Storyline

Woody embarks on his new life as City Councilman. Norm embarks on his new life as civil servant as Woody pulled some strings to get him an accounting job at City Hall. And Rebecca and Sam embark on their new relationships... possibly. Don asks Rebecca to marry him. Will her regular "I've got to marry a rich man" impulse makes her say no? And after seeing her win an ACE Cable Award on television, Sam makes the decision to get in touch with Diane. Sam lies to her about how happy he is in his life, and he suspects that she too is lying about how happy her married life is. But only a visit by Diane to Boston may make both realize what they want in life, which specifically for Sam can be summed up by a comment from Norm: "You can never be unfaithful to your one true love". Cheers. Written by Huggo

Rebecca vs. Diane

Rebecca was so much funnier than Diane, and an overall more interesting character. Kirstie stole the show in the final episode compared to Shelley.

I would have rather seen Sam end up with Rebecca, just because they were such good friends and didn't have the obvious "opposites attract" cliché going on.

The Rebecca years were superior in every way: better character development, more stories, and a Cheers beyond just Sam and Diane. In fact, that silent, dead-face reaction the bar gave Sam when he announced they were back together was the same one everyone watching expressed.

I'm sorry, but Woody was better than Coach.

The last season drug on a little bit, but the final episode (3 parts) was of excellent quality. Paul was also a gem in the last season.

The way they ended it was perfect though: the core cast lives on doing what we always want to remember them doing. Not a bunch of goodbyes.
