There are a lot of transactions taking place in the bar this evening. Despite Rebecca's concern about its legality and its affect on the bar's license, Sam organizes the first sets of transactions: a basketball betting pool worth $500, $125 for each of the four quarters. Two reluctant bettors are Woody, who doesn't like to lose money or take money from his friends, and Rebecca, who eventually sees that $500 is more than she normally makes in an evening's work. The second transaction happens between the Cranes and Norm, the former who have hired the latter to decorate their unborn child's nursery in as neutral and unbaby-like a scheme as possible.

It's Carla's second wedding anniversary to Eddie, and she is without Eddie for the evening as he's on the road with the ice show.

It is unusual for a NBA game played in an Eastern Time Zone city to end after midnight Boston time, but it does happen on very rare occasions when nationally televised games begin later to accommodate the TV networks. See more »


Woody initially doesn't want to enter the basketball pool because he says he doesn't like taking money from his friends. Then when he wins he is a poor sport by gloating, implying that he has never won a betting pool and doesn't know how to behave properly. However, in season 4, in Cheers: Fools and Their Money, the main story line revolves around Woody having been active in the Cheers football pool, and having won three weeks in a row - without gloating.

Cliff Clavin: All right, I got it, I got it. The worst possible way to die: to be eaten alive by rats.
Norm Peterson: Naw, I think I can do better than that. I'd say the worst way to die is to be sliding down a razor banister, OK? A greased razor banister.
Dr. Frasier Crane: Wait, I've got it. To die alone, knowing that you have never been loved.
Norm Peterson: Come on Frasier, if you're not even going to try...

Call Me, Irresponsible (#7.20)
6 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is Carla and Eddie's anniversary and he is away with the ice show. Carla awaits him to call or send her a gift but nothing is coming until guys send her flowers but she figures out its them. Then she sends herself flowers but the lie comes out. At the end of the day Eddie calls but Carla figures out Sam called him to remind him.

A pretty good episode. I felt pretty bad for Carla, especially when the laundry comes. But the way Sam tried to make her feel happy was a great gesture of a friend.

Besides that I would like to hear more about Norm decorating the room of the kid. I love how Cranes want to make it gender neutral.
