Storyline

Hank, a newcomer to Cheers, has the hots for Carla, but Carla won't give him an inch. He seems like a nice guy, but Carla is afraid that anyone that seems nice that is interested in her, or in who she is interested, has some rotten aspect in his life. Diane and the gang persuade her to take a chance, and after her initial grilling where she doesn't uncover any deep dark secrets, Carla starts dating Hank. After a few dates where things go very well, Carla ceremoniously dumps Hank. All are confused, including Hank. Sam finds out that the only thing that Carla and Hank haven't done is make love, Carla hesitant because this issue may be his one major fault. Allowing herself to be vulnerable, Carla whisks Hank off so that they can have some privacy. After they take off, the Coach however lets slip that Hank is indeed hiding a secret from everyone that could really affect if Hank and Carla should really get together. Because of Hank's secret, Carla, regardless, believes she will forever ... Written by Huggo
