Norm ended up turning down being a Knight simply because they were banning beer from their gatherings.
During a conversation between Sam and Carla, actor George Wendt's shoulder can be seen for several minutes through the window of the bar's front door as he waits for his cue to enter. Later, during another conversation between Sam and Carla, guest star J. Eddie Peck's shoulder can also be seen through the window as he waits for his cue.
This is the first episode that someone who isn't a Cheers employee sets up Norm's entrance-scene one-liner. It's also the first person who isn't a regular cast member to do so. Recurring character Paul Krapence (Paul Willson) sets up Norm's entrance joke.
It's the first time Norm is shown entering the bar without saying hi to everyone and everyone yelling "Norm!" This was due to the fact that Norm was deep in conversation with Cliff as they entered.
As Sam is waiting for the Lodge members to arrive, you can see a bald man looking through the Cheers entrance door. A minute later the same man enters the bar with his wife. Evidently the man was waiting for his cue but got caught on camera.
During the beginning of the episode when Sam is talking to Diane about the their relationship, a man in a blue jacket is standing just outside the Cheers entrance door. His sleeve is visible every time the door opens. After Sam leaves Diane's side Cliff enters Cheers. Evidently he was standing outside waiting for his cue and was too close to the entrance.
The barbershop quartet was called the 139th Street Quartet and two of the members, Douglas Anderson and James Kline, returned in the Season 8 episode The Stork Brings a Crane.
In reference to above posting, if you look closely you'll notice that as Diane moves toward the door...in the dark you can see that the cabinet is still in front of the door. The scene then cuts to Sam's reaction to her line of dialogue, and when the camera cuts back to Diane, as she turns on the light, the cabinet if back in its proper place. The assumption is that Diane moved the cabinet right before she turned on the light. We didn't see it because of the way the scene was edited. She moved it when the camera cut to Sam.
In the hospital room, when Diane visits, Sam turns the lights off and pushes a dresser infront of the door to "stop" anyone from "accidently" walking in, however when Diane refuses his advances, and goes back to the door to leave, turns on the lights, and the dress magically has been replaced to it's original location!
Norm tells Cliff that he hates to paint. Later on in the run of this series, Norm becomes a professional painter, and seems to enjoy it more than being an accountant.
Norm could be lying, to get out of spending the afternoon with Cliff and his mother.
Paul Willson also played Gregg in "Someone Single, Someone Blue", and Tom in "Little Sister, Don't Cha".
Towards the end of the episode, Woody and Sam go into Sam's office. Woody is not wearing his apron before he enters. As he enters, his apron appears suddenly and disappears about two minutes into the scene.
Mistake - Frasier says he's seen Andy several times. But since he was supportive of him, it's still odd for him to shriek.
When Norm goes into the basement, it's clearly seen that the doorknob is on the right side. However, when Diane shuts the same door behind her the knob is on the left side.
In the scene where Cliff & Norm first meet Woody, there is a full glass of beer on the bar in front of Norm when they walk towards the bar, but when Norm shakes hands with Woody only seconds later, the beer is missing.
Except for an appearance during a cold opening in the final episode of the season, this was Nicholas Colassanto's final appearance.
As much of a stickler for rules as he is, coupled with his pride in the US Postal Service, Cliff would well be aware that it is a Federal crime for anyone other than a letter carrier to handle undelivered mail. This is one of the first things letter carriers are taught and Cliff would know this, no matter how sick he was.
The book that Sam & Coach are using to learn geography, "The World & It's People", has a mispelling in its title. The "it's" being misused in place of "its", it should have been "its" meaning "belonging to" and not it's meaning "it is".
Why does Sam not go to Cliff for help with geopraphy and instead pass him and Norm. I would think Cliff would be the first he goes to?
