Storyline

The Gaines family has recruited Sam and crew to provide liquor and bartending services at the wedding, and as we'd expect, everything goes wrong. Woody is randy for Kelly, while the rest of the gang learns Mr. Gaines would gladly have Woody killed if he learned Woody and Kelly had premarital relations; Kelly tears her dress, and it's seamstress Cliff to the rescue; and the minister has a heart attack and dies in the kitchen, leading the gang to try and keep the dead body hidden in the dumbwaiter and to recruit a last-minute replacement, a completely wasted member of the Gaines family who we learn, after the gang sobers him up, that he hates weddings, leading them to re-inebriate him. And outside the kitchen in the courtyard, the family Dobermans attack everyone who tries to walk past. Written by meebly

A brilliant 'Cheers' episode
20 January 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favourite episodes of 'Cheers', and one of the few that adds an element of farce into the usual mix of great characterisation and verbal dialogue.

Even in its tenth season this show was on top form, and it's a fast paced, funny episode, with Ted Danson's Sam trying to keep it all together. I liked what they did with his character in the post Diane years.

It's easy to say that they don't make comedies like this anymore but 'Cheers' to this day certainly remains the high bench mark for others to match. This episode proves that.
