Cliff goes into the mail order shoe business. At only $19.99 a pop, all the guys in the bar decide to get a pair. When the shoes arrive, the guys are all amazed at how comfortable and good looking the shoes are, but... Meanwhile, Rebecca thinks that she finally has her ticket out of the bar. Daniel T. Collier, the Chairman of the Board of the corporation - which by the way is called Lillian - asks her to organize a cocktail party at his house. Against Rebecca's better judgment, she agrees to hire Sam and Woody to tend bar at the party. The party is going well until Woody empties some garbage into what he thinks is a garbage can, but is really a priceless antique vase. What's worse is that Rebecca accidentally breaks the vase while she's emptying it out. Admissions to Mr. Collier aka Pinky as to who did what to the vase has an unexpected short to medium term result, despite Woody and Sam's best efforts to be the martyrs. Written by Huggo

Did You Know?


This episode was filmed on November 18, 1987.

When we first see Mr. Collier at the party, he is wearing a bow tie that you don't have to tie. (You can see the clip used to tighten or loosen the tie.) Later, in the billiards room, he is wearing an untied bow tie that you do have to tie. See more »

You've Got Grit
29 April 2011 | by (New York, NY USA) – See all my reviews

Woody takes the blame for Rebecca's mistake and winds up hobnobbing with a company CEO. Another great 80's yuppie nightmare: Rebecca- who would sell her very soul to be accepted in the corporate world- has to stand by and watch as a brain-dead farm boy becomes the company golden child. The episode is funny but features perhaps the single-worst establishing shot in series' history: the fuzzy still-frame of a Massachusetts brownstone that would be rejected as "too crude" by even the local cable station of the day.

This episode- directed by John Ratzenberger- would not be complete without the silly Season Six sight gag, and this time out it's Cliff's mail-order shoes that provide a roomful of squeaking barflies. This subplot is too broad, too cartoonish to be enjoyed, and it hurts an otherwise hilarious episode.
