11.21 Woody Gets an Election - Cheers Episode Guide
When City Councillor Kevin Fogarty comes to Cheers on his re-election campaign spouting a whole lot of political nothings that nonetheless woos the crowd, Frasier bets the gang that he can even get a trained monkey on the ballot and garner 10% of the vote. Without a trained monkey in sight, Frasier chooses Woody as a good surrogate. Frasier does indeed get enough signatures to get Woody on the ballot. Woody helps his own political cause when Holly Matheson, a local reporter covering the City Hall beat, mistakes Woody farm talk as an analogy for the problems of City politics. In an early poll, Woody garners 8% popular support, enough for the gang to concede defeat to Frasier. However, when Fogarty is caught in a public drunkenness spree, the gang figures that Woody can actually win the election and go full force on his campaign. Frasier takes this on as his own personal mission, that is until he has a nightmare of Woody as career politician in the White House inciting a nuclear war. He talks Woody into withdrawing his name from the ballot. Woody, listening to who he believes is the sage Dr. Crane, agrees and makes the announcement on the televised debate. His announcement however has the exact opposite effect. Woody breaks down in tears in an honest outpouring of emotion, and the emotions keep flowing when Kelly, also on air, tells Woody that she's pregnant. Fogarty knows that he's lost the election. Everyone's happy about Woody's victory except Fogarty and Frasier, who still dreams about a Woody incited World War 3.
