Frasier Wiki

The Friend is the 11th episode of Season 3 of Frasier.


GRIFFIN DUNNE GUEST-STARS – Frasier realises that since moving home to Seattle he has relied solely on his brother for friendship, so he makes an on-air appeal for volunteers to become his new friend. A listener named Bob (guest star Griffin Dunne) responds; however, Frasier quickly learns that wheelchair-bound Bob is a complete bore who drones incessantly about barbecue. Due to Bob's condition, Frasier fears he'll misunderstand Frasier's motives for wanting to end the friendship.
