Trivia:
When Shelley Long (Diane) and Rhea Perlman (Carla) both became pregnant in real life during the 1984-1985 season, only Pearlman's pregnancy was written into the script. For most of that season, Long was mostly filmed behind the bar or from the neck up.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): In a episode #3.5 Diane states that people who where born late are usually smarter, then she admits that she was born late. Yet in an early season four episode, she states she was premature.See more »

Where everybody knows your name..., 4 June 2007
Author: Howlin Wolf from Oldham, Gtr Manchester, England.

... and the people who populate this little watering-hole become so familiar to you that they start to feel like family after awhile. Everybody has their own personalities and preoccupations, and with Norm it's only ever one thing: Beer. (What else?!) How the writers managed to dream up always funny one-liners connected to his favourite beverage for 11 years, I'll never know, but anyway... There was also his wife Vera, who never was seen but was often the source of some laughs. It's intricate little running gags like that which made it easy to spin off and create another successful comedy institution with "Frasier".

If I had to pick one I'd say my favourite character was Sam, though. He didn't have very many passions in life (probably only two: women and baseball) but he never stopped thinking about them, and there's a funny quality to a guy who's not ashamed to admit he's that single minded. You could mostly predict what Sam was going to try to do each episode, he'd attempt to get each of his head barmaids to sleep with him. The comedy in that comes from the many diverse ways he planned to do this, and that no matter how many times he was rejected or foiled, he kept coming back. You've gotta admire a guy for trying, and Ted Danson is famous for playing most of his material in such an easy and relaxed manner that it's hard at times not to pull for him to succeed.

I for one would like to say "Cheers!" to the creators and cast for blessing us with such a great show.
