Man at Drive-In (as Nick Oleson)


Cliff and Norm mourn the closing of the Twi-Lite Drive-In Theater and its associated memories of simpler times. In Ma Clavin's classic convertible, Cliff, Norm, Woody and newbie drive-inner Frasier - who ends up being trunk boy - head off to watch a Godzilla (1954) triple-header on the theater's last night. The foursome have a mixed evening at the theater, which includes enduring Cliff and Ma's rules of car etiquette and several run-ins with an angry car neighbor. But it's Ma's convertible that takes the brunt of the evening's battles. While the foursome are at the drive-in, Gus O'Malley, the previous owner of Cheers, stops by the bar. Sam offers Gus the opportunity to relive old times not only by tending bar, but managing the bar for the evening. Gus resorts to his old tactics of yelling and intimidation to get the staff to get working. 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... Written by Huggo

They hide Frasier in the trunk to get into the drive-in cheaper and Cliff breaks the key off in the lock when trying to let him out, which is the same scenario from Cheech & Chong's classic routine 'Pedro and Man at the Drive-Inn' from their 1973 album Los Cochinos. See more »


In episode #1.2 Cheers: Sam's Women, Coach discovered that Gus, the former owner of Cheers, had passed away. However, in this episode, Gus returns to work at the bar for one evening. Coach's source was obviously wrong about Gus. See more »


[Norm, Cliff, Woody and Frasier are watching the Godzilla movies at a drive-in theater]
Cliff Clavin: So, what did I miss? Why is that girl running around screaming at everybody?
Norm Peterson: Well, she's trying to convince them that Godzilla's merely confused, not really trying to hurt them.
Cliff Clavin: Isn't that the part usually played by Akira Nakamura?
Norm Peterson: Yeah, yeah, but she left half way through the Godzilla series.
Woody Boyd: I don't understand. Why would an actress leave right in the middle of a successful series?
