He realizes the stuff he is buying is crap, but just can't help himself. Although it doesn't cure his desire, his credit card company helps him out as he is over his credit limit, forcing him to go cold turkey.

Norm and Cliff's Excellent Adventure (#9.11)
20 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Norm and Cliff are in the mood to have some fun and get it by making people fight. But their plan with Sam and Frasier in which Sam ends up cutting Frasier's card gets a bit out of hand and Frasier doesn't want to come to Cheers anymore. So they try to make it good again and get a punishment for which Sam uses Woody's new interest in shopping channel.

Loved this episode. Norm and Cliff should have more adventures together, was absolutely hilarious. Like the way Cliffy tried to make Frasier and Lilith to fight. And there was a lot of Frasier! His fight with Sam was great, he was perfect in it. Just like his talk to Lilith. Many great lines through the episode.
