  • Trivia

    • Norm claims that he never knew that the bar had a piano. He seemed well aware of it in the first season episode Showdown when Sam's brother dazzled the gang with his piano playing and singing skills.

  • Quotes

    • Cliff: Nice to see Woody in charge, huh? It seems like only yesterday he couldn't find his way around the bar and he got lost in the storeroom.
      Norm: That was yesterday.

    • Frasier: Sam, your whole life has been a string of meaningless albeit enjoyable sexual encounters. Now for the first time you're engaging in a meaningful productive pursuit. It's a common conflict between what we call recreational sex and procreational sex.
      Sam: What?
      Frasier: Oh dirty sex and clean sex.

    • Frasier: Sam what is it?
      Sam: I-I-can't.
      Frasier: Is it an accident? A fire? Do you want us to follow you? Sam, look just pull yourself together and tell me what it is.
      Sam: I can't.
      Frasier: Yes, you can. Just organize your thoughts, form the words, and tell me.
      Sam: I can't.
      Frasier: Sam, if you want me to help you, you're gonna have to tell me what the problem is.
      Sam: I am.
      Frasier: Then what is it?
      Sam: (yelling) I can't!

    • Sam: Woody, we're out of here. You're in charge of the bar.
      Woody: Why bother, Sam? Whenever you put me in charge nobody every listens to me. I just get laughed at and get drinks poured over my head.
      Sam: If anyone does that to you, you just sic Carla on them.
      Woody: I'm talkin' about Carla.

    • Rebecca: Look I don't want it to be that we just do it. I want this to be special. I mean what's going to happen when our child asks us about the night we conceived. What are we going to say?
      Sam: How about, "Mind your own business?"

    • Norm: Sammy, we have a smoking section?
      Sam: Yeah over by the piano.
      Norm: I gotta turn my head more.

    • Woody: Of course where's my head?
      Carla: Probably in the pumpkin patch wondering when the mix up occurred.

    • Norm: Cliffie, I hate to interrupt but we're here.
      Cliff: Normie, how come you always drop me off six blocks away from my house?
      Norm: This time it's a mile. Get out.

    • Sam: If were gonna have a baby, I'm gonna need my Johnny!
