Cliff is saddled with the task of training a new postal employee, and he's not too happy about a rookie getting in his way. However he changes his tune when he meets her: Margaret 'Maggie' O'Keefe. Maggie is as passionate about the post office as Cliff, and she vows, with his mentoring, to be the second best postal employee behind him. Maggie's post office passion transfers itself to Cliff, who is as surprised and as nervous as he's ever been to this revelation as it will be his first time with a woman. At their scheduled rendezvous at an out of the way motel, things are going well until a policeman comes by asking the motel guests about the stolen postal truck, obviously the one Maggie used to drive to the motel. Will Maggie's actions be a deal breaker for sex-starved Cliff? Meanwhile, in Sam's never ending quest to bed Rebecca, Frasier suggests that he find the one sensory stimulus that turns Rebecca's crank. She admits to Sam that she does have one, it being a song from her ... Written by Huggo

Sam calls Rebecca's mom to ask her what Rebecca's favorite song was when she was younger. Her mom tells him that it's "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" by the Righteous Brothers. But the song Sam plays for her is Unchained Melody, also by the Righteous Brothers. See more »


In trying to uncover the song that turns Rebecca's "knees to butter", Sam asks her mother, who tells Sam that her favorite song was "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" by the Righteous Brothers. Sam later enters Rebecca's office with a tape player playing the song to tempt her; when the episode originally aired, the song was "You've Lost That Loving Feeling," but in the show's reruns in syndication and on home video (including DVD and streaming), the song is a different Righteous Brothers hit, "Unchained Melody." This is presumably due to licensing issues; there are several other "Cheers" episodes whose soundtracks have similar substitutions, although none with a different song by the same artist, and none in which the song title was mentioned in the show's dialogue.

Pretty Dumb!
29 August 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Cliff is annoyed that he has to do a training session for a young new postal worker. She is a cute little clone of Cliff. After he gets her trained she comes on to him, kissing him in the bar. Soon, they have an encounter in a motel, but because she is such a rule follower, she is beset with guilt. Cliff must struggle with his fear of getting fired and going with her. The whole episode is just pretty ridiculous.
