* Done surprisingly seriously in "Frasier Has Spokane," an episode of ''Series/{{Frasier}}''. Frasier's show is going to be syndicated in the titular city, but he's replacing a local legend, and the entire population seems to hate him. To help, he has Roz, his producer, call in and pretend to someone with a problem. She says her name is "Ro...berta." The serious part comes in when the facade falls and she genuinely expresses her pain about her latest breakup; Frasier similarly offers her sincere advice, and comforts her.
