  • Quotes (11)

    • Diane: (to Sam, upon learning of how she was set up with Andy) You hired a murderer to take me out on a date?!

    • Diane: I've been hungry for Italian all day. What do you say about an Italian restaurant? Andy-Andy: Anywhere but Theomilano's. That's bad memories for me. I killed a waitress there. Sam: (to a horrified Diane) We'll double [date].

    • Sam: At least my dates don't count the number of letters in a sentence. Diane: Your dates can't form sentences.

    • Andy: What if she doesn't like me? Sam: It's okay, she doesn't like anybody.

    • Norm: Sam, watching you prepare for a date is like watching a great matador prepare for a bullfight.

    • NBC rebroadcast this episode on June 23, 1983 and August 2, 1984.

    • "Cheers is filmed before a live studio audience" is announced by George Wendt.

    • First appearance of the recurring psychotic character Andy "Andy-Andy" Schroeder (played by Derek McGrath), who would appear 3 more episodes (not including the 200th anniversary episode.)

    • David Lloyd received a 1983 Emmy nomination for Best Writing in a Comedy Series for this classic episode.

    Trivia (1)

    • Nitpick: When Diane returns from the bathroom after fixing her hair, it has been transformed from a frizzy, disheveled mess from riding a motorocycle, to a perfectly coifed, straight 'do. Her make-up has also been redone. Since she was only gone about 30 seconds, it seems highly unlikely that she would have had time to get her hair and make-up so completely perfect in such little time.
