One of the very best.
12 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Probably in my top 10 favorite episodes of all time. They way Nick, played by the brilliant Dan Hedaya makes the band play every few minutes, and lights the candles. Nick thinks because Diane was nice to him, she wants him, so he goes through all this hilarious stuff to try to win her over. I don't wanna ruin anything, so just watch it. You won't be sorry. Jean Kasem as Loretta is hilarious as usual. And the acting by everyone involved is superb, as always. Cheers deserves all the accolades it receives. And this episode, left me "Spellbound" with laughter. It's an absolute riot. I was in tears watching it it was so hysterical. An absolute classic.
