Carla, questioning Rebecca's potential parenting skills, bets her $5 that she can't take care of an egg for three days. Despite a rocky start, Rebecca seems like she's going to win the bet. Or does Carla have other things on her mind? Meanwhile, Norm is doing another paint job for the Cranes, during which Frasier accidentally falls on top of Norm, causing a bruised disk in Norm's back. Because Vera is away and Norm is immobile, Frasier suggests that Norm stay at their house on the couch until Vera returns. Lilith reluctantly agrees. Lilith ends up being at Norm's beck and call, especially getting him one beer after another. Just as Lilith is at the end of her rope, Norm offers his gratitude to her - she can't now kick him out. But there's another problem: Norm can't go to the bar, so the bar comes to Norm. How much will Lilith be able to handle of people, especially the Cheers gang, invading her house? Written by Huggo

The Norm Who Came to Dinner (#10.4)
24 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Norm gets a painting job from the Cranes but Frasier ends up falling on him from the ladder and Norm gets hurt. Out of guilt Frasier lets Norm stay on their couch, but then the rest of Cheers patrons show up. Lilith is tired of it and wants everyone gone, but Norm goes away even before the rest does.

A Cranes episode is always good. And lots of Norm in it doesn't make it bad either. It had some great moments such as Frasier arguing about the ladder with Norm as well as the way Lilith used to wake Frasier up. Lilith is a great part of this episode, she is great feeling bad about being a party pooper.
