Despite Carla and Rebecca's protests against Gus' tactics, Sam, who doesn't agree with how Gus is running things, figures that he can make an old man happy ... Written by

During a conversation about an actress in the Godzilla series, Woody asks, "Why would an actress leave right in the middle of a successful series?" This is a reference to Shelley Long
, who left "Cheers" six years earlier. See more
In the 1982 episode "Sam's Women" a former Cheers customer named Leo comes in looking for Gus, the former owner of Cheers. About halfway through the episode, Coach tells Leo that Gus is dead. That would make it impossible for Gus to be back working at the bar for a night in 1993. See more
I bought this place from Gus.
Sam, you've been had. You already own this bar.
[to Sam about Woody
He must be Coach's boy.
