    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Diane: Norman, why do you keep putting yourself through this? You must be emotionally drained at the end of the day.
        Norm: Yeah I am. But hey I'm good at it. I finally found something in life that I'm good at, pity.

      • Sam: What will you have, Norm?
        Norm: Well I'm in a gambling mood, Sammy. I'll take a glass of whatever comes out of that tap.
        Sam: It looks like beer, Norm.
        Norm: Call me Mr. Lucky.

      • Cliff: Alright everybody I'm warning you. You better stay on my good side today.
        Carla: Cliff, I've looked at you from every angle. There is no good side.

      • Diane: Carla, have you given any thought to using some form of natural childbirth this time?
        Carla: I always use the "Le Mans" method.
        Diane: No, you mean "Lamaze".
        Carla: No, "Le Mans". I scream like a Ferrari.

      • [Mr. Hecht, Norm's boss, confronts him in Cheers' restroom]
        Mr. Hecht: We want you to be our corporate killer.
        Norm: The guy who fires people?
        Mr. Hecht: That's right. You see, we decided that terminating employees puts too much stress on our executives. We think you'll be perfect.
        Norm: Why me?
        Mr. Hecht: Because studies have shown that, uh, it's particularly humiliating when you're fired by somebody who's clearly and markedly superior to yourself. And, uh, that just wouldn't be the case with you, Norman. See, uh, you're just an ordinary Joe. As a matter of fact, we, uh, we checked out your homelife. You have absolutely nothing anyone could possibly envy or resent.
        Norm: I'm honored, sir. But I, this, this sounds like a horrible job, frankly.
        Mr. Hecht: It's a 300% raise and if you don't take it you're fired.
        Norm: Sir, I will have you know that I cannot be bought... and I cannot be threatened; but you put the two together and I'm your man.

      • Commenting Sam and Diane's former relationship
        Norm: Hey would you too mind if we move on to something a little more interesting than your star-crossed romance?
        Carla: Come on, Norm. What could be more interesting than another gripping episode of "Young and the Chestless"?
