Storyline

Malcolm Kramer, an older gentleman in the bar, has just found out he only has six months to live. He mentions to Sam that he was happiest when he used to tend bar when he was a student, so Sam suggests that he go behind the bar and relive his old college days. He does so and has a great time, and so does everyone in the bar. Before he departs, he leaves a note in the tip jar to show his appreciation, this note unbeknown to anyone else until after he leaves. It is an amendment to his will, written on a bar napkin, bestowing $100,000 to the gang at Cheers. After getting advice from Cliff and wannabe lawyer Tom on the legalities of the bar napkin, the gang want someone to go get Malcolm back to legalize the will amendment. They also fight amongst themselves for what they feel is their rightful individual share - that is, everyone except Diane, who does not like what the prospect of money is doing to her friends. After Malcolm comes back and legalizes the document, he leaves it up to Sam ... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Sam Malone: [on Malcolm's news that he only has 6 months to live] You know this may be none of my business, but, ah, have you ever thought about getting a second opinion? I mean, doctors do make mistakes.
Malcolm Kramer: Every doctor I've been to has given me the same diagnosis, and I've been to twelve of the world's leading specialists.
Sam Malone: Well, maybe you'd get better news if you went to a quack.
