Carla has given birth to her twins, which results in some short term waitressing issues at the bar. Sam decides to hire Annie Tortelli, Carla's daughter-in-law, since the Tortelli's are facing some financial hardships. However, Evan Drake would like Rebecca to hire his "friend", Laurie. Having already hired Annie, Sam and Rebecca let Annie work solely for tips. Sam and Rebecca's waitressing problems don't end there. Annie is falling for Sam, especially since Anthony is unemployed and a bum by Annie's standards, and since Sam made an offhanded comment about Annie being beautiful. Sam tries to solve both his and the Tortelli's problems with one maneuver. With Laurie, Rebecca suspects that she is Evan Drake's young lover, to which Rebecca is devastated. Rebecca has open animosity toward Laurie, and uses words like slut, harlot and tramp to describe Laurie behind her back. Rebecca needs to find out for sure if Laurie is indeed Evan Drake's lover. When Rebecca thinks she has her answer, ... Written by Huggo

One of very few Cheers episodes that made me cringe...
21 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would have given this episode a rating lower than a four, but I felt guilty with Cheers being my favourite show. This episode was sloppy. Anthony and Annie are just annoying beyond what I believed to be humanly possible. The Rebecca storyline was just plain silly (and I usually LOVE Rebecca.) If Bobbie Eakes wasn't so sweet and charming, I don't think I would have kept watching this episode. Sam was off, Carla was off, I don't even remember if Norm, Cliff, or Frasier were largely featured in this one. This was a little too early in the season to have a dud. Especially with a new cast member. Not Eichen/Steinkellner's best work.
