Storyline

Unemployed Norm is forced to take a job washing dishes at Melville's. Diane and the gang at the bar suggest that Sam hire him as the bar's accountant. Sam confides in Diane that he doesn't want to do it, since the bar is important to him, and its finances a big part of that. But reluctantly, he agrees. Norm immediately goes to work on the bar's tax return, and after all is said and done, he nets the bar a $15,000 return, a net return something Sam is not used to. This work puts a bounce back in Norm's step and confidence back into his abilities as an accountant. However, financially conservative Sam doesn't tell Norm that he didn't actually submit this return, but rather the one done by his old accountant since he didn't trust Norm. If Norm ever were to find out that Sam didn't submit his return because he didn't trust him, it could be a deal breaker in Norm's association with Sam and Cheers. Written by Huggo

No Help Wanted (#2.14)
8 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Norm is going through a tough time when his unemployment runs out and he still didn't find a job, he has to was dishes at some fish restaurant. Diane suggest Sam to hire him as Cheers accountant, Sam is reluctant first and when Norm presents him that he should get 15,000 back he goes back t his old one as he is afraid of getting in trouble. This causes them to fight and almost ruins their friendship, but at the end it all turns out to be good.

Not the funniest episode but it had great moments. The best of course is getting Norm closer to Cheers as he is now their accountant. Of course we never thought that Norm and Sam ill stop being friends!
