Because of Woody's civic election win, Sam needs another bartender, a job he gives to Carla. To celebrate, Carla, whips up a batch of one of her powerhouse drinks for the guys. The day after, everyone has a hangover. What's worse, Carla, who imbibed and got drunk herself, has a sneaking suspicion that she took someone home and slept with him, that person she believes being one of the Cheers regulars. She confides in Sam alone, and after he tells her it wasn't him, she panics and they both ponder who it could have been, with her worse nightmare having it be Cliff. When her bed-mate ultimately reveals himself, Carla and Sam have to decide how best to handle the information. Two other revelations come to light in the aftermath of the drunken spree. And Sam makes an admission of his own to Carla to make her feel better about her own further revelation. Written by Huggo

It's Lonely on the Top (#11.22)
13 July 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After Woody won the election Sam needs a new bartender. He gives this job to Carla. An she does her famous very strong drinks. Next day everyone is hungover and she just remembers going home with a Cheers guy. Turns out it was Paul.Carla feels horrible but Sam is being a true friend. He talks to Paul about it to make him keep quiet and also reveals Carla his secret about his hair replacement.

A show about bar and it is amazing how rarely we had any episodes about severe intoxication.This is one of the very few blackout episodes and it is great. Carla trying to figure out who she slept with was great. One of my favorite parts is also Norm and Cliff remembering that they went to a tattoo parlor and then turning out that they mixed their tattoos up!
