  • Not the strongest plot by any means, but loaded with great little moments.

    Season 4 was probably the strongest season of Cheers, and this one is an example of it. Norm is up for a promotion and learns that his only competition is having an affair with the boss\'s wife. Meanwhile, Frasier shows the gang slides of his ill-fated trip to Europe.

    While not a terribly memorable episode storywise, there are a ton of great jokes including Norm\'s most famous line about it being a \"dog eat dog\" world. Also the fate of Fraiser\'s stuffed owl and the Cheez Doodle sequence make this one of the better written and funnier episodes of the series.
