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

If you love Cliff like I do you will love this episode. He refuses to sell his house to developers looking to build on the land, while Frasier discovers Rebecca's sordid college nickname.

John Ratzenberger is one of the most under-rated actors in sitcom history... just because his character was eccentric people took him for granted, but he is nothing short of brilliant in his eleven seasons on Cheers. Cliff Clavin is one of the most original- and realistic- characters in the history of television. I have personally known people like Cliff, and Ratzenberger's subtle portrayal keeps him likable in spite of the insanity. Frances Sternhagen returns as Ma Clavin, a perfect match for Ratzenberger, and the scene in which she changes Cliff's mind about selling the house is an all-star show for both of them. Believable, engaging, and truly funny... they could have had their own show.

The sequence in which the gang teases Rebecca about being "Backseat Becky" is classic, and so are the stories she tells to try to explain it. A wonderful episode.
