Westphall, Craig and Auschlander go to the bar "where everybody knows your name," manned by a skeleton staff (Carla plus patrons Norm and Cliff). During the meeting at Cheers, Westphall announces he is quitting medicine. Craig later meets an old mentor who is suffering from advanced dementia and doesn't recognize him.

Donald Westphall, Mark Craig and Daniel Auschlander visit the titular bar from the sitcom Cheers
(1982), another NBC series based in Boston, and meet the barmaid Carla Tortelli (Rhea Perlman
) and two of its regular customers, Norm Peterson (George Wendt
) and Cliff Clavin (John Ratzenberger
). Carla reacts with disgust when Westphall tells her that they are doctors from St. Eligius. She refers to the hospital by its derogatory nickname "St. Elsewhere" and says that she had a negative experience when she gave birth to her son there. In Cheers: Little Sister, Don't Cha
(1983), Carla mentioned that she was going to St. Eligius to have her baby. It is also revealed that Norm is Dr. Auschlander's accountant. See more
