Storyline

There are a lot of transactions taking place in the bar this evening. Despite Rebecca's concern about its legality and its affect on the bar's license, Sam organizes the first sets of transactions: a basketball betting pool worth $500, $125 for each of the four quarters. Two reluctant bettors are Woody, who doesn't like to lose money or take money from his friends, and Rebecca, who eventually sees that $500 is more than she normally makes in an evening's work.

Trivia

It is unusual for a NBA game played in an Eastern Time Zone city to end after midnight Boston time, but it does happen on very rare occasions when nationally televised games begin later to accommodate the TV networks. See more »

Goofs

Woody initially doesn't want to enter the basketball pool because he says he doesn't like taking money from his friends. Then when he wins he is a poor sport by gloating, implying that he has never won a betting pool and doesn't know how to behave properly. However, in season 4, in Cheers: Fools and Their Money, the main story line revolves around Woody having been active in the Cheers football pool, and having won three weeks in a row - without gloating.
