Excessive twisting of the hair.

On 2000-02-24, Christopher Lloyd (executive producer of Frasier) was interviewed by Terry Gross on National Public Radio's "Fresh Air". He mentions an episode where Niles is delighted to be referenced in a footnote of an article in an obscure journal (he wrote an article on trichotillomania). Frasier is voted man of the year or something, totally overshadowing Niles. The episode may be "The 1000th Show" from the fifth season in 1997.
