Because Gary's Olde Towne Tavern is advertising heavily, Sam and Rebecca decide to hire an ad company to write a jingle for the bar. As Rebecca has only $200 to spend on such, the ad company foists Sy Flembeck, their resident hack writer, onto the Cheers account. Sy is not very creative or original. All his jingles are placed to the tune of Old MacDonald Had a Farm, and spell out the establishment's name in place of "E-I-E-I-O", even if there are more or less than five letters. But Sy's approach to jingles may actually have the desired if unintended effect of good advertisement. Meanwhile, Maggie O'Keefe has come back to Boston and wants to see Cliff. Once Cliff sees Maggie, he faints: she's very pregnant, supposedly with his child. However, Cliff doesn't believe that he is the father because... Cliff decides to marry Maggie anyway. Before Maggie decides what to do about Cliff's proposal, she has some additional news for Cliff about their past relationship. Written by Huggo

Do Not Forsake Me, O' My Postman (#11.5)
29 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Margaret shows up at Cheers again. Pregnant. She wants Cliff to marry her. After an initial shock he confesses to Sam that he and Margaret never had sex. But then when she tells him that the guy who is the father broke up with her he says he will start a family with her. Only that guy calls and says he wants her back. So Cliff is off the hook, but he also finds out that they indeed had sex he was just too drunk to remember.

Not a bad episode. Besides the main story I like the first scene where they had Andy Shroeder looking for Diane. A fun reference to the past. And besides the past we also have somebody for the future here. John Mahoney who later in the spin off will be the father of Frasier comes to Cheers to write them a commercial. I wonder if they liked him so much in this episode that he ended up with the Frasier part
