Storyline

85-year old WWI war veteran Buzz Crowder returns to Cheers to meet with surviving members of his squad from the 22nd Brigade. They meet every 10 years at Cheers to reminisce about old times. As the evening progresses, a lonely Buzz realizes that the number of survivors is dwindling. Another new patron to the bar, Kevin, who is a virgin to the world of booze and debauchery, embarks on his first, and last, wild night before entering the monastery. Meanwhile, Diane keeps a collection of memorable quotes that she hears in the bar - "snippets of Americana" as she calls them. Sam becomes irked as one by one, all the regulars, without even trying, make it into Diane's quote book except him, who has been spitting out quotes all night with great effort. Written by Huggo

Trivia

This episode was filmed early in the season. You can tell Sam has his earlier hairstyle from the original pilot. Also, in an earlier episode, someone wrote "the Double Deuce" on the chalkboard in the back pool room. This is a reference to Buzz Crowder's 22nd infantry brigade squad in World War 1. See more »

Quotes

Sam Malone: When I played baseball, I mean I used to get quoted all the time. I mean, reporters used to hang around my locker just waiting for me to say something intelligent.
Diane Chambers: I know the feeling.
