Storyline

The gang is celebrating its second anniversary of beating Gary's Olde Towne Tavern in bowling, their one and only victory in the bar wars. But they are also on a winning streak. The act of Gary stealing and breaking the bowling trophy reignites their war, of which Rebecca is unfamiliar. She refuses to participate, until the war starts to affect her. The pranks are generally mild but juvenile, but Rebecca agrees to Gary's offer of a truce. The cease fire quickly ends when Gary pulls another prank. Beyond the pranks, the gang at Cheers become paranoid about every stranger that comes into the bar, including someone who claims to be Red Sox power hitter Wade Boggs, who says he was sent by Gary to sign autographs. He looks like Wade Boggs, sounds like Wade Boggs, but does that make him Wade Boggs? The resulting end of this war is in the words of the wise "pretty weeny". Written by Huggo

Trivia

Cliff offers to begin his poetry reading with "The Ballad of Dead Ladies" by Dante Gabriel Rossetti. As with so many other facts cited by Cliff, this one is incorrect. "The Ballad of Dead Ladies" was written by 15th-Century French poet Francois Villon; it became well known in the Anglophone world after it was translated by Rossetti's younger contemporary Algernon Charles Swinburne.

Goofs

When Woody jumps over the bar to go with Sam to Gary's Old Town Tavern, there are three beer mugs in front of him. He slips and knocks one onto the floor. After a cut to Sam and Carla, it cuts back to Woody stumbling on the bar, and the glass is back on the bar next to his foot and nearly full. See more »
