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.

The Last Picture Show (#11.18)
12 July 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode is about reliving the past. The drive in Cliff and Norm used to go to is getting closed. Them, Woody and Frasier go there to watch Godzilla. They do it by taking Cliff's mom's convertible and they also get in trouble with some other viewers and get the car damaged. And in Cheers the guy who used to own it comes by and Sam lets him be in charge that night.

It is an alright episode. Not extraordinarily funny but the theme is pretty good. The drive in trip is really a sort of reliving high school. There is the sneaking out mom's car, a mean bully, Cliff being ditched at different spots and so on.
