TV Quote of the Day (‘Frasier,’ on an Especially Aggressive Agent)

[The Crane boys are discussing Frasier’s agent, Bebe.]

Dr. Niles Crane [played by David Hyde Pierce]: “You're still consorting with that barracuda?”

Dr. Frasier Crane [played by Kelsey Grammer ]: “Well, a barracuda is what you want in an agent, Niles. Well, it's just that the station's been sold, I was hoping she might have some scuttlebutt on the new owner. I must admit she's rather hard to get a hold of these days.”

Niles: “Oh really? I thought one just drew a pentagram on the floor and chanted ‘I summon thee’ three times.”—Frasier, Season 3, Episode 21, “Where There's Smoke, There's Fired,” original air date Apr. 30, 19967, teleplay by Joe Keenan, directed by Philip Charles MacKenzie

An interesting photo, by the way, of the boys in their favorite coffee shop--a venue that many of us will be missing for a long, long time to come, given the ravages of the coronavirus.
