“My favorite Frasier moment is from an episode we did called ‘Ham Radio’. It was a David Lloyd episode about us doing a radio play. Daphne and Martin are at home listening and their reactions are hilarious. The radio play just got sillier and sillier. All the characters from the radio station were involved. Bulldog brought a girlfriend with him to be in it and she was dyslexic. So, at the climax of the radio play she screams out, ‘Look out! He’s got a nug!’ It just makes me laugh every time I think about it.”
