  • Trivia

    • When Carla couldn't remember with whom she had slept and was trying to figure out the identity of her mystery lover, why didn't she even consider John Allen Hill since she was apparently still having an affair with him as of 2 episodes prior?

  • Quotes

    • (after a night of drinking Carla's special drinks, the guys are badly hung over; Woody cheerfully enters the bar)
      Frasier: Woody, you had as much of that vile brew as the rest of us. How can you be so chipper this morning?
      Woody: Oh, it's because of the old Hanover hangover cure. Very simple: first, put on your pajamas; then, take an aspirin with a glass of cold water; and then, you vomit 'til your nose bleeds and heave until you see the angels. Wake up in the mornin', you feel brand new. Boy, I am hungry. Anybody for some chili dogs?
      Norm: Okay, okay, but only two.

    • Sam: I'm Sam Malone, by definition everything I do is cool.

    • Norm: Okay, Cliff, you want to tell me what's tattooed forever on my butt.
      Cliff: It's a big American flag there, Norm. With the motto: "God Bless The U.S. Post Office."

    • (After finding out what their tattoos on their rears said)
      Cliff: What's mine say?
      Norm: "I Love Vera."

  • Notes

    • Sam promotes Carla to bartender in this episode to replace Woody who is leaving "Cheers" after being elected a city councilman in the previous episode.

    • It is revealed that Sam wears a toupee over a big bald spot on the back of his head. He's apparantly been wearing it since 1989!

    • If you look closely you will see the late NBC programming chief Brandon Tartikoff sitting next to recurring guest star Philip Perlman ("Phil") when Phil speaks his second line. When Woody says that he spent the night "listening to Phil tell stories about how he worked on the Manhattan project", Phil says, "Try sleeping with that for fifty years". Then Tartikoff gets off his stool to leave.

    • This was the last episode produced. The 90-minute finale was taped in March to accomidate Shelley Long's schedule.
