Storyline

Cliff is saddled with the task of training a new postal employee, and he's not too happy about a rookie getting in his way. However he changes his tune when he meets her: Margaret 'Maggie' O'Keefe. Maggie is as passionate about the post office as Cliff, and she vows, with his mentoring, to be the second best postal employee behind him. Maggie's post office passion transfers itself to Cliff, who is as surprised and as nervous as he's ever been to this revelation as it will be his first time with a woman. At their scheduled rendezvous at an out of the way motel, things are going well until a policeman comes by asking the motel guests about the stolen postal truck, obviously the one Maggie used to drive to the motel. Will Maggie's actions be a deal breaker for sex-starved Cliff? Meanwhile, in Sam's never ending quest to bed Rebecca, Frasier suggests that he find the one sensory stimulus that turns Rebecca's crank. She admits to Sam that she does have one, it being a song from her ... Written by Huggo

Goofs

In trying to uncover the song that turns Rebecca's "knees to butter", Sam asks her mother, who tells Sam that her favorite song was "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" by the Righteous Brothers. Sam later enters Rebecca's office with a tape player playing the song to tempt her; when the episode originally aired, the song was "You've Lost That Loving Feeling," but in the show's reruns in syndication and on home video (including DVD and streaming), the song is a different Righteous Brothers hit, "Unchained Melody." This is presumably due to licensing issues; there are several other "Cheers" episodes whose soundtracks have similar substitutions, although none with a different song by the same artist, and none in which the song title was mentioned in the show's dialogue.

Please Mr. Postman (#7.12)
6 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Cliff has to teach a new post carrier, Margaret who is just as crazy about carrying mail as he is. She also has feelings for him and they end up meeting at a motel. Only police shows up because the post vehicle Margaret used to get there was reported as stolen. They get out of it but feel too corrupt so they tell the truth. Margaret is fired and decides to go to Canada to be the mail carrier, but Cliff stays home.

The episode has a few weak points. One is that Annie Golden was bad at this role. She acted unnatural and exaggerated so even the well written scenes, like her talking about their corruptions ended up not being funny. Still Cliff gives us a few fun moments such as telling Margaret that she will be OK in cold Canada as women have an extra layer of fat. But still the episode isn't really funny for a sitcom.
