D'ya Know What I Mean?

Did anybody ever watch 'Frasier' when it was on? That was one of my favorite shows; I thought it was hilarious and unfortunately, one of the last intelligent and truly witty shows on TV. Anyway, I remember this one episode where Frasier meets and starts dating this artist who paints dead rats and makes pillows with human hair. She's nutty as a fruitcake and they have nothing in common, because he's such a tight-ass stuffed shirt, but they have fun and lots of sex. He eventually starts to feel bad about this because he is of the mind that such a relationship isn't right and she's so weird maybe she really needs therapy and she'll be hurt when they inevitably break up etc. etc etc. So, he goes over to her apartment to break up and finds she has just cut all her hair off to make a pillow, because the 'urge and feelings' just moved her and she starts howling at the moon and all this. Of course, Frasier freaks out because she's acting so bizarre and he just can't get with it. She's all feeling and intuition and symbolism and he is trying to analyze the crap out of the whole deal and force her to act rational. So, he explains all this to her, expecting her to be crushed, but she finally makes him realize she is just a free-spirited person enjoying the moment of whatever happens. She enjoys seeing the symbolism in things and just going with her gut feelings, whatever they are. He finally realizes that people all have different natures and should work with those accordingly and sometimes it's okay to act a little crazy. He then starts howling at the moon with her and so on...........
I thought it was a really good episode. And when stuff happens in my life that seems a little nutty, I always think about it.
AAAWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Foxes howl?

I didn't watch the show when it was on, but I have been getting into the reruns lately- haven't seen that one yet! Well written and brilliantly acted; they don't make shows like that anymore.

edifice rex said...

Hey Molly! yeah, I did too but loved it and have to admit, I've had my moments too.

Hey Kathy! And I thought I was the only one that shouted things to the air! lol! thanks!

Hey FC! heehee...you sweetie.

Hey Deb! no, unfortunately they don't. One reason I just don't watch much TV anymore.

Gee, I never saw that episode.
Might have to cruise the interwebs to see if there are any links.
Many moons ago -pre1980- I worked in a bicycle shop in an artsy/hippy town.For a while there was a primal scream class that met on the floor above us!
I think hearing all those people howling kind of cured me of wanting to howl.
But madness, yeah, I got me some of that for sure! ;-)

Great post... funny, I was just reading it, and got to your AAAAWWWOOOOO!!! line while I was listening to the Brooks and Dunn special... they had just started singing the AAAWWOOOOOO! part to "Play Something Country" just as I was reading your words :) Crazy... Oh, and Frasier is one of my all-time favorite shows. I still enjoy the re-runs, and I think his brother Niles was incredible... the funniest I've ever seen on TV.

edifice rex said...

Hey Mya! OMG! A primal scream class!? I don't believe I would have been able to take that. Screaming is a whole lot different that howling! lol!

Hey Beau! thanks! yeah, I loved Niles too; they were all hysterical.
