there really is. the way dan rather says it (last time i heard him say it) is wrong. it's supposed to be a flat a in the middle. flat like in the word....'flat'. nev-aaaaahhhhh-dahhh, where the a's are like the middle one in 'garage', marks you as an outsider. the cop in the show does it too but it's a bit less pronounced than the way nick does it. *shrugs* y'all don't have to agree with me - it's why i hate nick.
