Sam and Rebecca are preparing for the grand reopening of Cheers. One of Rebecca's last tasks is to deal with the telephone repairman, a Lothario called Bernard who mistakenly thinks he's God's gift to women. Bernard has a belief system about every woman, including Rebecca, who turns down his advances. In the intervening time, Woody has been on his honeymoon with Kelly, although honeymoon is not quite what they would call it as they fought the entire time regarding their religious differences which they see as a major obstacle in having a meaningful and successful marriage. Woody is Lutheran Church of Missouri Synod whereas Kelly is Lutheran Church of America. The Drs. Crane suggest group counseling, in which Lilith and Frasier highlight their own on the most part successful marriage despite their differing religious backgrounds. But it's Frasier's simple advice to Woody that may at least partly solve Woody's problem. Carla has been making ends meet working at a chain bar called Mr. ... Written by Huggo

The Beer Is Always Greener (#11.2)
28 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sam and Rebecca get ready to reopen the bar. They send Cliff and Norm to get Carla for the big reopening. She is working as a waitress in a place that she really hates and can't wait to leave. But then she sees her paycheck and decides she wants to stay there. She quickly changes her mind though when she has to train somebody who is pretty much a copy of Diane.

After the sad episode we are back to all the fun. Carla at her new job is pretty funny. And the idea to bring in that anthropology student that made Carla just run back to Cheers was absolutely great.

So here we see, the other bar may pay more, have more beers and complimentary ribs, but Cheers is still the place they all want to be in.
