Sam is trying to save money to buy back the bar, but things are going slowly. Rebecca suggests he sell his beloved Corvette to raise the money. After deliberating, he decides to do so, but he makes the process difficult for anyone to buy the car. After selling it and getting a cheaper replacement vehicle, he has seller's remorse. Can he get his beloved car back? Meanwhile, Norm is swamped with painting work, so Rebecca and Woody suggest he hire some painters to work under him. Norm is reluctant as he wouldn't know how to act as the boss. He does end up hiring three guys - Rudy, John and Scott - who end up being more buddies than employees. Their work ethic is lax. When Norm thinks out loud that he needs to hire another tough guy to be the boss, Frasier suggests that all he needs to do is develop an alter ego. The alter ego Norm develops is named Anton Kreitzer, who is akin to a Nazi dictator. To further the masquerade, Norm rents office space for him and Kreitzer, and hires a meek ... Written by Huggo

[Sam is interviewing potential buyers for his Corvette]
Sam Malone: This'll be pretty simple, here. Just a few multiple choice questions.
Dennis Hammill: Great. Shoot.
Sam Malone: Number one. It's high noon. You're driving in Harvard Square. Parking is limited. Do you: A. park in a handicap zone. B. park in a regular spot under a tree. C. drive around till a space opens up.
Dennis Hammill: C.
Sam Malone: [rants] What, are you nuts? I can't believe it, man. It's a trick question. You don't drive this baby at high noon, man. Sun damage, bucko. What the hell's wrong...

The Two Faces of Norm (#8.5)
8 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Norm hired some people for his painting business but he tries to be their friend boss and they never do any work. As solution Frasier suggests him to create another character, who is a boss above them and who is more strict. It gets a bot out of hand and the workers want to go and talk to him.

The idea is funny and I really like Norm but for some reason this episode wasn't as great as most. Still lots of funny moments with Norm portraying his two faces.

I guess the episode is not that great because the car story is pretty boring. Only funny moment was with Frasier telling Lilith to give back the car.
