Storyline

Cheers is in competition with Gary's Olde Towne Tavern once again, this time it's the annual Bloody Mary contest open to all bars in the Greater Boston area. Cheers won the competition the first two years, but Gary's, ever since it opened, has won the last four. Rebecca has at least managed to get the organizers to hold the contest at Cheers this year. Sam in particular is in Bloody Mary mode, even getting Norm to stop drinking beer and start sampling Bloody Mary's. Sam believes his secret ingredient - if he can get a hold of it - will win them the contest. Regardless, Rebecca plans on stealing some of Gary's Bloody Mary mix to have it analyzed, which they all agree - more publicly than they imagined - is the best Bloody Mary they've ever tasted. Knowing that they can't beat Gary by the quality of the Bloody Mary, the Cheers group decide other methods are in order to win. Collectively and individually, they hatch plans for Gary not to win.

Goofs

In the final scene, most of the shots back towards the front of Cheers have a distinctly different, and worse, quality than normal. They're blurry and dark, as if a different camera were used or it wasn't set up properly. Shots from other angles look normal. See more »

Quotes

Rebecca Howe: Sam, guess what I've got under my coat.
Sam Malone: If I guess right, can I keep 'em?

Gary Won't Win!
30 April 2011 | by (New York, NY USA) – See all my reviews

A beautiful opening: Lilith confesses Frasier's sexual fantasy: he makes her prepare cinnamon toast and strawberry milk and insists on calling her Mommy while they have sex. And yet somehow we never hold this against Frasier... go figure.

Cheers competes against Gary's Old Towne Tavern in the annual Bloody Mary competition. Joel Polis returns as Gary, so it seems at this point as if he and Robert Desiderio are going to tag-team the role... odd for a series that was so good about continuity. The gang sends Woody to Gary's as a plant and engages in a series of scams in order to sway the contest their way.

This episode is fun while you watch it but has absolutely no lasting value. The moment it's over you'll forget it ever existed- much like this review!
