Did You Know?


In the prologue, Woody charges Dr. McLaughlin $2.50 for a glass of beer. In 1990, the year this episode was broadcast, the buying power of the dollar was roughly twice what it is now (2015). Cheers must have had the priciest beer in Boston, or nearly so. See more »


John McLaughlin: Young man, a beer please.
Woody: Hey, you're on Sunday morning TV, aren't you.
John McLaughlin: Indeed.
Woody: Are you, uh, David Brinkley?
John McLaughlin: No.
Woody: Sam Donaldson?
John McLaughlin: Give me a break.
Woody: Oh, aren't you guy who keeps the gorgeous ladies of wrestling from tearing each other's hair out.
John McLaughlin: You could say that.
Woody: [as John McLaughlin takes out his money to pay, Woody says in awe] Oh, man, your money's no good here.

Happy 200th
18 November 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

Rather than just a boring flashback episode this episode is more of a celebration of the fact that the show had reached two episodes.

Taking the format of a panel discussion with the cast (including Shelley Long) and the creative powers that be it's an interesting enough episode, with some nice clips from previous episodes being shown.

It's a bit short, with not everybody getting much of a look in to say their piece in this edited version, but it's all good fun, and a nice celebration.
