It's time for the 53rd annual Miss Boston Barmaid contest, and this year it's being held at Cheers again, but Sam's not happy. The contest organizers have changed the format where beauty, chest size and overall bimbo-ness account for nothing. Rather, it's now a contest of true waitressing skills. Despite this, Carla is not interested in entering - she knows she can be the best waitress in the world if she wants to be (self-admittedly, her "friendliness" quotient is a bit lacking) and doesn't need anyone to tell her so - until she learns that first prize is a new Mazda Miata convertible. She will do anything to win that car. On the day of the contest, she obtains a confidential document naming the three judges, one of whom is none other than Cheers' own Cliff. Norm convinces Carla that to win the contest, Carla has to be nice to Cliff, not exactly the easiest thing in the world to do for Carla. Carla has to decide if the Miata or being nasty to Cliff is of greater priority. By contest ... Written by Huggo

Carla Loves Clavin (#9.22)
21 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Best barmaid contest is on again and held in Cheers. But rules are new, now it is all about skills and Carla participates to win a new car. But she finds the jury list and sees that Cliff is on it. So she has to treat him very well to win. Turns out though he faked the list and isn't really on the jury. Carla doesn't win anyways.

Fun episode. Was great to see Carla sucking up to Cliff, he sure deserved his feet to be massaged by her considering all that she put him through. I just feel bad she didn't win. Or that at least Sam wouldn't side up with her at the end. She lost just for her looks, and while it was the main thing for Sam in this contest I would expect him to support his friend.
