Frasier finds out some juicy information about Rebecca from her college days, specifically that she was the party girl on campus and that her nickname was Backseat Becky. Although embarrassed by the information albeit one where how the nickname arose not divulged, Rebecca ultimately uses the nickname to her advantage. Meanwhile, Cliff and Ma Clavin, who is just like Cliff in the "know-it-all" department, are on a roller-coaster of emotions regarding the possible selling of their house to commercial developers. Cliff wants to sell in the name of progress, whereas Ma Clavin wants to preserve the memories of their lives in that house and not sell. Cliff and his Ma have to come to a consensus, but someone else or something else may beat them to the punch. Written by Huggo

In the previous/first appearance of Ma Clavin in Cheers: Money Dearest, Cliff set her up with millionaire Duncan Fitzgerald, hoping they would marry and he would become rich. Instead, she convinced Fitzgerald to give the bulk of his fortune to charity. Now, on being given a generous buyout offer on their home she leaps at the chance, as she laments "last night I was poor", and is now enamored with the wealth and opportunity selling their house offers.

Dr. Frasier Crane: All right, stop everything. I've got a major news flash. I just had lunch with Miss Howe's former college classmate, and it seems that she had a nickname at UConn.
Sam Malone: Give, give.
Dr. Frasier Crane: Well, he wasn't sure how she came by this appellation, but it seems that at some point during her little sojourn there, she became known as... Backseat Becky.

The Last Angry Mailman (#6.7)
1 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

There is a mall to be build in the area where Cliff and his mom live. First Cliff is all for it but when watching the scrapbook with his mom he doesn't want to have his house demolished. But his mom now sells it for 250000 to go to Florida. So Cliff handcuffs himself to the house to prevent it from being destroyed.

I sure love to see Cliff with his mom. He is always a fun character but together they make it even better. The whole Yorkshire pudding conversation or them going through scrapbook were both pretty awesome and well written.

Rebecca's college story was not my thing. I don't see why she should be ashamed for having fun. But the way she got out of it was pretty good. And it was nice to have her have a little bonding moment with Carla because I don't want her to have the same relationships with other characters as Diane.
