Rebecca is having her rich man obsession again, the object of her affection this time being Mr. Gaines. Although she has never really had any interest in him before, their shared knowledge of classical music - for her, it's more of a loathing due to her forced classical music upbringing - brings them together. He invites her over to his house for an evening of classical music. This evening is not quite what either expects, which in turn makes Rebecca do some things she probably would like to forget. Rebecca ultimately comes to a realization about her rich man obsession in general, but she has to translate that realization into action. Meanwhile, Cliff and Ma Clavin are feuding. By Cliff's words, the tone of his voice, his actions and absence of any trace of Mrs. Clavin when Carla, Norm and Paul break into Cliff's apartment, the threesome are convinced that he has murdered her.

Did You Know?


Cliff has placed his mother in a nursing home but everyone at the bar thinks he has murdered her. Earlier in the day when this episode was to air, a real-life postal worker in California murdered his mother. At first, NBC was not going to air the episode. They aired the show, but pulled all advertising of it because it had everyone talking about the possible murder of Cliff's mother. See more »


Dr. Frasier Crane: [to Carla, Norm and Paul] If you really think Cliff is capable of murdering his mother, why do you remain his friends?
Paul Krapence: He's my ride.

Rebecca Gaines, Rebecca Loses (#11.23)
14 July 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Kelly's dad comes to Cheers. He invites Rebecca over to his place for a classical music evening. She thinks he asked her on a date while he wants her to be the bartender. She is very upset and Sam comes over to help out. He even arranges Mr.Gaines to make it a date but Rebecca is drunk by that time.

My favorite part of this episode is actually the story of Cliff and his mom. The relationship of the two is pretty hilarious. And we also have this great scene when his mom starts crying when he leaves pretending it is all in his head. Aside of that the breaking into his apartment and beliefs that he killed his mom were great as well.
