Rebecca discovers that it is the bar's 100th anniversary and plans a centennial type celebration, which is to include the Mayor of Boston, Raymond L. Flynn. The festivities don't end up being what she anticipates. First, she is the only one to dress in gay nineties costume. Second, the Mayor's office apprehends the ever over ambitious American, Cliff Clavin. Third, Mr. Weaver, a 106 year old man who Rebecca finds that lived in the neighborhood when the bar opened and who she invites to the festivities as a special guest, is a lecherous dirty old man hitting on all the women in the bar. Fourth, the barbershop quartet that Rebecca hires annoys all the bar regulars, especially Sam. And fifth, the two week overdue Lilith goes into labor. At the hospital, Lilith finds out that it is false labor.

Sam Malone: [reading a newspaper article] "100 years ago today, a new tavern opened at 112-1/2 Beacon Street."
Cliff Clavin: Wait, wait, a mailman never forgets an address, now. Why is 112-1/2 Beacon Street sending a message to my brain?
Carla LeBec: Probably because you're sitting on it.
Cliff Clavin: Carla, I hate it when you make those sitting on my brain jokes.
Norm Peterson: Cliffy, she meant 112-1/2 Beacon Street. That's Cheers' address. You're sitting here.
Carla LeBec: No, I was making a Cliff sitting on his brain joke.
Cliff Clavin: [to Norm] See, I told you. Thank you, Carla.

The Stork Brings a Crane (#8.6)
8 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rebecca decides to throw a celebration for Cheers becoming 100 years old. Even the mayor comes, but it doesn't last long because the old guy invited because he was there when Cheers opened fakes a heart attack to have women bend over him and Lilith goes in labor. So now Frederick Crane is born.

Well that old guy pinching women is a good view on what Sam will become at that age! I liked Norm's way to bring back the time by getting cheaper alcohol! Clever.

And very excited about the Crane's being parents, I am sure we will get to see some more great things besides the celebrating the first gas!
