Rebecca's father reveals in this episode that Rebecca is 39 years old, although she claims to be 35 years old.
(Rebecca introduces her father to the gang at Cheers)
Rebecca: Everybody, I want you to meet my father. You can just call him "Brig" - that's his nickname. They call him "Brig" because he put so many sailors in jail.
Carla: Then why don't they call me "Brig?"
(the gang learns that Rebecca stills get an allowance from her father)
Cliff: Imagine somebody getting an allowance at her age, eh? My ma cut me off when I was thirty. No ifs, ands or buts. And it hurt, I tell you - hurt like hell. Ah, but it had a happy ending.
Norm: Made you more self-reliant, Cliff?
Cliff: Nah. A couple of years later her pension fund went bankrupt. She had to come crawling to me for some dough. I just gave her the old horse laugh. "What goes around," huh, boys.
(Franklin "Brig" Howe has sent Rebecca to pack her things)
"Brig" Howe: In the meantime, I'll just stay here and wait. Give me a beer.
Norm: (shows his empty mug) Sir, did I ever tell you that I was in the Coast Guard?
"Brig" Howe: Coast Guard, huh? Well you must be very proud, Miss.
Norm: So, buy a girl a drink?
