Storyline

John Allen Hill, a famous Manhattan restaurateur, has bought Melville's, which Rebecca thinks is going to boost business for Cheers. Hill and Sam's relationship starts off slowly and gets worse and worse. The first spoken threat from Hill is the fact that he actually owns the property of the bar's pool room and washrooms, implying that he wants Sam to meets all his demands or else. Hill wants a floor mat at the bottom of the interior stairs and wants to use the bar as the restaurant's lounge which includes treating Cheers' staff as Melville's staff. And a consequence of Hill's ownership of Melville's is that the bar is filled with a different yuppie clientèle, who most importantly don't know that Norm's bar stool is only for Norm. But the last straw for Sam is that Hill wants his parking spot back, which Sam has always used to park his beloved Corvette. Sam and Hill refuse to do business with each other, which leads to Hill bricking off the bar's hallway - the one leading to his ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

Norm claims to have occupied the corner stool since the Ford administration. In an earlier episode, a customer who hadn't been to Cheers in twenty years recognized Norm immediately. Therefore, Norm has been a Cheers customer since the Nixon administration (or earlier) and changed stools during the Ford administration. See more »

Bad Neighbor Sam (#9.9)
20 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Melville has a new owner. It doesn't seem to be so good as he comes to Sam with some requests that were never an issue. And Sam has to agree with it because legally the pool table in the bar and the bathrooms belong to Melville. He does so for a while, but then the neighbor war starts.

A pretty funny episode. I guess the best part for me was Norm being so disturbed by somebody sitting in his chair. The woman "So what do you do?" Norm: "I sit here!!!".

The whole quarrel between Sam and the new owner of Melville was also pretty fun.
