Meanwhile, Norm has added financial counselor to his resume and has made a tidy profit for one of his grateful clients. The gang at the bar all want in on Norm's next big investment opportunity, but he is reluctant to tell them what it is as business and friendship don't mix. Easily plied with free beer by Sam, Norm does reveal his next investment: Tan 'N' Wash, a combination tanning salon/ coin-operated laundry. Despite being skeptical, Sam, Diane, Cliff and Carla all buy in fearing losing out on Norm's winning streak.

Trivia

This is the first episode that someone who isn't a Cheers employee sets up Norm's entrance-scene one-liner. It's also the first person who isn't a regular cast member to do so. Recurring character Paul Krapence (Paul Willson) sets up Norm's entrance joke. See more »

Tan 'N' Wash (#5.6)
20 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Diane is going out with some guy and is trying to make Same jealous about it. Norm finds an investment opportunity and everyone wants in, he doesn't want to do business with friends but then agrees. When it doesn't go well everyone is mad at him and wants out. Later he succeeds and they are mad at him again. Only turns out he never got them out. And then a bad thing happens.

Well I am not a fan of Diane and Sam situation, but luckily there wasn't too much of it in this episode.

On the other hand Norm was at his best at this episode loved the character and the acting.
