Henry 'Hank' Zenzola


Hank, a newcomer to Cheers, has the hots for Carla, but Carla won't give him an inch. He seems like a nice guy, but Carla is afraid that anyone that seems nice that is interested in her, or in who she is interested, has some rotten aspect in his life.

Allowing herself to be vulnerable, Carla whisks Hank off so that they can have some privacy.

Affairs of the Heart (#2.6)
7 April 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A guy who comes to the bar really likes Carla. She resists to go out with him because she is sure that something must be wrong with him. But Sam convinces her to do it. It works great and one day they want to go and have sex but coach tells in the bar that the guy has a heart condition and Sam and Diane go to prevent a disaster from happening.

I loved this episode! Too bad there was no happy ending but all the moments made it hilarious. Carla being mad at him when he flirts with her, kicking Sam, go out with him first and make all the checking on how crazy that is and as well as Sam and Diane at the bedroom door before Carla and the guy come in. Carla was at her best in this episode.
