Storyline

While discussing exciting things in their lives, Woody tells the gang that he was just an extra on the TV show Spenser: For Hire (1985), and that he had rubbed elbows with its star, Robert Urich. Everyone is excited for Woody until they see the episode on TV, where Woody claims that the ubiquitous "white shirt" on the screen is him. After that, everyone in the bar is skeptical of his story, until... Meanwhile, Norm is painting Cliff's apartment. Norm is expecting to get paid, while Cliff is expecting it to be a freebie, especially in light of the fact that Norm painted Ma Clavin's house for free - when Norm was not a professional painter - and that Cliff regards painting as menial work that even a trained monkey could do. This disagreement causes a rift between friends. A tit for tat may either resolve the rift or make it worse. Elsewhere in the bar, Rebecca has booked the pool room to a woman's book club every Sunday night to add a little class to the establishment. The book club ... Written by Huggo

Woody for Hire, Meets Norman of the Apes (#6.13)
2 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Woody gets a role as an extra in a Robert Ulrich movie and others don't believe him because one can't really see him on TV. And Cliff has Norm paint his place but doesn't want to pay him and makes fun of him. So they have a fight. And Rebecca has a book club meeting in the bar with old ladies who are getting very rowdy.

I already don't remember what his issue with the painters was, but the whole story of Cliff making fun of Norm because of what he does is my least favorite on the show. Cliff is just being mean there isn't that much funny stuff going on. I guess the most laughs are coming from the book club story.
