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
