Oh, Golly...

"When was the last time someone actually struck you?"

This is a wonderfully fun, sublimely silly episode. Sam and Woody compete to see which of them can get a kiss from Rebecca before the clock strikes midnight. The escalating stupidity of their attempts is hilarious, and Sam showing up in the Army uniform is the perfect over-the-top Season Six sight gag. Definitely one of the season's best, and even the usually-loathsome Carla is hilarious.

You can almost pinpoint this episode as the moment where Cheers went from a romance-based comedy to a clubhouse for idiots. Just wonderful.
