Funniest caller

Postby tgirl » Thu Dec 13, 2012 6:32 am

I like the caller who kept hearing voices. 'My radio's talking to me.' and 'Now its giving me orders.' 'It knows my name.'

Who's your favourite caller/s into Frasiers radio show?

The car seller's bit who pretended to be depressed as a ploy to pitch his cars.

The Wife of the fencing instructor on An Affair To Forget.

There was the whole parade of callers on Frasier's day off when he's doped up (esp. the one with whom he role-plays )

By extension of the whole bit, the one who gets put down with the amazing speech starting: 'Roger...at Cornell University...'

Henri Mancini, in Guess Who's Coming to Breakfast, I think, the guy who can't stand his own voice. I don't know why I think it's so funny, I guess most people would find him annoying, but the whiny tone of his voice, and how he goes on and on just when you think he'll stop talking, gets me every time.

What's funny is that he's the author of Moon River that's played during the same episode.

True, I'd forgotten about that! I love that song.

That always puts me in mind of:

Ah yes I'm very much in agreement with these two examples.

Robert: Hi my name is Robert and I'm calling about...
Frasier: And your name is.
Robert: Robert
Frasier: I'm sorry we've already had a Robert on the show today, goodbye.
HAHAHAHA

Frasier: You're on the crane with Frasier Air.

Excellent episode! :D

Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue-husband and wife argue whether or not the wife's girlfriends can watch the game with the guys. Husband will give in if Frasier can answer a football question which prompts Roz to play charades to give Frasier the answer.

She holds up two telephone receivers and Frasier says, " you take your receivers......and line them up......and so on. A great scene of the two of them playing charades on air. When he gets it right, Frasier acts so full of himself - love that one!
One of the best things about watching Frasier is the rewind button!

Hail Mary! I love Frasier's line when that call is done. Roz tells him she was surprised he got it and he says he was surprised she could mime a virgin.

Mad something the car salesman. I don't semember the caller's name but I know that the actor was the guy who played in Third Rock From The Sun.

Madman Martinez :D

I also like 'Brandy' (although that might not be the 'traditional spelling': "What the hell was that?! I've been vaccinated slower!"

The actress whoever it is that played that speaking part was very good! I don't think she could have done it better. :D

I like the one where Roz is crouched down over the phone, talking very fast and low so Frasier won't catch on to what she's doing. She juggles several callers at once trying to talk them into problems they don't really have. A guy who has problems sleeping becomes a " bed-wetting adulterer" and so on. It's a pretty funny scene.

There's one where Frasier is late (although the rest of the episode is sinfully boring) and she inadvertently blurts out that she slept with him, then Frasier comes and by what he says makes things ten times worse.

That's Enemy at the Gate and I agree, that is the only good part of the episode.

Frasier Grinch:
"Bob", who cannot decide whether to go to see his family or fly to Maui. I love when he imitates his relatives in 3 different mocking voices :D

We talk about the turkey. "Boy, that's quite a bird." "Twenty-four pounder." "What time did you have to get up to put that in the oven, Ange?"

Yes, that's good. He sounds like a comedian.
