands that Frasier goes to see Ned Miller
and get him his job back even if it means he loses his own. Bulldog then
shows up at Frasier's door - his girlfriend has left him because he's
not on the radio any more. Frasier eventually lets him stay out of guilt
and goes to see Ned Miller. During his visit he learns that it was actually
himself that was going to be let go, but then a phonecall comes through
saying it's actually Ned Miller who is going to be fired.

|Frasier Online Episode Review|
Bulldog gets the spotlight in this episode as he overhears Frasier repeating a rumour that he's about to get fired, giving Dan Butler the first real chance to shine and makes a pretty great job of it too. There are a couple of other funny bits too: Daphne's on-form psychic flashes about Frasier's involvement in Bulldog getting fired, and the scene in Ned Millers office, which together with Niles' amusing subplot about Maris getting kicked out of the cast of 'Cats' make this an entertaining above average episode.
