Storyline

Rebecca is concerned for Robin's welfare as he is on a works crew picking up garbage, work unsuited to his previous white collar billionaire lifestyle. Sam relishes in rubbing Rebecca's nose about the situation. Carla relishes parading her scantily clad, blouse-wet body in front of the female-starved convicts and their muscled guards. Meanwhile, Norm's life is crumbling around him as The Hungry Heifer is forced to close due to a building sale and demolition. He's not only sad for himself, but for Sid Nelson, the owner and his friend. Norm goes on a mission to save The Hungry Heifer. He starts off with a petition, but in the process of the petition thinks he's found another way to save the building and thus the restaurant. Sid shows his gratitude to Norm, who he has always treated as a son, in an unexpected way by making a special request from him. Written by Huggo

Trivia

The song played by Sam on the juke box and boom box was originally "I Fought the Law" (as credited on IMDb) but in the re-release of this episode broadcast on MeTV, the song was eliminated and a substitute dubbed in, possibly because licensing or clearances were lost in the intervening years between the original broadcast and reruns.

Grease (#9.6)
19 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Norm's favorite restaurant Hungry Heifer that is basically a second home to him outside of Cheers is supposed to be demolished. He is depressed but then he decides to do something against it and succeeds by making the place immune to demolitions. Only the owner doesn't respond as positively to it as Norm thought he would.

It had some great scenes. One of them would be Norm's conversation with Sid Nelson with the great line where sees shows concern about what he does to people's bodies, like Norm's. And the little prisoner presentation Sam did that ended up getting him into prison. But the stories are not too exciting.
