Episode cast overview:
Leo Metz
Donna McKechnie ...
Customer #1 (as Keenen Wayans)
Jack Knight ...


The arrival in the bar of Brandee, a stereotypical dumb blonde, gets the tongues wagging of all the male patrons and of course Sam. Sam is annoyed at the fact that Diane doesn't approve of Brandee or Sam's choices of "fun" women in general. Despite this, Sam tries to prove that his choice of women is not restricted solely to the fun, fast woman stereotype. When this fails, Sam and Diane get into an on-going war of words, Diane accusing Sam of being an over-age adolescent, Sam accusing Diane of being a snob. Sam gets the last word in this issue. Meanwhile, Coach tries to fill in as the sage advisor for a former bar patron who's come back looking for Gus, a previous owner of the bar. Written by Huggo

When Diane, now a waitress at Cheers after her fiancé stood her up, doesn't approve of Sam's taste in dumb but beautiful women, Sam attempts to prove her wrong to disastrous effect. Meanwhile, a customer comes in to the bar in a sad state hoping to talk to Gus about his problems, not realizing Gus, the previous PREVIOUS owner of Cheers has died in the interim (a turn of events which won't make sense in another episode much later in the series) so Coach tries to help him with his problems instead.

Another good episode that shows the start of the relationship that Sam/ Diane would share later in the series. The end scene where Miss Chambers is obviously smitten before she realizes what Sam has done is a great one.
