Episode cast overview:
Watch Salesman


It's the annual St. Patrick's Day battle of sales between Cheers and Gary's Olde Towne Tavern. Not only does Cheers lose the battle of the hi-jinx with an unsuspecting Woody taking the brunt of the battle, Cheers also loses the sales bet. Sam has finally had as much as he can take not only with the loss once again to Gary's but performing the most humiliating task he and the guys have had to endure due to the loss. Sam threatens Gary and decides to pull out one of the biggest guns he knows: Harry the Hat. Sam asks Harry to devise and execute the ultimate plan to beat Gary. Harry refuses. Despite Carla's assertion to take matters into her own hands, Sam finally gives up permanently to Gary. When Sam goes over to Gary's to wave the final white flag, he witnesses in horror what he believes is Carla's master plan. But what he witnesses is part of a deal Gary made with Rutherford Cunningham, who Sam knows better by another name. Written by Huggo

Demolishing a building in any city, like all construction, requires a permit. It is not possible to complete all the legal requirements and obtain such a permit in only one day, and by the time Gary would have done that, he would have long figured out Harry was a con artist. See more »


Sam Malone: Hello, Harry.
Harry 'The Hat' Gittes: Hey Sam.
Sam Malone: [looking at tableful of watches] Whatcha doing? Trying to sell some bogus watches, some knock-offs to my customers and try to cheat them?
Harry 'The Hat' Gittes: [holding up a watch] Sam, that hurts. This is no knock-off. That's a five thousand dollar Rolex, but it's on sale for twenty-five hundred.
Sam Malone: Is this a real Rolex, Harry?
Harry 'The Hat' Gittes: Yeah!
Sam Malone: [Sam grabs the watch and starts banging it on the table] Whoa. Hey, it sounds like a Rolex, doesn't it?
Sam Malone: [...]

Bar Wars VII: The Naked Prey (#11.19)
12 July 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is St. Patrick's day and it is time for the bar wars again. Gary beats Cheers once again by putting a wall around their bar and have them lose in sales. Sam and the guys have to perform a humiliating act in front of Gary's audience. And then he fools Sam into believing that he may get into legal trouble by running down his bar after selling it. Only he sold it to Harry the con artist. So at the end of the show Cheers won the wars.

Well the bittersweet last episode of the bar wars. And we also get to see Harry again who was an important part of this show. This are all great things. But I am not too sure I am happy that Cheers won at the end. It is a sort of closure but it kind of went against the way one is used to on the show.
