Patrons from a closed down bikers' bar start frequenting Cheers, which leads to fights and other problems at Cheers. To deal with these problems, Sam decides to hire Tiny, the former bouncer from that bar. Tiny does stop fights from happening, however he also scares away many of Cheers' regular customers. Sam realizes that Tiny has to go, but Sam and everyone else is scared of Tiny and Sam thus can't fire him. So the gang devise ways to get Tiny to leave on his own. This problem is nothing compared to Frasier's. Lilith just started cheating on Frasier with her colleague, Dr. Louis Pascal. This act she sees as a larger manifestation of problems in their marriage. However, she still loves Frasier and Frasier still loves her. He forgives her since he realizes that much of their problems are his fault. He wants Lilith solely to tell Dr. Pascal that she will never see him again, and the two of them can move on and work on their marriage. When she goes to do so, she may find other emotions ...

Teaching with the Enemy (#11.6)
29 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rebecca catches Lilith cheating on Frasier. So Lilith has to tell it to him before Rebecca starts talking. When she brings it up he is extremely upset. They talk and then she goes to tell Pascal she won't see him again while Frasier gets drunk at Cheers. When she comes back he tells her that he forgives her, but she says she is in love with the other guy and will leave Frasier.

I was curious how they will go on with Frasier. Considering that he is the spin off and divorce there I wondered if the divorce will happen on Cheers. It looks like this will be the case. I am sad to see them separating as they were my favorites on the show but they really are going in a good way about it the episode today had some humor, but mainly feelings.

Tiny was quiet a character! Felt bad for him as well.
