Storyline

Woody embarks on his new life as City Councilman. Norm embarks on his new life as civil servant as Woody pulled some strings to get him an accounting job at City Hall. And Rebecca and Sam embark on their new relationships... possibly. Don asks Rebecca to marry him. Will her regular "I've got to marry a rich man" impulse makes her say no? And after seeing her win an ACE Cable Award on television, Sam makes the decision to get in touch with Diane. Sam lies to her about how happy he is in his life, and he suspects that she too is lying about how happy her married life is. But only a visit by Diane to Boston may make both realize what they want in life, which specifically for Sam can be summed up by a comment from Norm: "You can never be unfaithful to your one true love". Cheers. Written by Huggo

Trivia

In one of the last scenes shows Sam straightening a photograph on the side of the bar. The picture is of Geronimo. This is an homage to the late Nicholas Colasanto, who played "Coach" Ernie Pantusso from 1982-1985. The picture held special meaning to Colasanto who hung in his dressing room. When he died in 1985, the picture was moved to the bar in his memory. See more »

Goofs

Always gets me
25 March 2018 | by kcjanaeSee all my reviews

I've watched Cheers from beginning to end more than once and this finale still gets me. This was a comedy done so well and the audience gets to know all the characters, making it a bittersweet ending. Hard to believe Frasier debuted so shortly after.
