Frasier (1993)
Dr. Frasier Crane, a successful Boston therapist, moves to Seattle to get a new start on life; he has a radio talk show, which he uses to relay his wit and wisdom to others, but at times he struggles with his own problems with his salt-of-the-earth father, his pretentious brother and his friends and co-workers.

Act One.

THE JOB:

Scene One -KACL

The Frasier Crane Show. Dr. Frasier Crane, the host, is at his console,

admonishing a caller; Roz Doyle, his call-screener, is in her booth.

Frasier:
[firmly] Listen to yourself, Bob! You follow her to work,

you eavesdrop on her calls, you open her mail. The minute

you started doing these things, the relationship was over!

[polite] Thank you for your call. [presses a button; to Roz]

Roz, I think we have time for one more?

Roz speaks in a soothing radio voice.

Roz:
Yes, Dr Crane. On line four, we have Russell from Kirkland.

Frasier:
[presses a button] Hello, Russell. This is Dr Frasier Crane;

I'm listening.

Russell:
[v.o.] Well, I've been feeling sort of, uh, you know,

depressed lately. [Roz looks at the clock] My life's not

going anywhere and-and, er, it's not that bad. It's just

the same old apartment, same old job...

Roz taps on the glass of her booth and motions Frasier to wrap it up.

Frasier:
Er, Russell, we're just about at the end of our hour. Let

me see if I can cut to the chase by using myself as an

example. Six months ago, I was living in Boston. My wife

had left me, which was very painful. Then she came back to

me, which was excruciating. On top of that, my practice

had grown stagnant, and my social life consisted of...

hanging around a bar night after night. You see, I was

clinging to a life that wasn't working anymore, and I knew

I had to do something, anything. So, I ended the marriage

once and for all, packed up my things, and moved back here

to my hometown of Seattle. Go Seahawks! [laughs] I took

action, Russell. And you can, too. Move, change, do

something; if it's a mistake, do something else. Will you

do that, Russell? Will you? Russell...? [to Roz]

I think we lost him.

Roz:
No, we cut to the news thirty seconds ago.
