Storyline

Woody has some honey bees delivered to the bar and keeps them in the office for safekeeping. Luckily he does keep them safe as they do get loose and they seem rather angry. Rebecca has another pest with whom to deal, namely her new boss, Martin Teal. Greg Stone has been fired from the company, and Teal has taken his place at corporate. He wants to meet with Rebecca. In the elevator at corporate, she is hit on by a vertically-challenged man-child in a suit, to whom she basically tells to go back to his mommy. Later, she is horrified to learn that the man-child is Martin Teal. He takes an instant like to her in more ways than one. He not only reinstates her as the sole manager at Cheers, but he wants to date her. To get him off her back, she lies and tells him that she is already romantically involved with someone, namely Sam. But Martin Teal is a man-child who is used to getting what he wants at any and all cost. Written by Huggo

Although it's not labeled as such, this episode is Part One of a two-part episode, followed with "One Happy Chappy In A Snappy Serape." The episode reverses the setup established in the season premiere as Rebecca is promoted back to manager and Sam bucked back down to bartender. It's obvious since they only changed roles two episodes ago that the writers were still unsure as to what premise would work better, but at this point they were right to return Rebecca to the role of boss.

The chemistry between Sam and Rebecca is starting to get much better at this point, and they enter into much more of a friendly and harmless flirtation, in contrast to the genuine romantic magnetism of Sam and Diane. Martin Teal is the boy executive who pursues Rebecca, and although the story is funny there's something depraved about tiny actor Alex Nevil, something perverse about his lust and sociopathic courtship. The real star of this two-parter is Gerald Hiken as Dennis, Martin's assistant, who steals the show as the long-suffering executive sycophant.

Oh, and Woody has bees for some reason. Never mentioned before or since. His B-story gives us this week's silly sight gag: Woody emerging from the office in full bee-keeper uniform with clouds of bug bomb smoke billowing out behind him.

"Waitress, there's a drone in my Lowenbrau..."
