Storyline

There are a lot of transactions taking place in the bar this evening. Despite Rebecca's concern about its legality and its affect on the bar's license, Sam organizes the first sets of transactions: a basketball betting pool worth $500, $125 for each of the four quarters. Two reluctant bettors are Woody, who doesn't like to lose money or take money from his friends, and Rebecca, who eventually sees that $500 is more than she normally makes in an evening's work. The second transaction happens between the Cranes and Norm, the former who have hired the latter to decorate their unborn child's nursery in as neutral and unbaby-like a scheme as possible.

Goofs

Woody initially doesn't want to enter the basketball pool because he says he doesn't like taking money from his friends. Then when he wins he is a poor sport by gloating, implying that he has never won a betting pool and doesn't know how to behave properly. However, in season 4, in Cheers: Fools and Their Money, the main story line revolves around Woody having been active in the Cheers football pool, and having won three weeks in a row - without gloating.

Quotes

Cliff Clavin: All right, I got it, I got it. The worst possible way to die: to be eaten alive by rats.
Norm Peterson: Naw, I think I can do better than that. I'd say the worst way to die is to be sliding down a razor banister, OK? A greased razor banister.
Dr. Frasier Crane: Wait, I've got it. To die alone, knowing that you have never been loved.
Norm Peterson: Come on Frasier, if you're not even going to try...

Anniversary
29 August 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The primary focus of this episode involves Carla, waiting for Eddie to call on their anniversary. She goes through gyrations to convince everyone that Eddie is a good guy. There is also some funny stuff involving a basketball betting chart. Woody has some really funny lines.
