    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Before the credits, you can see clearly the same black & white picture of Sam that has always hung behind the bar. However, after the credits the picture has inexplicably changed to a color photo in a different pose with a new frame.

    • QUOTES (12)

      • Norm: Sammy, you didn't wash [John Hill's] car, did ya?
        Sam: Hey what do you take me for> I detailed every inch of it.

      • Lilith: I think your humor is expressive a hidden hostility toward Rebecca. Or perhaps deep down you fear she really is capable of taking this bar from you.
        Sam: Put a suit on a woman and she thinks she's God.
        Lilith: Frasier, are you going to let him talk to me like this?
        Frasier: She's also this way when the suit comes off, Sam.

      • Lilith: This a bit of a surprise, isn't it Rebecca? Why do you want Cheers? I would think for you this bar would only have negative associations connected with it. Well think of all the heartbreak you've had here; the forgotten goals, the missed opportunities....
        Norm: Hey, it's called atmosphere, babe.
        Lilith: I would think for you, this place would have the stench of failure.
        Carla: No, that's Clavin and fyi it's not just failure.
        Rebecca: Actually Lilith, I had more productive successful times at Cheers than I've had anyplace else in my life.
        Lilith: Dear God! Oh I'm sorry. I was thinking of something else.

      • (Rebecca offers Sam $25,000 for the bar)
        Sam: Where are you going to get that kind of money?
        Rebecca: I have a degree. I'm a business woman. I just spent the last ten years in a major corporation. My daddy's giving it to me.

      • Carla: Buy yourself a melon in case you misplace your head.
        John Hill: Tell me Carla, clinically speaking are you considered a dwarf or a midget?
        Carla: Say is that your head or is your neck blowing a bubble?
        John Hill: Somebody phone the authorities in Paris. The gargoyle has just fallen off Notre Dame and is now taking drink orders.
        Carla: You know two heads like that would make a perfectly good butt.
        John Hill: Shrike.
        Carla: Bullet head.
        John Hill: Slattern.
        Carla: Hatchet face.
        John Hill: Well must be off. Till next month then.
        Carla: He's good people.

      • Paul: What do you mean you don't run tabs here? Norm Peterson has a tab the size of his pants.
        Sam: Well that's Norm.
        Paul: Well this is Paul.
        Sam: Comes on. Norm doesn't have much in life except Cheers.
        Paul: What about me? I'm unemployed and I don't like my wife.
        Sam: You put me in a tough spot here.
        Paul: I'm sorry, Sam. I really want a tab.

      • John Hill: Good news girls, we're going to Hollywood!

      • Sam: Well Harry, let me save you the trouble... this bar is worth $25,000,000!

      • Sam: C'mon guys, let's check Rebecca's tote board. Here's her goal at $25,000,000 and she has a total of 2 nickels... wooo! Oh, that confetti just cost you another nickel.... promotion's not free you know!

      • Sam: By the way, that vermouth's not going to order itself there, Sparky!

      • Rebecca: Sam, your jokes are so childish.
        Sam: Well... that's what keeps me young, babe!

      • Sam: Hey guys, listen to this...PS: Order more vermouth!
