A Grateful Farewell
With the end of the awards season for this last television year, now is as good a time as any to write a farewell note.
I happened across this site in 1999, and almost immediately asked Nick
Hartley, the original webmaster, if I could contribute. Two years later, much
to my surprise, he asked me to take over when he left for university. To
carry this responsibility, and be allowed to make my own voice heard in the
capturing of this sterling series, has been an unqualified pleasure. In doing
so, I have also made a host of new friends, both in the United States and
abroad, the best possible bonus to this absorbing work.
Frasier’s farewell sentiments expressed at his final show reflect mine as
well: I would have done the site just for the sake of memorializing Frasier,
but it was surprising, and overwhelming, to learn how many people all over the
world love the show, and how many of those fans were reading our work. I have
been endlessly gratified to receive the thanks and compliments of countless
readers. I hope my work on the site has done justice to your enthusiasm.
Rest assured, the site will stay up for many more years, and that the transcripts will continue to be polished to perfection, as the series
is gradually released on DVD. I still believe that Frasier will
represent a gold standard for television for a long time to come, and
look forward to seeing it mature with age.
I have a lot of people to thank for helping me to continue making the site a
success, most prominently Nick, for giving me this wonderful opportunity, and
my two fellow transcribers for the final seasons, David Langley and Kelly Dean
Hansen. Their enthusiasm for their work has given me a tough standard to
match. And to all of you who have sent in your compliments, and suggestions, you know who you are, and have my sincerest gratitude.
“Laughter. Tears. Curtain.”

Come, my friends,
‘Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:
It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,
And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.
Tho’ much is taken, much abides; and tho’
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are:
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
--“Ulysses” by Alfred, Lord Tennyson
(quoted by Frasier in his farewell speech)
