Bebe Neuwirth: Look, you guys, you guys are freaks, man. I'm not Lilith, I'm Bebe. I'm an actress. I sing. I'm a Broadway dancer. Look at these pins. You know any 40-year-olds who can wrap their legs around their necks? Look, these babies worked for me before Frasier, they're gonna work for me afterwards. So don't you worry about Lilith.Bebe: No, I mean Lilith. I want to play that bitch forever!... Frasier is such an easy gig, man! They fly you first class to Los Angeles, put you up in the Bel Air Hotel, per diem. I deliver several lines in a robotic monotone and I'm buyin' a new Lexus!
Karen: You mean Bebe.
