* ''Series/Frasier'' features an episode in the third season during which one of Frasier's call-ins rings up to complain about this happening to her and becoming traumatized by it. The call is fielded by Roz as Frasier is running late. He then runs into the studio in an exhausted state and picks up the phone while trying to regain his breath. Suffice to say, the woman at the other end completely misinterprets what she hears.
