Norm announces to the bar that he has a great new job at a prestigious CPA firm. Everyone at the bar soon learn first hand that Norm over-sold his job as his office, the size of a phone booth, used to be the supply room which he has to share with an obsequious brown-noser of a colleague named Tompkins. When alone with Diane, Norm shows his frustration at which Diane chastises him for not being more of a go-getter in his life in general. This act and his lot within the company makes Norm think he can move up the corporate ladder. With Diane's help he thinks he's got the plan that will help himself become a corporate success, which would be a first in his life. This plan ultimately shows Norm that he really has found his lot in life. Meanwhile back at the bar, Sam and Diane discuss where they should go on their honeymoon. Will it be Tibet or Disney World?

Norm's First Hurrah (#5.23)
27 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Norm tells in the bar about the new job of his that is really awesome. Diane organizes them to go and congratulate Norm. Turns out the job isn't all that great Diane pushes Norm to become somebody who goes after success. Norm prepares a proposal to the firm to save money, his office partner steals it. But it turns out to be a horrible proposal and Norm wants to return to being a bench warmer.

Fun episode. I understand Norm, some of us are just happy with a normal and stable job and rather have some beers in the bar instead of making career. He is great as a bench warmer The whole Disney talk about Donald Duck was especially funny in this episode.
