    9.0
    This episode was one of the best from the early years. All of the charactors have some excellent lines, and the writing is top noch throughout. This was the defining episode for me, the one that really spelt out to me hat Cheers was the best comedy show on TV, and that the show would attain cult status. It had been very good, but this episode really stood out for me.moreless
